Jason Day won the players after reuniting with his Red Spider Limited Itsy Bitsy Spider putter that he first put into play at the RBC Heritage and after his performance with it this week at TPC Sawgrass it is likely to become a permanent fixture in the Players champ’s bag. The putter, first shown to tour staff at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera in February, has all the characteristics of the Itsy Bitsy used by Day for the better part of the last 18 months, except this one incorporates the color of the Redback Spider, which is found in Day’s homeland of Australia. The putter also does not have a sightline on top, at Day’s request. Day made several big putts Sunday, including one from nearly 15 feet for par at the seventh and another from almost 17 feet for birdie on the 12th to widen his cushion.
