Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 152
Having missed his approach to the right of the 13th green, he tried to run a chip up over a mound and onto the putting surface, but was brought undone by that vice-like fescue rough that wrapped its tendrils around his ball and held it back just enough to stop it short of the top of the greenside embankment. It was just another of the hundreds of shots played throughout the major week that would have been good enough on any other course, but was nowhere near the mark at this seaside graveyard. The ball rolled back down the embankment – a wasted shot at a time when Day could least afford it. He walked to the next tee with a double-bogey six and his hopes of victory all but dashed. If Day had remained healthy throughtout the US Open, who knows what might have happened? Maybe Jordan Speith would never have got near him. But it is yet another ‘what if’ in Day’s growing and worrying collection of near misses. He admitted post-round that all he can do is continue to put himself in the frame and hope that just once his body and mind can hold out long enough to see things through to a golden conclusion. “I fought the good fight and I think everybody that watched the telecast knows that I never gave up,” he said. “And I feel like different opportunities will come down the line.” Day will likely never play a tournament under as much strain as he endured this week. He can take that mental victory to the bank. Now let’s hope that next time his body comes to the party, too.
