On June 7, 2007, actor Rob Lowe was participating in the Principal Charity Classic Pro-Am at the Glen Oaks Country Club in West Des Moines. Lowe was hitting an approach shot on the par 4 fourth hole when his ball collided with an Eastern goldfinch - the state bird of Iowa -- in mid-flight. The ball dropped about 50 yards short of the green, while the bird dropped dead.
