It’s one of the craziest things I’ve seen: Tiger’s ball hit the pavement in front of the clubhouse and bounded onto the roof. Now he’s standing there and the entire tournament has come to a halt as people search the roof for his golf ball. It seems as though he’s actually contemplating hitting it from there if they find it—the roof, he has determined, is NOT out of bounds. (The ball is in the yellow circle above. The arrow indicates the direction that it travelled. After it leaves that bluish area, it passes over the white part of the roof, where it disappears from the camera)
More as the story unfolds.
He should just take a drop and get on with it. It’s not like this is a major. Of course, the question then will be WHERE to take the drop.
Now, from what I can gather, it turns out that the ball ended up in the parking lot, where it was picked up by a spectator. Because the ball was moved by an outside agency, he gets a free drop.
Napoleon once said that it’s better to be lucky than good. It may be true in golf, too.
