Jason Day is taking the “Everything’s bigger in Texas!” proverb to heart.
Facing Graeme McDowell in Day 1 of the WGC-Dell Match Play, the Aussie entered the fifth hole at Austin Country Club already down two. So last week’s winner at Bay Hill did what most normal humans do when teeing off on a 340-metre hole:

Day birdied the hole, gaining one back on McDowell.
The Queenslander is one of the longest hitters on tour, and his distance advantage has been on full display this year.
Still, 340 metres? Don’t be surprised if Day’s “randomly” selected for a drug test after his round.
Meanwhile, fellow Aussie Marcus Fraser drained a 57-foot bomb for eagle during his match against American Zach Johnson. Check it out below:
