Last Sunday, it was the driving range at Royal Birkdale. This week, it’s the parking lot at Glen Abbey Golf Club.
Dustin Johnson launched a drive so far left off the 10th tee in his opening round of the Canadian Open that he ended up right beside a car in the parking lot. Johnson wandered over to his ball, surveyed the situation, then asked the rules official, “Can I have that car moved? We got enough people.”
I know you’re wondering…is a car a movable obstruction? Yes it is, if the car can be moved with undue delay by the owner of the vehicle.
Play has since been suspended due to lightning so Johnson got to take relief away from the vehicle. He is currently 4 under in his round and just three off the lead, so he’ll be looking to avoid any other errors when play does resume.
