Pro-golfer, Tripp Isenhour killed a hawk because it was annoying him during a taping of a video at Grand Cypress Golf Club in Orlando Florida. He used his own golf equipment firing nine golf shots before the tenth hit its mark and knocked the hawk out of a tree killing it.

Bird keeps on chirpin' chirpin' chirpin',
I'll end his future.
Bird (bleeps) my chippin' chippin', chippin',
He's one dead rooster.

I'd be "the fly" bag an eagle,
Don't ya see.
"Fly" bag an eagle,
I can hear it from the tee.
I want to bag me an eagle,
In a tree,
Yell, fore! two iron's the solution.

Need no caddies,
My ball's in the rough, un-teed.
Shoot a mid-iron,
Wedge could shoot a bird-ie.
How's the three hole?
Hittin' ball is treed.
Uh-oh, face prosecution.

I want to try for an eagle,
Off the tee.
Try for an eagle,
Can't you hear it calling me?
I want to bag me an eagle,
In a tree.
Die, do this sound pollution.

I keep on chippin', chippin', chippin',
Balls at that rooster.
He keeps on chirpin', chipin', chipin',
I'll end his future.
I keep on chippin', chippin', chippin',
Balls at that rooster.
He keeps on chirpin', chipin', chipin',
I'll end his future.

It be so "fly" bag an eagle,
Off the tee.
Try bag an eagle,
I will clear it out that tree.
Lined the lie for an eagle,
Now's due the restitution.

Bird's no more chirpin' chirpin' chirpin',
Ended his future.
I keep on chippin' chippin', chippin',
I killed the rooster.

Well done, Guy. I hope that jack*ss Isenhour gets and serves every instant of the possible 14 months and pays the fine, to boot. Better yet, sentence him to a stunt role in a remake of "The Birds." :-)

I've had my share of birds flipped towards me and flipped the occasional one myself, but "chip the bird" was a new take on things. BTW - Is there really a golfer named Tripp Isenhour? The link you gave is dead already and to me it sounds more like the name of a chapter in Lord of the Rings or the secret service code name for a 50s president on the move... ;-)

Very good, timely parody. As an animal lover, I am saddened by the hawk's death; but since the likelihood of even a pro golfer hitting a bird from 75 yards are remote, I don't think Mr. Isenhour should be prosecuted.

Stan - This particular species of hawk is endangered. This golfer is a jerk. He must be a lousy golfer because I once saw Lee Trevino on TV hit two balls in rapid succession and made them collide in mid air. This guy took 10 shots at a stationary object before finding his mark.

Peter - Yes that is his name. I'm surprised that the story went dead that fast. I tested the link out in preview and it worked. Here is the URL:

It is working, I tried it on another computer so I know that I was not getting cached info. LOL - on that secret service name. But that is the name in the article. I was clued into this story from television news yesterday. The event actually happened in December, 2007.

JJ - You wouldn't say that if you saw Lee Trevino collide those two balls in mid air. He was just a lousy shot who got lucky on his 10th attempt. Book 'em Dano!

Thanks all for the feedback on this parody.

Nice double entendre.

555 for this very funny Golfers' parody! It is hilarious, because golfers often take themselves & their game way to seriously!

Sir John - Thanks for weighing in. Fly like an Eagle came immediately to mind when I saw this story on the news yesterday. I usually don't submit anything on the weekends - I'm usually busy writing for the next weeks submissions but this one was a bit time sensitive so I fired it off.

M'Lady don't I know it about golfers. I grew up on golf courses and was a caddy for a while at a snobby country club. I hated those rich snobby golfers who were entirely stingy with their tips. I say we give them all the bird. Everyone of them was a 3 putz. I was also on the golf team in high school. I snagged an eagle once on a short par five - sunk a short chip shot from just shy of the green. But no birds died because of it. Thanks for gracing my page with your kind comments, M'Lady.
