That's something you don't see every day.

During Round 2 of the Crowne Plaza Invitational on Friday, Jimmy Walker's tee shot on the 17th hole didn't go where he wanted it to. That was because his ball ended up hitting a bird in the air.

Fortunately, Walker's shot was still close enough to the fairway, and the bird was able to fly off.
