Jason Day doesn’t regularly appear at Muirfield Village when not competing at the Memorial Tournament, but he is a Columbus, Ohio, resident about a half hour away from Dublin.

"“Well, everyone says it’s my home club and it is to a certain degree, but before this week I only played nine holes in the last two years here, so not a lot,” Day was transcribed by ASAP Sports in 2022. “Even though I live like 30 minutes away. I’m too lazy to get in my car and drive 30 minutes to a championship golf course. I’d rather go to another championship golf course 10 minutes away.”"

He has plenty of competitive reps on property, though.

Day is making his 15th start at Muirfield Village this week. He’s made 10 cuts with two top-10s, both coming in 2020. The Aussie took T-7th (69-71-70-67) that year at the Workday Charity Open and followed with T-4th (73-66-72-73) the next week at the Memorial.

After missing the 2021 Memorial, Day took 31st (71-74-68-75) last year.

It’s already been a wildly successful season for the 35-year-old. Injuries and personal tragedies have robbed him of some of his prime years, but he’s turned back the clock over the last year or so.

In the 2022-23 PGA Tour season, Day has seven top-10s. None was sweeter than his win at the AT&T Byron Nelson. It was his first win in over five years in a full-circle moment at the site of his maiden PGA Tour victory.

Day likely ran out of gas the next week as he missed the cut at the PGA Championship. Rest last week should allow Day to recalibrate as he prepares to try to win major No. 2 in a couple weeks at the U.S. Open.

He ranks sixth on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained per round (1.851). He’s also 11th in SG off-the-tee (1.254).

Day’s always had a good short game. That continues this season ranking second in scrambling (69.11%).
