It was 21 years ago at TPC Scottsdale, when a horde of fans helped Tiger Woods move a boulder that was blocking his approach shot at the Phoenix Open.

The boulder was by loose definition a loose impediment.

Last year, some fans helped Brooks Koepka, who was in a similar situation in Saudi Arabia.
