Jason Day took interest in golf when he was six years old. At 20, he already wanted to become the best golfer in the world. Now, being No. 1 in this sport, he enjoys the feeling that no one can be better than him—at least, for the moment.
The fact that Jason Day’s performance has been compared to Tiger Wood’s games shows that the Aussie plays at his best right now. Day matched the PGA Tour record of 124 strokes in 36 holes and won the BMW Championship. Now he has time to relax in a cruise. His six last starts had been very successful and his 4 victories prove it. This young golfer now is the best player in the world, moreover, he matched another record of Woods and Singh—Day gained 5 victories in one season. He is the third and the youngest player from Australia to reach the top of the PGA Tour ranking list. His victory was not easy—the tournament involved 70 top golfers, including Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose. The drama unfolded at Friday night but already on Sunday it was almost gone and Day showed excellent results. All the mistakes Day had made early in the tournament he compensated with his perfect short game. The former No. 1 player Spieth said that Jason’s performance was so great that he would buy tickets to at least watch it. The Aussie is not some underdog who has suddenly started playing gloriously, he was expected to show a high level of skills. Among other top 30 players, the Aussie had the best scores and entered Sunday with a six-shot lead.
While teaching his 3-year-old son Dash how to put a stoke on the 18th green, Day thanked his coach Colin Swatton for the help in analyzing the pin positions. Swatton has been training the golfer since he was 12 years old. It has always been fun to watch how Day dominated his peers but now his game is especially thrilling.
Nevertheless, his competitors Spieth and McIlroy try really hard to win the title of No. 1 golfer in the world, so we can not be sure who will be on top in a few years.
