The best way to avoid putting on the greens at Chambers Bay is to hole out from the fairway, as Jason Day demonstrated in the second round of the U.S. Open.
Day started his round on No. 10 and made the turn at 1-over for the day. The first hole wasn’t looking too good either: he blasted his bunker shot over the green, which rolled and rolled and rolled to about 70 yards away. But his fourth shot on the par-5 took one hop on the green and dropped in the cup for a spectacular birdie. The only thing better was his reaction. He launched his wedge in the air in celebration.
Day took the momentum to the next hole and birdied No. 12 also.
