Shot of the day? Leishman eagles 18

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla -- Prior to this year, the 18th at TPC Sawgrass had been eagled just twice in the history of THE PLAYERS Championship. That number has doubled in just two rounds this week.

In the first round, Jason Dufner became the third player to accomplish the feat when he holed a 158-yard approach shot.  (Watch it here). 

Today, Marc Leishman joined the short list when he holed out his 172-yard second shot on the par-4 finishing hole. 

Leishman said he was between clubs, a 9-iron and a wedge, but he opted to hit a hard wedge. His caddie said the shot would probably finish in the ditch in front of the green, but that it was better than being long.

Replied Leishman, "Don't worry about the ditch. I'm going to hole it."

Then he did.

"So we had a little bit of a laugh about that."
