Third-round leader Jim Furyk found himself in a rocky situation Sunday at Pebble Beach, literally.

His tee shot on the par-5 sixth hole went right and over the cliffs overhanging the beach. His ball stopped on top of an outcropping about midway down, and Furyk was able to scramble down and assess the situation.

Earlier in the tournament, Ryuji Imada had a similar situation on the seventh hole -- and found a way to get up and down.
