Phoenix Stone

in Stone

Tiger Woods, participating in the final round of 13th hole in Phoenix Open during 1999, tee off ball to the left of Fairway, and the ball stopped behind a big stone, which had 4 inches long with 2 inches high as well as 2inches wide. Obviously, it was pretty frustrating to lose to Thomas Bjørn on the 19th hole in the first round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. People focus on the bad tee shot I hit, but that's not the only reason I lost. I hit two terrible pitch shots on the back nine and have worked hard to change my release with my chipping. We'll see if it pays off at Doral.It is impossible for one person to move it. Whereas ball was just near to the stone and in this case people always have to give up one strick, returning to the position, again swinging burner superfast 2.0 just as I stated before.

However Tiger seemed confident with this situation.Putting asideping g15 fairway, pointing at the stone and told the judge that the the stuff seemed more than a stone, it was likely to be something movable. According to golf rules, natural articles that originally grows in the earth or fixed on the ground, even adhered to the ball, shall be called movable objects, such as stones, leaves and animal dung. If it makes a difference to the results, it is allowed to move it aside without any punishment. Size and weight are not mentioned in rules and Tiger had just got this point.

Judge agreed with the definition of movable stone. However here comes another problem whether stone was inserted into the earth. After several circles around the stone, watching from the bottom, judge finally claimed that it was on the ground other than insert it. Thus Tiger, together with the judge, caddie, other player and audience, started to move the stone. With assist of all the people, Tiger showed his great appreciation with shaking hands with everyone who helped him, aiming at the hole, and the ball flied into the green steady.
