Day Preparing Physically and Mentally for PGA Season Finales
Jason Day is oozing confidence as the 2015 – 2016 U.S. PGA Tour season meanders toward its conclusion.
He is keenly aware of where he stands in regards to one of his coveted goals, that of being declared PGA Tour Player of the Year. He would also like to solidify his world number one ranking, and put some daylight between himself and number two Dustin Johnson, who certainly must loom large in Day’s rearview mirror at only 18 points out of first place.
In terms of the Player of the Year award, Day reports that not having won a major this year, whereas Johnson has the U.S. Open victory to his favour, might prove a factor. The money list is very tight, with Day leading by three to four hundred thousand USD, a lead that could evaporate with a low finish or a Johnson win.
Then, there is the lucrative FedEx cup with its $13 million bonus to the winner.
Day would like to return to play in Australia for the first time since 2013 at the top of the heap. No worries, mate, no deadly mosquitos here, but the crocs and the roos have been acting aggressive of late.
