Golf Australia Express : GA Express 272
COVER STORY feasted on his poor play and what appeared, at least outwardly, indifferent attitude in 2017 and he will now look ahead and take confidence from the last time he won the same event in 2015, which kicked off his most prolific year to date with five wins, including his lone major title. “... being able to win in 2015 really propelled me to a really great year,” he said. “I won my first major, got to No.1 in the world and I'm hoping to do much of the same this year.” While Day hopes the similarities to 2015 continue and return him to his desired spot atop the world ranking his trip to Australia at the tail end of 2017 has also had a positive impact on the Queenslander, who it now appears now his importance to the game in his home country. “It had been four years since I had played in Australia and I wanted to put on a good show in front of the home crowds, but I didn't do a good enough job and that really frustrated me because I played some good golf at The Australian.” “Being in contention gave me a lot of confidence coming into this year,” Day told AAP. “Jordan won the Australian Open and went on to dominate the next year. “I wanted to use that same platform for myself to be able to do the exact same. I didn't but sometimes with a loss and failing, it spurs you on to try even harder.” It seems Day’s closest call at his national open has done just that and the positive outlook exhibited by the reinvigorated Day after his win in California will only further endear him to a home supporter base that has often been fickle to the man who, at just 30 years, of age has plenty of time to join the conversation as one of our best ever – something Day himself has in his sights. “I've always wanted to be a dominant No.1 player in the world and that is going to take time. That's going to take a lot of hard work and dedication because I know how hard it is to get to No. 1 in the world...” Day said. “I'm going to have to give my life to this for the next 10, 15 years to be able to hopefully achieve that goal one day.” E Day celebrates with son Dash after his play-off victory over Alex Noren.
