PGA.com reports the images were snapped by Devon Pitts at a high school golf tournament at Wolf Creek Golf Course in Adrian, Michigan. Pitts’ stepson plays golf for Blissfield High.
“I take photos for recreation,” Pitts said. “I give the photos to the school for the yearbook. For eight years I’ve been shooting photos as a hobby.”
What she captured over the weekend has gone viral and has people everywhere clutching their sides.
“A group just finished teeing off on hole No. 7 and were walking down the fairway,” Steve Babbitt, director of athletics for Blissfield, said. “They were aware of a goose nest on their left which they were looking at but not bothering. Isaac Couling — a golfer from Concord High School — was just walking with his bag, when up from behind them and to the right came a guard goose protecting the nest.”
Blissfield Athletics tweeted the images, along with the caption, “And you thought golf was boring?” The post has been retweeted more than 12,000 times. It must be payback for all the times Golfers have nailed Geese.
