Of all the distractions one might face on a golf course, a couple of angry birds isn’t typically one of them.
But for a man trying to hole out at Singapore’s Orchid Country Club, that’s exactly what happened, as two agitated birds refused to stop harassing him.
It appears the two had become confused and mistaken the golf ball for one of their eggs, and were suddenly very protective of it.

Video taken by a friend that appeared on the website Live Leak this week shows the frustrated golfer try to gently shoo the birds away with his club.
However they are not having any of it.
The birds can be seen circling the ball and trying to protect it, and lash out at the man as the tries to approach.
By the time the one-minute clip finishes, the man is no closer to getting that ball in the hole.
