“The guy is soft on the big stage.” “Can’t finish it off when he’s in the last group at a major.” Gotta question his heart.”
Just a few things the media was saying about Jason Day.
With a win at the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits he shut that talk up.
After winning the first round of the FedEx Cup playoffs, he flushed it away for good.
Nobody ever looked more in control of things in a major in a long time as Mr. Day at the PGA Championship. He was 20 under par for crying out loud!
The only thing that may have wandered even a bit was his TaylorMade Cap when he was brushing the tears out of his eyes on the final green.
Fast forward a couple of weeks to the Barclays.
Not in the last group on the weekend? No problem. Just go out and shoot 63-62 to win the tournament.
Let me say that again. 63-62!
“Holy Domination, Batman.”
This is not the same Jason Day that was robbed of major tournament wins because of fear robbing him of his saliva (those are his own words). This time, he was licking his chops. He’s set with his mindset, his preparation and his equipment.
With his son at his side after being interviewed following the Barclays, he gave his normal “Cheers” to say goodbye to David Feherty, but Feherty was already walking off. A cool and calm Jason Day waited for Feherty to turn around (after someone no doubtedly told him to) and shook his hand.
With a smile.
Going to be interested to see how the FedEx Cup plays out over the next few weeks, not to mention the President’s Cup.
It’s a new Day.
