Jason Day's second shot of the 2018 Masters landed in a bizarre spot: in an Augusta National patron's beer cup.

Day was playing the difficult par-4 first hole to kick off his Masters, and his second shot went right, hit a tree, then bounced off a patron's shoulder and into his beer.

Day arrived to see the state of affairs for his ball, and the patron chugged their beer and handed the ball to Day, who said, "Thanks, mate." From there, he took a free drop from the cup.

Day did not get off to a great start in this Masters, making a bogey on the first hole before making three more bogeys in his first seven holes of the tournament.

The Aussie won the 2015 PGA Championship, and he finished tied for second in the 2011 Masters and third in 2013. He's already won this season, taking the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open in a playoff.
