A Michigan High Schooler Just Wants To Golf But This Goose Has Other Plans

The story also was picked up by The PGA of America, which wrote on its website: "Though geese can be handsome when watching them fly in flocks, the truth is they can be a real nuisance to golfers".

A golfer in a high school golf tournament in MI got too close to a goose nest.

In golf, you're doing pretty well if you get a birdie, or even better, an eagle.

According to the Blissfield Athletics Twitter account and Golf Digest, "The golfers just finished teeing off and were walking down the fairway".

Photos of the incident quickly made their way online.

"It's been insane", said Isaac Couling.

"I did par that hole", he told the Detroit News.

When you see a Tweet you love, tap the heart - it lets the person who wrote it know you shared the love.

"They were aware of a goose nest on their left, which they were looking at but not bothering, when from behind them and to the right came the guard goose (protecting the nest)", he told The Detroit News.

The birds were near extinction at one point, the state agency said, but their populations have boomed across the continent because of wildlife management programs and the Canada geese's adaptability. "It's pretty insane. All my friends were talking about it".

That golfer continued playing after the attack and parred the hole.
