Nearly 20 years to the day that Tiger Woods employed Phoenix fans to help him move a boulder blocking the path of his intended target, Brooks Koepka did the same in Saudi Arabia.
Playing the par-4 15th hole in Round 2 of the Saudi International, Koepka pulled his tee shot into a sandy area, his ball coming to rest behind a large rock. And just as Tiger did in the 1999 Waste Management Phoenix Open, Koepka got a little help from his friends to move the “loose impediment”.
Koepka went on to bogey the hole and shot even-par 70 on Friday to survive the cut.
