GIF: Jason Day hit his ball into a hazard, then went on an epic adventure to find it

August 09, 2014

It was an auspicious start to the third round of the PGA Championship for Jason Day. The Australian playing in the final pairing hit his drive really far left on the par-4 second hole, which was interesting in and of itself. But the subsequent sequence of events put that moment to shame.

At first, everybody thought Day's drive was lost, but he wasn't ready to give up that easy. He ditched his socks and shoes and waded across the fast moving river in search of his prize.
