PGA Tour event held at the TPC at Scottsdale's Stadium Course: Playing the par-five 13th hole, Tiger hit his tee shot to the left of the fairway, well in-bounds but in the desert. His ball came to rest near a boulder that would interfere with his swing toward the green.

After surveying his situation, Tiger asked Rules Official Orlando Pope if the boulder was considered a loose impediment. Though the boulder was the size of a large steamer trunk and estimated to weigh nearly a ton, Pope correctly informed Tiger that, yes, this boulder is considered a loose impediment under the Rules of Golf. Tiger then asked members of his gallery if they would assist him in moving this rather large loose impediment. After much heaving, pushing and finally cheers, the boulder was moved out of Tiger's way.

With a clear shot, Tiger went for the green, made a birdie 4 but ended the tournament three shots behind Rocco Mediate.
