Ready or not, Jason Day will have his close-up on Sunday
HAVEN, Wis. -- Jordan Spieth will be in his pairing tomorrow, the final of the tournament. But the only thing that can stop Jason Day from winning the PGA Championship on Sunday is Jason Day.
"I haven't really looked at the leader board too much because I've just been too focused on what I need to do," Day said on Saturday night.
He's treating Whistling Straits like it owes him money. He's 15 under through three rounds; the last time the course hosted the Wanamaker Trophy, 11 under was good enough for the win.
Day's hitting pitching wedges into par-5s. What his irons are doing to the flagsticks is illegal in 15 states. He's sinking 20-footers with the nonchalance of a tap-in.
If any other golfer was in this position, tomorrow's award presentation would be an afterthought.
However, this is Jason Day we are talking about, master of the near-miss.
