Almost every aspect of Jason Day’s game has been in great shape all season. Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open, his putting finally caught up.
One of the game’s best ball strikers and longest drivers of the ball has been plagued by a balky putter at the worst times, most recently on the back nine Sunday at St. Andrews. But the last few holes Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open were an entirely different story.
Trailing David Hearn by two strokes through 54 holes, Day shot a final-round 68 to take a two-stroke clubhouse lead that eventually led to a one-stroke win over Bubba Watson. Day birdied each of the last three holes, two-putting the par-5 16th for a four, then sinking putts of 12 and 22 feet for birdies on 17 and 18.
For the week, Day finished T2 in putts and third in putts per GIR. He was also fourth in strokes gained/putting and fourth in distance of putts made.
Day’s putter is a TaylorMade Ghost Spider IB.
