Conditions were brutal Friday at Doral. The wind was whipping. A record number of balls found the water. And if that wasn't bad enough, Luke Donald's ball was carried off by a fan.

In the video below, a photographer is seen chasing a group of girls after one of them walked away with Donald's tee shot. Fortunately, he let them know that, well, that ball's not up for grabs. Donald was able to drop his ball without penalty.
