Tiger Woods might not have gone on to win the 1999 Phoenix Open, but his errant tee shot at the par-5 13th in the final round did create one of the most incredible sights in PGA Tour history.
Just two years after his famous hole-in-one on the iconic Stadium Hole par-3 16th, Woods sent his drive well left into the desert and his ball came to rest behind a giant rock. This rock wasn't just big, it was incredibly heavy. So weighty in fact it required a football team of Tiger fans to roll it out the way...
Fans help Tiger move a boulder in front of his ball at the 1999 Phoenix Open. He would get up and down for birdie from the bunker.———————————————————————— Follow @vintagetigermoments for more! #tigerwoods #phoenix #1999 #golf #instagolf #boulder #itsnotaboulderitsarock #whyilovethisgame #pgatour #goat #vintage #birdie #golfcourse #tpcscottsdale
