How He Hit That: Jason Day's freewheeling driver

February 09, 2015

Jason Day's raw talent has always been evident. The athletic Australian has three runner-up finishes in majors and won last year's WGC World Match Play, but his biggest battle has been staying healthy. A thumb injury cost him three months last season, and a lingering back injury ruined his FedEx Cup.

Fully healthy in San Diego, he parred the second hole of a playoff to beat J.B. Holmes, Harris English and Scott Stallings and claim his third PGA Tour title.
