Another week, another Australian wins on the PGA Tour. Ok, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing this year but after big expectations for 2010, finally the Aussies are kicking into gear. This week our winner is Queenslander, Jason Day.
See video highlights below
Jason Day’s two stroke victory at the Byron Nelson Championship victory was unexpected. In 2007 he became the youngest winner in a PGA Tour sanctioned event and expectations were high.
He has steadily improved each year since but has battled form and health most of the year. He almost withdrew from the tournament this week with stomach issues and unlike Adam Scott’s win last week, anyone who expected this win is lying.
Arguably more surprising was the form of Mark Hensby. His final round was disappointing but to see his name on the leaderboard all weekend was a pleasant sight.
One more thing: Day has questionable taste. The former Australian amateur champ has said the food he misses most when away from Australia is McDonalds and his favourite beer is Bud Lite.
