How cool is it to see Jason Day finally putting things back together again? Whether he was dealing with injuries, family issues or just a general lack of “feel” in his golf game earlier this year, it’s starting to look like the former World No. 1 is getting back in the groove that brought him to that point once again.
Day is coming off a week at the PGA Championship that may have given him that competitive boost we’ve been looking for. He finished tied for ninth place two weeks ago at the PGA Championship, then tied for sixth on Sunday at The Northern Trust. Interestingly, it was the first time that Day had consecutive top-ten finishes since last year’s PGA Championship and The Barclays.
If we’re ever going to get that “must see” version of Day again, he should have this week’s tournament marked on his calendar with a giant circle. Over the last six years, Day has finished outside the top 25 at TPC Boston just once, with a 51st place finish in 2012. His best finish came in 2011, when he tied for third, just two shots behind Webb Simpson and Chez Reavie.
Now that Day is starting to have some success, whatever mental blocks may have been in his way seem to be disappearing. If he’s actually got his game back together, he’s going to win again very soon.
