Just when it looked like a bunker shot by Zach Johnson was going to zoom past the hole, it hit the ball of Johnson's playing partner and redirected its path right into the hole for a birdie. Should the ball on the green have been marked?

@PGATOUR on Twitter
In a situation where he happily would have taken a par following a wayward tee shot, Charley Hoffman instead made an improbable birdie on the 18th hole at Bay Hill on Saturday to grab a share of the 54-hole lead.

The sixth hole at Bay Hill features a lake along the left side. On Saturday, that body of water claimed two of Emiliano Grillo's golf balls and then he gave it his club too.

Henrik Stenson
@PGATOUR on Twitter
Interesting things happen when Henrik Stenson plays a golf ball from water (remember Doral in 2009?). On Friday, Stenson played from some water at Bay Hill and ended up barefoot and putting with a wedge.
