Shot Of The Day From Riviera: Luke Donald

Northern Trust Open third round leader Bill Haas' workmanlike 64 was spectacular under the firm conditions and tough hole locations. But other than a pitch-in on the short 10th, his round yielded few must-see shots.

Except there was Luke Donald on 13.

Television didn't convey just how hard this shot is to draw around the tree and then get to sit quietly once it nears the green, nor was CBS able to get in a replay of the shot in between its laundry list of promos.

Donald posted a 70, leaving him at -8 and four back of leader Haas.

Ky's right, but Gary McCord as an announcer is not!

The miracle of that shot was the distance control. Rescue clubfaces are a little springy, and landing that ball precisely in the rough to take something off that first bounce was remarkable. I daresay a little luck was involved there, too.
