There was a ton of action on Thursday at the U.S. Open, from long birdie putts to quadruple-bogeys to guys hitting golf balls at fans (And media members).

Lee Westwood was on the 6th hole at Merion Golf Club when his second shot flew the green and headed for the grandstands. A young fan was on his toes, snagged the ball in the air like he was expecting a foul ball.

The best part about the fan that caught the errant second shot? After making par, Westwood tossed the ball up to that same fan who now not only has a highlight, but a memento from Merion.
