    You can't make stuff like this up.

    Professional golfer Kelly Kraft did just that when he was was playing the par-3 14th hole on Friday at the Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. He hit a 7-iron toward the green, but his ball hit a bird in midair and plopped into the water. Kraft went on to double bogey the hole — and missed the cut by just one stroke.

    He took it all in stride and said he's looking forward to next week's tournament.
