This is the event where anything can and does happen normally. But this year it may have gone a step further, as a child was spotted driving a cart uncontrollably down a path, towards spectators and almost onto the practice green at Waste Management Phoenix. Open.
The dramatic footage was posted to Twitter by Barstool Sports and can be seen below:

Luckily, it appears no one was seriously injured, although the man who was dragged alongside the cart could have a few bumps and bruises tomorrow. The only thing that suffered significant damage was a fence, but it could have ended much worse.
And this is not the first incident of the week in which people have found themselves in danger.
In the first round, Xander Schauffele underestimated a cactus for the last time. When his ball came to rest near some native vegetation, the Californian, unfamiliar with this particular plant, found himself plucking thorns from his hand after he attempted to clear his way for his next shot. .
“It seemed like a good idea at the time,” said the Olympic gold medalist.
Before that, on Wednesday, it was a courageous cameraman who took a hard time. It’s dangerous enough to get in close when the pros are hitting, but to stand right in the line of fire during pro-am day is looking for trouble.
And trouble is what found a photographer as he lined up a stray rod of celebrity Matt James on TPC Scottsdale’s famous par-3 16th. Fortunately, once again, the man in question escaped without serious injury.
After the round, James said: “I really want to apologize again for that. I wasn’t aiming for you, quite frankly, I don’t think I was aiming for anything. I don’t think I would have had to come out here.
“I was telling the guys I spent six hours at Topgolf and it obviously didn’t pay off. I’ll be back next year and I’ll try hard by then. The only way is up. “
Only at the Phoenix Open…
