When the news broke during the Masters that it was a person watching at home that outed Tiger Woods's mistake and cost him a couple of shots the world was a little shocked. Could it actually be that simple to mess with/have an effect on the outcome of one of the most prestigious events in golf?

Quail Hollow has been a symbol of perfection for 10 years since it returned to the PGA Tour lineup, a beautifully manicured golf course where the six major champions who have won ranged from Tiger Woods to Rory McIlroy.
It is less than perfect this year. Some have even compared the greens to a rundown municipal course.
