Dustin Johnson asks about moving a car in the parking lot in this hilarious rules situation

We prefer when rules situations aren't too serious. For Dustin Johnson at the RBC Canadian Open, the World No. 1 couldn't help but flash his sense of humor and propose a scenario where he might call on some fans to move a car. Yes, a car.

DJ's errant tee shot on the par-5 10th hole at Glen Abbey in Oakville, Ontario ended up next to the parking lot on Thursday. Perhaps conjuring memories of Tiger Woods and one of golf's most memorable rules scenarios, in which Tiger called on the crowd at the 1999 Phoenix Open to move a large boulder at the par-3 15th hole.

Here's DJ debating pulling a Tiger on Thursday at Glen Abbey.

We would've liked to have seen the fans try to move the car. That would've been right up there with Tiger's "loose impediment" at TPC Scottsdale. But DJ was more practical, took the drop and escaped with a par on the par-5 10th hole on Thursday.

Still, knowing how emphatic Canadian golf fans are, there's a good chance they would've obliged DJ's request for some group elbow grease to move the car.

I mean, just imagine fans like these below in Arizona moving a car? Next time, DJ, ask around and take them up on it.
