Rory McIlroy found an unlikely hazard at the Tour Championship on Friday when his tee shot landed in the pocket of a fan.

The craziest part of the whole thing is that there is a rule in place for how to handle such a situation.

All McIlroy had to do was take a drop where the spectator had been standing, but I say the penalty should be that the fan gets to take your next shot.
