Cinderella kills Robin with golf ball

No we are not talking about a warped episode of Batman but this news-

Ahn Shi-hyun’s drive on the ninth hole at the LPGA Championship on Friday hit a robin, killing the bird in a puff of feathers.

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

Ahn in spite of her fowl crime, managed to shoot a two-under 70 today and stands at -1 for 36 holes.

*- Shi Hyun Ahn’s nickname on the LPGA Tour is Cinderella. She was only 19 years of age when she won her one and only LPGA event. A few years ago, some food establishment asked what golfer went by that nickname and as a result my home blog was getting lots of visitors who wanted to know what the answer was.

Update- A commenter referred me to this story where a Tom Kite tee shot hit a bird. In Kite’s case it resulted in a double bogey and took him out of contention for a Champions Tour title.

For my reader’s viewing pleasure, I updated this post to include a picture of the tasty Ms. Ahn. Enjoy!
