Day and Ogilvy notch up good performances at the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Jason Day has finished tied for second with Geoff Ogilvy at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Charlie Hoffman’s 9-under 62 was enough to win the tournament by five shots as Day couldn’t hang on to the lead he had held for most of the tournament.
Day is in a rich vein of form right now which is stunning considering his battle with illness and sinus issues. He is easily Australia’s best golfer at the minute and the second spot has propelled him into 4th position in the FedEx Cup standings. It should be enough to see him play the final playoff tournament in a few weeks for some serious cash.
Ten of the 13 Australian golfers who began the FedEx Cup playoffs have finished in the Top-70 and qualified for the next tournament with four Aussies finishing in the Top-10 this week; Jason Day (T2), Geoff Ogilvy (T2), Adam Scott (T5) and John Senden (8). Michael Sim finished tied for 11th.
Geoff Ogilvy has been overshadowed by Day’s golf but he is coming good at the end of the year. He now sits 9th in the Fed Ex Cup standings, well within the Top-30 needed to progress to the final tournament in a few weeks time.
