Golf’s final major was much anticipated with tons of storylines the biggest involved the top two players in the world. Would Rory McIlroy ankle hold up and would Jordan Spieth win his third major of the year? Rory’s ankle was held up well as he finished -9 in 17th place. As for Jordan he had another magical week finishing in second place at -17 overtaking McIlroy as the number one golfer in the world and he broke Tiger Woods record total in major championships at 54 under par that is ridiculous. To say the least the game of golf is in great hands with those two, but this week belonged to Jason Day.
Jason Day has his Moment
Jason Day is one of the best golfers in the world, but there was something missing and that was a major title. It hadn’t been for lack of trying as in, 22 career major starts, he had seven top five finishes and ten top ten finishes with so many close calls; people began to wonder if the golf gods were ever going to be in his favor. This week he left no question whom the best golfer was setting the record for the best score in major championship history at 20 under par!
He put on a driving clinic striping down every fairway giving him great chances for birdie. He has stupid power on one of the par fives he drove it 383 leaving himself just a pitching wedge to the hole, it was jaw-dropping. It was very impressive the way he putted as well, on Saturday he recorded six straight threes propelling him to this record victory. He was able to do this with Spieth nipping at his heels the entire way; he just seemed in total control today and it was fun to watch!
This guy is one of the most popular golfers in the world and his play speaks for itself, but his attitude and personality is second to none and that’s why he is one of my favorites on and off the golf course. This will be the first of many the sky’s the limit for him now going to be fun to see where he takes this. Congrats, Mate well deserved!!!!
