There's no other place in golf like the par-3, 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale. The 163-yard hole seems like a simple, straightforward challenge. But when you put a stadium-like structure around it and add 20,000 rambunctious fans, it takes on a little different feel.

When things go well, the crowd will reward you with cheers and adoration. Miss the green and find a bunker, you'll be greeted with a loud chorus of boos. 

But when you're Matt Kuchar and you almost give the crowd the first ace on No. 16 since Francesco Molinari in 2015, it's a very loud chorus of "KUUUUUUCH" that rains down. 

Take a look at the incredible shot by the four-time Ryder Cupper that missed by just inches below:
