I can confirm I've never seen anything like this in professional golf. Kevin Stadler's drive on the 11th hole at the Phoenix Open was suspended in the air by a cactus spine.

Stadler was allowed to take an unplayable and drop within two club lengths. He went on to double bogey.

Stadler didn't have to play the same ball because it was deemed dangerous for him to try and reach in to grab it.

Stadler was 17 under and the leader through 10 holes on Sunday.
