There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Rob Lowe is a truly powerful man.
He has the power of fame and fortune, the power of a supremely handsome face and the power to kill flying birds with golf balls!
Rob went on Conan recently to reveal he hasn't played golf in a long time, ever since… the incident.
Back in 2007, Rob was playing in a celebrity tournament in Iowa. At one point, he "hit a really – I thought – nice sand wedge" which sent his golf ball rocketing through the air and right into a flying American goldfinch!!
That's like a million to one shot! What's even crazier is that was also Iowa's state bird! Oh noes!!
What an awful lottery to win. You beat the odds to kill a bird with a golf ball.
At least if people ask Rob how his last golf outing was, he can say he hit a "birdie!" Golf jokes!! LOLz!
