Golf Australia Express : Issue2
his first major appearance, and his preparation was far from normal (he got his start after Norman withdrew). Since then, Day’s performance in the following three majors has been as good as anyone’s: tied for 10th, tied for 2nd and outright 2nd at the 2010 PGA Championship, and this year’s US Masters and US Open respectively. There’s little doubt that Day has matured significantly in the past 18 months—both as a player and an individual. Gone are the signs of the brash, cocky teenager that arrived on the US Tour in 2006 with all the belief in the world and a lucrative Taylormade adidas sponsorship to go withit.Thatcanbealotfora young man to deal with. Many labelled him with the premature (and overused) tag of potentially being “The Next Tiger”. While that clearly puts unfair pressure on a kid starting out, now five years on since first stepping out with the Big Boys, Day is showing off some Tiger- like qualities (the good ones, of course). Day’s quickly becoming a Sunday-specialist. His performance in the clutch is certainly worth noting— just relive his US Masters final round or his final two rounds at Congressional last month. His 12-under tournament score at Augusta set a Masters record for the lowest score by a first-time participant. Those performances were simply amazing considering the pressure involved. Oh, we haven’t mentioned he’s still just 23 years old. With the rare talent he possesses, the strong intestinal fortitude he’s now showing—as well as a maturity above his age—Day’s gonna give us plenty to cheer about in the coming years. And hopefully, that cheering begins at St George’s this weekend. Kids, forget Tiger. This is your next idol.
