HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. -- Ahn Shi-hyun's drive on the ninth hole at the LPGA Championship on Friday hit a robin, killing the bird in a puff of feathers.

"It's a shame," marshal Nina Dawson told Reuters. "The bird was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was instantaneous."

South Korea's Ahn made the turn at 2 under par for the second round and was 1 under for the tournament.
