Day thanks Johnson for 'most clutch thing' at US PGA

Over on 18, Dustin Johnson followed suit, albeit a little less dramatically.

Day, Johnson and playing partner Henrik Stenson hurried through just after the horn sounded to suspend play for the day due to failing light in the weather-interrupted second round. Since he teed off, even if the horn blew to stop play, his group could elect to finish the hole since one ball was in play.

"I was hugging him".

While Day and Henrik Stenson were finishing up on the 17th green, Johnson sprinted to the final tee, shouted at the group ahead to watch their heads, and got his drive away just as the official raised his arm before sounding the horn.

"And DJ [Johnson] is like, 'I'll do it.' And I'm like, 'That's great'".

"We were walking up, and we were talking about if we could get a tee shot on 18, we could finish the round", Day said, according to GolfDigest.

"Have you ever seen a shot like that in a major championship?" said Nantz, fighting off laughter. Obviously to be able to finish and not have to wake up at 05:30 [local time] tomorrow, get some rest.

Pampling - who finished at 14-over, missing the cut - took one for the team on the par-4 ninth, helping ensure his group wouldn't have to return early in the morning to play their final hole.

"That was the best thing I did all day", Pampling quipped.

Pampling was not that upset, however, as he had no chance of making the cut.

All three players finished with a double bogey on the hole.
