Jason Day Wins Wells Fargo PDF Print E-mail

 

 

Jason Day celebrates his second win of the season at Quail Hollow Sunday.

 

 

 

Charlotte, North Carolina - Jason Day didn't win the PGA Championship

last August, but at this year's Wells Fargo Championship, he managed to

hold off young Aaron Wise and a resurgent Nick Watney to get the win at

Quail Hollow.

 

Day who started the final round with a two-stroke lead, had his share

of ups and downs on Sunday. He birdied the second hole, bogeyed the

fifth & sixth and then proceeded to run off three birdies in the next four

holes. On the inward nine, he saw his lead disappear with back to back

bogeys at the thirteenth & fourteenth holes. Then, when he needed it

most, Day showed his pedigree - playing the brutish "Green Mile" in two

under par to finish off the stellar leaderboard of challengers that included

Wise, Watney, Mickelson, DeChambeau, Casey, Reed, McIlroy and Rickie

Fowler.

 

Afterwards Day reflected on his performance, "I didn't have the best day

off the tee and even into the greens, but I had a really good day on the

greens and around the greens."

 

The victory for Day was his second of the season, and his 12th career

PGA Tour title. He is the only Australian to hold the distinction of having

that many PGA Tour wins and a major championship by age 30. Day

moves into 2nd in the Fedex Cup standings behind Justin Thomas.
