Jason Day

There are countless examples of what exceptional players the top golfers in the world are. This shot by Jason Day is just one of those.

Jason Day will be at TPC Sawgrass this week to defend his title in the Players Championship.

The former world No. 1 -- currently No. 3 -- hasn't teed it up since missing the cut with teammate Rickie Fowler at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Ever since, no surprise, he's been working on his game.

Check out this video posted on May 4 of Day splitting the uprights of a tree from the rough:

That was a tiny, tiny window and he lashed at the ball as if there was nothing in front of him.

What makes the video most impressive to these eyes, is that he's hitting that ball and pulling off this shot from what looks like some pretty thick and hairy rough.

I sure wish we could see where the shot ended up!

golf dog
This man figured out a way to get in some work on his short game while also getting his dog some exercise.

Dogs are the best, aren't they?

Check out the video below of a man working on his short game. Instead of hitting a bunch of balls and collecting them with a shag bag when there aren't any left, he just waits while his dog chases the ball down and returns it to his feet:

What's better than working on your game and getting your four-legged, furry friend some exercise?

Man, I can't even get my dog to sit.

Man's best friend also man's best golf ball retriever

golf meltdown
We've all had that feeling on a golf course where we want to throw our club -- or clubs -- in the nearest body of water, but don't act on it. This guy did.

Any day on a golf course beats a day spent at the office, right?

Looks like someone forgot to tell this guy:

We're not sure what precipitated this meltdown, but we'll go out on a limb and guess that it was a less-than-ideal golf shot.

The good news is that if the lousy shot was the club's fault, the man won't ever have to worry about the club being stubborn again.

With a dramatic birdie from long-range on the 72nd hole Sunday, Brain Harman took the clubhouse lead at the Wells Fargo Championship and then won moments later.

With Dustin Johnson and Pat Perez tied for the clubhouse lead late at the Wells Fargo Championship, Brian Harman had one hole to play.

His goal was to take the clubhouse lead at 10 under by making birdie at the par-5 18th, or at worst sneak away with a par, join the party at 9 under and hope for a playoff.

Harman made the 18th a lot of work and was faced with a 28-footer for birdie.

Here's what he did with it:

As it turns out, after Jon Rahm failed to chip in for eagle moments later, that putt won Harman the golf tournament.

It's his second win on the PGA Tour to go along with his 2014 John Deere Classic triumph.

John Daly, on his way to his first win since 2004, was sure to make time for the late Arnold Palmer as he walked to the 18th green at the Insperity Invitational.

John Daly, 51, won the Insperity Invitational on Sunday -- his first victory since the 2004 Buick Invitational on the PGA Tour.

As a tribute to Arnold Palmer this week, the King's famous umbrella logo was painted on the 18th fairway at the Woodlands, site of the Insperity Invitational.

While Daly was strolling to the 18th green, surely overcome with emotion as he was about to win for the first time in 13 years, he still made time to pay homage to Palmer.

When Daly reached the umbrella logo, he went down on his knees and gave it a kiss:

Moments later, it was sweet victory for the 1991 PGA Champion:

Then it was time to celebrate:
