WITB: Jason Day, BMW Championship
Jason Day topped off a fantastic few weeks with victory at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club, Chicago.
The win means that Day has jumped to World No. 1 for the first time in his career, replacing Rory McIlroy at the top.
It’s been kind of a dream run for me, Day said.
This week has been a bit of a whirlwind, especially with how I started the week, shooting 18-under par through the first two rounds and then on top of it, the last two days were very, very emotional for me, very hard to sleep at night, knowing that I had the chance to get to No. 1.
And obviously I talk about it freely now, but it’s been very, very difficult for me to try and downplay getting to No. 1 because I’ve really wanted to reach this goal for a very long time now.
Day’s win is the first for TaylorMade’s new M1 driver, and the seventh for TaylorMade’s Tour Preffered EF wedges.
