20,000 fans are following Rocco and Tiger. It sure is tough to see the action especially if you're not a tall person, as is my situation. Thus I'm watching from the media center and just waiting for a situation where Tiger or Rocco hit their ball into the crowds near a green.

Davis Love III had a lucky break when his stray shot hit into the crowd during the 2003 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. You can check out the video here.

Rule 19-1 covers the situation. In accordance with the Rule, Davis Love had no penalty and played his ball where it lied.

I wouldn't be surprised to see something similar occur today.
