Jason Day’s fourth win in his last six starts came in a familiar fashion–he put on an absolute ball-striking clinic at the BMW Championship.
The new top-ranked player in the world won by six strokes Sunday at Conway Farms and made a mockery of the stats rankings for the week in the process. Day led the field in driving distance (312.6 yards a pop), strokes gained tee-to-green, strokes gained total and birdie average (6.25).
The Aussie used all the same clubs at the BMW Championship that he did during his victory at the Barclays, with one important exception–Day’s victory is the first for the new TaylorMade M1 driver. His version is 10.5° with a Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver TiNi 70x shaft.
Day’s irons are TaylorMade RSi TP (4-PW) with Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver TiNi 80x shafts.
At Conway Farms Day also ranked eighth in strokes gained putting, fifth in putting average (1.611), T7 in one-putt percentage (50 percent) and T10 in putts per round (26.75). Click here for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of his TaylorMade putter.
