Fourth time PGA Tour winner Viktor Hovland was left laughing in disbelief during the first round of the Open Championship on Thursday after a bird took relief on him as he prepared to hit the ball on the 15th hole.
Hovland, 25, was about to hit his approach shot when he suddenly took a step back and looked around.
