Australia's Jason Day joined an elite club Sunday with his second shot on the par-4 14th at the Players Championship.

Day struck a 5-iron from 185 yards and the ball rolled into the cup, only the fourth eagle on the 481-yard hole in the 30 years The Players has been held at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass.

''I didn't even know it went in until everyone started yelling,'' Day said.

The eagle helped Day shoot a 4-under 68 and finish at 9-under 279 for the tournament.


Day's eagle was the first at No. 14 since Ken Duke in 2007. Ralph Landrum (1984) and Corey Pavin (1994) also made eagles at the hole that historically plays as one of the toughest on the Stadium Course.
