Golf fans hoping to navigate around Augusta National near the 13th hole might have been confused for a brief moment Friday during the second round of the 2024 Masters Tournament.

Bryson DeChambeau, who entered the second round as the major's front-runner, had a directions sign in his way of his second shot. His solution? Simply yanking it from the ground.

โ€œTaking signs down? Donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever seen that," an announcer said on the Amen Corner live stream.

With the help of a volunteer, DeChambeau moved the sign out of the way and returned it after his shot. He ended up making an incredible recovery on the hold and drained a 14-foot putt for a birdie.

Golf fans seemed to enjoy that odd moment:

DeChambeau later bogeyed the 18th hole to finish with a one-over 73 in the second round. He will enter Saturday's third round at six under par.
