Somehow I think that in all of that long time the course was enjoyed he could have figured out how to block that shot if he wanted to. Or maybe figured out that he should have made that a par 3 to start with, since there was no safety issue. That people enjoyed the course does not justify ignoring the rules. And if expecting courses to be designed with at least the hope of being played according to the rules is being a purist, then I gladly accept.
