Thursday it was Justin Rose shanking a ball over a bunch of Florida white hairs and nearly hitting a truck. Friday it’s Jason Day hitting a ball into a bird’s nest at the Arnold Palmer Invitational where the pros are making Clay proud with a variety of wild shots that remind us of the OutKick founder whacking balls onto a Gulf of Mexico beach.
Day’s adventure came on the par-5 16th hole where his tee shot never came down BECAUSE IT WAS STUCK IN A BIRD’S NEST. It’s unclear where Day found binoculars, but he used them to spot the ball in the tree and talk a rules official into letting him take an unplayable drop at the tree.
Still, he ended up with a double-bogey seven on the hole, which hurts bad because No. 16 is playing as the easiest hole. Day is 2-under and will make the cut, even after the bird’s nest fiasco and finishing his round two over.

You know who doesn’t hit tee shots into bird’s nests because he takes the trees out of play? This guy!
Spent the morning playing the Kamaleon course at Mayakoba down on the Mayan Riviera. Hard to have a more majestic swing than this. Pitching wedge into the ocean green. While my golf game is awful, the course is fantastic. pic.twitter.com/pfVDy5Gvcx

In my opinion he should have been given a Birdie and moved to the next hole.
I see what you did there 😉
Perhaps pro golfers could pay Clay NOT to post his golf videos, as it appears he is a massive jinx. Just a little side business for Clay.
