Golf Australia Express : Issue 48—PGA Championship
A QUIET YEAR ON the PGA Tour for Australia’s Jason Day has not only hurt him in the hip pocket—currently sitting on $3.2 million less than he earned in 2011—but his standing in the world rankings has also dropped significantly. Following a stellar 2011 season that saw him finish runner up at the Masters and US Open, secure a dozen top 10s and a career high No.7 world ranking, Day has now slipped to the No.23 position. The 24-year-old Queenslander has only teed it up at a dozen events this season, his slim schedule due in part to niggling injuries and the birth of his first child, Dash Day, taking focus. And his return to golf since his son’s birth at last week’s Bridgestone Invitational was as expected from a sleep-deprived first-time dad. Day finished T29 at Firestone—not a bad effort, all things considered, but one he’ll need to improve on. If Day wants to reach his stated goal of becoming the world No.1 golfer, as well as enjoying a year similar to 2011 when he earned himself just a tick under $4 million, he’d want to get his skates on pretty soon. What better way to get the ball rolling again than at the PGA Championship this week? OTG Jason Day Missing In Action: Stat: World Ranking NUMBERS DON’T LIE...
