In the past 24 hours, we've seen plenty of evidence to prove that a pile of rocks is not a golfer's friend. Scott Piercy is challenging that idea.
While teeing off on No. 17 during the third round of the Humana Challenge, Piercy's shot bounced off the rocks and wound up coming to a rest in the middle of the green. The results for him could have been much worse, as you can see in the video:
Piercy ended up making the putt for a birdie to move to 3 under for the round.
Yesterday at the Humana Challenge, we saw a Zach Johnson shot go backwards and land in the water after hitting some rocks. A few hours later at the Champions Tour's Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Hawaii, Bernhard Langer ended up with a quadruple bogey after a run-in with lava rocks.
Later on in the round, James Hahn hit a similar shot, and actually got his ball closer to the hole.
