Jason Day puts a shot right into a spectator's gift bag

AUGUSTA, Ga. — You can spend thousands at Augusta National's gift shop and you'll never get something in your bag like this: a genuine in-play ball.

 Day had to use the ball to finish the hole, but he got a free drop, and was able to get up and down for birdie. Not a bad escape.

Day, one of the trendy pre-tournament picks to win this year's green jacket, started the day at 3-over, seven strokes behind leader Bill Haas. If he makes it to the weekend, he'll be a long way behind the leaders.
