COMMENT: How Jason Day missed out on a major victory in 2016

Jason Day was easily the best player across all four majors in 2016. So how did he not win any of them?

daybaltusrolOf all the golfers who played in all four majors in 2016, Jason Day was the best by a long way. In fact he played all four rounds of all four majors in 12 strokes less than his nearest rival, Jordan Spieth. With that sort of form, and with the expectation on him after his first major victory in 2015, you would have thought Day would have won at least one more major in 2016.

A combination of a wayward driver and some bad luck meant Day didn’t win any majors in 2016 and I take a closer look at why in my latest article for GolfLink:

That finish included that incredible 72nd hole 2-iron that almost got him into a playoff with eventual winner Jimmy Walker. Had Day gone on to win, there may have been a new plaque inserted into the 18th fairway at Baltusrol.

Few golfers use a 2-iron these days let alone strike one as purely as that to win – I mean almost win – a major.
