Anthony Kim put his tee shot on the short par-4 10th into a fairway bunker, but that was the least of his worries on the hole.
Kim’s bunker shot, from 88 yards out, went over the green and rolled up underneath a wooden fence and against a tower for a television camera.
As Kim waited for a PGA Tour rules official, he sat on the top plank of the fence, which then broke. After his initial surprise, Kim turned to the gallery with a sheepish look.
After a lengthy discussion with a rules official, Kim took a free drop. He chipped about 10 feet past the hole, then holed his putt for a miraculous par. He looked skyward briefly, then burst into a wide smile.
Jim Furyk followed by making his own putt, for a birdie, to snap a three-way tie with Kim and Vijay Singh and regain the lead.
