Just when it looked as though Jason Day was in big trouble late at the AT&T Byron Nelson on Sunday, he went ahead and chipped in for a birdie to take the lead.

Just when it looked as though Jason Day was in absolute jail after a wayward tee shot at the par-4 15th hole coming down the stretch at TPC Four Seasons on Sunday, he turned what looked like it would be at least a bogey into the most improbable birdie to take the lead late at the AT&T Byron Nelson.

Check out the video below. First, Day punches out from tree trouble into rough short of the green and behind a bunker.

Then, he goes ahead and holes out:

 

 

With the chip in, the 2015 PGA Champion moved into sole possession of the lead at 12 under, one shot better than Billy Horschel with three holes to play.

From 201 yards out, Kirk Triplett nailed his target during the final round of the Regions Tradition on Sunday, the first major of the year on the PGA Tour Champions.

The Regions Tradition -- the first major championship on the PGA Tour Champions schedule for 2017 -- is going on in Birmingham, Alabama, this week.

On Sunday, Kirk Triplett aced the 201-yard, par-3 17th hole -- his eighth of the day -- at Greystone Country Club.

Here's the shot:

 

 

At the time, Triplett went to 9 over for the tournament and 2 under for the day.

The PGA Tour Champions heads to Virginia next week for the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Trump National.
