Tiger Woods finished second in the PGA Championship this past weekend, just two shots behind winner Brooks Koepka. Woods posted his lowest round on a major Sunday in his career - shooting a 64. He needed one or two more birdies to earn his 15th major.

Tuesday, a user on Reddit posted a video that suggests that Woods may have been a bit distracted on the fifth hole. The user uploaded a video that shows Woods having to deal with a cell phone going off just before his swing.

It's unclear if Woods hears the cell phone, but it certainly seemed loud enough. Woods did not back off his shot. He immediately knew it was headed right when he hit it.

It landed in the crowd to the right of the right rough. Woods saved par, but perhaps he lost a chance at birdie.

You can watch the video here.

The video seems to line up with what users saw on television. The PGA posted a compilation of every one of Tiger's shots this past Sunday. You can see the one in question below. He's upset the second he hits the ball.

Woods thanked the fans after the tournament, so he couldn't have been too upset. That said, it'd be nice if everyone in the crowd would figure out how to put their cell phones on silent - especially when players are swinging.
