Isenhour "Tripps" Up

Just when you thought PGA players were gentlemen, this idiot pops up.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)—PGA Tour player Tripp Isenhour was charged with killing a hawk on purpose with a golf shot because it was making noise as he videotaped a TV show.

Isenhour was with a film crew for “Shoot Like A Pro” on Dec. 12 at the Grand Cypress Golf course. The 39-year-old player, whose real name is John Henry Isenhour III, was charged Wednesday with cruelty to animals and killing a migratory bird.

Note to "Tripp:" BIRDS MAKE NOISE!!!

According to court documents, Isenhour got upset when a red-shouldered hawk began making noise, forcing another take. He began hitting balls at the bird, then 300 yards away, but gave up. Isenhour started again when the hawk moved within about 75 yards, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer Brian Baine indicated in a report.

Isenhour allegedly said “I’ll get him now,” and aimed for the hawk.

“About the sixth ball came very near the bird’s head, and (Isenhour) was very excited that it was so close,” Baine wrote.

A few shots later, witnesses said he hit the hawk. The bird, protected as a migratory species, fell to the ground bleeding from both nostrils. (H/T - AP via Yahoo!)

When I first saw this story, I figured it was the jerkasses from PETA going kooky again. After reading the story, I have to admit that, if true, Isenhour is a skunk of the first order. Feel free to aim your golf balls at this arse clown if you see him on the course.
