High School Golfer Attacked by Goose Moments After Teeing Off News | ≡OutdoorHub Reporters9 hours ago26 Shares Share Tweet Text

While Couling managed to escape the ordeal relatively unharmed, his pride took a knock as the images, shared to the Blissfield Athletics' Twitter account, drew widespread attention.

The golfers' presence obviously ruffled the feathers of the guard goose, which chose to charge Couling and, although the golfer did his best to run away from the unhappy bird, he was just not fast enough.

Golfers always hope to get a few birdies on the course - but don't usually expect birdies to get them. "I was laughing quite hard after the attack was over". You can have, as one Twitter user put it, a "quiver full of bird maulers" and a whole high school athlete's worth of physical power, but the goose is going to win every time.

"He stood up after the 2nd picture and tripped trying to run away resulting in the 3rd picture", Blissfield answered.

Someone else joked about how the golfer was likely not in any real danger, saying, "Hilarious".

Devon Gilson-Pitts, whose husband is an assistant coach for the Blissford team, says she drove in a golf cart with her husband to get between the golfer and the goose.

Sometimes, you go out golfing ready to tee off.

Couling said he still ended up shooting par on the hole despite not being able to use his clubs because they fell out when he flipped over and the goose was guarding them.
