Jason Day is taking the "Everything's bigger in Texas!" proverb to heart.

Facing Graeme McDowell in Day 1 of the WGC-Dell Match Play, the Australian entered the fifth hole at Austin Country Club already down two. So last week's winner at Bay Hill did what most normal humans do when teeing off on a 370-yard hole:

He drove the green.

Day birdied the hole, gaining one back on McDowell.

Day is one of the longest hitters on tour, and his distance advantage was on full display last summer at Whistling Straits.

Still, 370 yards? Don't be surprised if Day's "randomly" selected for a drug test after his round.
