Rob Lowe got a birdie while golfing in Iowa but it wasn't the type he wanted.
Lowe was playing in the Principal Charity Classic Pro-Am in West Des Moines Wednesday.
He was on the fourth hole when he hit a shot that hit a goldfinch and killed it. Adding insult to injury the goldfinch is the Iowa State Bird.
Lowe currently one of the stars of the ABC-TV series "Brothers & Sisters" was chagrined and remorseful.
