Watch Jason Day's incredible par save at the PGA Championship

Jason Day wasn’t making things easy for himself to start his third round. After scrambling for par on the first hole, the 26-year-old Australian snapped his second tee shot into the leafy creekside hazard and had himself an adventure finding it.

Day had to hike up his pants, ditch his shoes and socks and get acquainted with a creek named "Floyd's Fork."

With help from his caddie and on-course commentator David Feherty, Day found his ball and thumped his wedge through the jungle grass and across the fairway.

His third shot took him to 11 feet, and then Day finished it off with the unthinkable: a par putt.

 

Day was asked about the shot following his round.

"I was too lazy to actually get my shoes thrown over [the creek]," Day said. "I either hit it in my bare feet or put my shoes on and have to take my shoes off. I was like, 'We're going to be behind, way behind. So I may as well hit it with no shoes on.' It was a great four there, a lucky four."
