Golf Australia Express : GA Express 202
WORDS BY ADRIAN BALLANTYNE “J ASON, would you like three bogeyless rounds at the Open Championship?” “Why, yes I would!” If you’d offered Jason Day three blemish-free days at St Andrews’ Old Course last year, he, like any of the pros competing that week, would have jumped at it, and probably kidnapped you for safekeeping in his RV. Day’s extraordinary display of consistency was one of the highlights of the 2015 tournament. The Australian had a brilliant week, and even led the field in two critical statistical categories – driving distance and scrambling. But it wasn’t enough to win. The Australian’s week featured six birdies to get warmed up on Thursday, five in his third round and another two on Sunday, along with four birdies and a trio of bogeys in the second round. And yet he couldn’t get the job done at the year’s third major. Day’s final 12 holes of the tournament, played for 12 impressively consistent but frustratingly water-treading pars, needed something more. Eventual winner Zach Johnson found birdies over the same stretch – five of them, in fact – as did Day’s playoff-bound compatriot Marc Leishman and South African Louis Oosthuizen.
