Fan Swipes Luke Donald’s Golf Ball

The newly-redesigned course at Doral is playing tough.  Really tough.  The scoring average for the second round Friday was 76, a full four strokes above par.  Only three rounds were under-par Friday and an absurd number of golf balls found the water…113 in all.  For former world No. 1 Luke Donald, he had to deal with more than just the course en route to his 10-over 82 Friday...

WATCH: Chick Walks Away With Luke Donald’s Ball, Gets Caught

Well, I guess this girl didn't get the memo that it’s golf and not baseball where a fan keeps a home run. If a player hits a shot and if it goes near the fans then the fans must make room for the player to hit their next shot. Instead, this fan decides to take the ball and walk away but then returns once an official spots her in the act. At least she was a good sport about...
