Tiger's drive hits goose, makes birdie on same hole!

Cape Town - Former world No 1 Tiger Woods knocked a goose off its feet, but still managed to make a birdie on the same hole on the final day of the PGA Tour's Honda Classic on Sunday.

Woods laced a three-wood down the fairway at the 427-yard par-4, eighth hole and his ball landed just as an Egyptian goose came into the firing line while out for a stroll.

Unfortunately for the goose, it could not outrun Woods' ball and took a blow to the rear feathers which knocked it off its feet.

Fortunately it appeared uninjured and unperturbed by the incident.

Woods would go on to hit a wedge to eight feet and roll in the putt for birdie.

Woods, now ranked 544th in the world, wound up at level-par for the tournament, which was good enough for 12th place overall.
