VIDEO: Dustin Johnson hits tee shot subsequent to parking lot during Canadian Open

Dustin Johnson knows how to ask a interesting question.

The World No. 1 launched a expostulate during Glen Abbey’s par-4 10th good left during his opening turn during a RBC Canadian Open. So distant left in fact, that a turn came to rest only inches from a parking lot.

Play was dangling during 3:45 p.m. Eastern due to lightning thereafter, so service divided from a parking lot will have to wait. But a check did not come before Johnson asked a flattering comical doubt about a intensity choice … “Can we have that automobile moved?”

The official’s (likely facetious) answer of, “We got adequate people,” might be equally humorous. Johnson is 4 underneath in his turn and only 3 off a lead, so he’ll be looking to equivocate anything shocking on this hole when play does resume.

Parking lots entrance into play is not a unfamiliar judgment in golf. Seve Ballesteros famously got up-and-down for birdie from a parking lot on his approach to feat during a 1979 Open Championship.

Interestingly, Glen Abbey has a most some-more argumentative story here. In a 1984 Canadian Open during this site, Greg Norman strike one over a 17th immature into a parking lot.

The turn was announced in end and Norman would make a advantageous spook on his approach to a two-shot feat over Jack Nicklaus.

Decades later, Nicklaus remained austere that over a 17th immature was out of end and chafed that Norman got to play his shot from there with no penalty.

“Greg had unequivocally strike it out of end and got to play it from a parking lot,” Nicklaus said.

The 18-time vital champion also added, “I consider we won (that tournament) and had it taken divided from me.”

We don’t design scarcely this most play with Johnson’s journey toward a parking lot, though we never know.
