No birdies, no eagles, but ... : By now you've heard the story and seen the pictures from an incident in Michigan in which a high school golfer was attacked on the course by a goose. Photos of the Concord High School sophomore trying to break away from the goose went viral.
The Detroit Free Press caught up with Isaac Couling, 16, on Tuesday to get the details of what happened on the seventh hole at Wolf Creek Golf Course in Adrian, Mich.
Couling was walking to his ball when he saw a female goose under a tree and tried to avoid her because he didn't want to rile her up.
"And then I look behind me and there's a goose flying about five feet from me, and that's when I started sprinting," Couling said.
Riflery, trap shooting in peril? An Assemblywoman representing the Upper West Side and parts of Hell's Kitchen in Manhattan has introduced a bill that would in effect kill the sports of rifle and trap shooting teams in New York's public schools if passed into law.
Archery would also be affected if Bill A10428 makes it out of the Education Committee, is passed by the Assembly and Senate (which does not yet have a sponsor onboard) and then is signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The proposed law reads as follows:
1. No public school shall offer marksmanship and/or shooting programs.
2. For purposes of this section, marksmanship and/or shooting programs shall include any competitive and recreational sporting activities involving proficiency tests of accuracy, precision and speed in using various types of ranged weapons, such as firearms and air guns, in forms such as handguns, rifles and shotguns and/or bows or crossbows.
3. This act shall take effect immediately.

The New York State Public High School Athletic Association conducts a regional rifle championship in the winter season each year.
Trap shooting is poised to take a huge step forward beginning this week when 59 school teams kick off their season in the radiply expanding New York State High School Clay Target League, a club-level activity outside the authority of the NYSPHSAA.
The NYSHSCTL projects more than 1,000 participants this spring.
