As footage of the miraculous shot shows, the goose becomes aware just a bit too late and attempts to scramble away from the rolling golf ball before it sends it tripping over its feet. 

Luckily, the Egyptian goose appeared to be completely unaffected and happily carried on walking through the fairway.

Woods came into Sunday’s outing with a seven-stroke deficit, needing to muster a masterful finish to have a chance at winning the tournament. 

In the end, Woods finished with an even-par 70 and 12th on the leader board. 

The Honda Classic was held at the  PGA National Golf Club, Champion Course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
