Golfer Ahn Shi-hyun Hits And Kills Robin With Tee Shot At LPGA Championship

robin-chris-odonnellIf one wanted to make broad generalizations about particular ethnic groups based on just a couple of data points, you could say that Koreans love hitting birds with balls.

Shin-Soo Choo of the Cleveland Indians hit a seagull with a ball last night, and now today, LPGA golfer Ahn Shi-hyun hit a robin with a tee shot at the LPGA Championship.

The bird died instantly in “a puff of feathers.”

“It’s a shame,” said marshal Nina Dawson. “The bird was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was instantaneous.”

The LPGA made news earlier this year by encouraging its golfers to tweet, but this was definitely not what they had in mind.
