I do get the occasional birdie but this one was on the fourth hole of the racecourse course.
It was with a 7 wood from about 210 yards after a drive that left me on the left of the fairway in light rough.
It was literally a birdie, as I struck the ball a bird flew up in front of me about 50 yards ahead,hit the bird full on and left it doing cartwheels down the course. Sadly it was so badly injured I had to put it out of it’s misery. I was somewhat squeamish but when I asked my playing partner (Another aged Brit) to do the dirty deed he ran away!
Anyway, one birdie I am not proud of!
