Jason Day Is Unstoppable In The Barclays
Jason day has had an incredible few weeks. At this moment in time he seems unstoppable. After winning his first major PGA Championship he was a doing it again at The Barclays.
It wasn’t just the fact that he won, it was the manner of the victory, winning by 6 shots. His putting is now the best it’s ever been and right now he doesn’t seem to miss anything. Jason is without doubt the form player and now completes a formidable trio with Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.
The next three events coming up will see all three competing which should make things very interesting. Where would your money go? From a spectator point of view this should make for some great rounds of golf.
Jason Day on Sunday fired a final-round 8-under 62 to cruise to a six-shot victory at The Barclays and take the first event of the FedEx Cup playoffs. Here’s how Day ran away at Plainfield Country Club:
Leaderboard: Day (-19), Henrik Stenson (-13), Bubba Watson (-11), Zac Blair (-10), Zach Johnson (-10)
What it means: This is Day’s sixth PGA Tour victory and fourth this year, following wins at the Farmers Insurance Open, RBC Canadian Open and PGA Championship.
Sunday marks his third win in his last four events. He joins Jordan Spieth as the only players to win four times this season and Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods as the only players to win four or more times in a season after 2009.
Since missing the cut at the Memorial, Day’s last six finishes look like this: T-9, T-4, 1, T-12, 1, 1. He has broken par in each of his last 20 rounds and is a combined 73 under during that stretch. Per Golf Channel research, with a win next week at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Day can potentially jump both Spieth and McIlroy to take over as No. 1 in the world.
Round of the day: Day matched the round of the tournament, first posted on Saturday by rookie Carlos Ortiz, making eight birdies without a single dropped shot. He needed just 125 strokes over the weekend at Plainfield, going 63-62.
