Canada win cheers Day

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

QUEENS­LAN­DER Jason Day will head to next month’s PGA Cham­pi­onship with re­newed belief he can fi­nally break his ma­jor duck af­ter join­ing Aus­tralian golf roy­alty as a Cana­dian Open cham­pion.

Bounc­ing back in em­phatic fash­ion from his St An­drews heartache, Day birdied his last three holes to edge out Amer­i­can Bubba Wat­son by a shot at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Toronto. Day’s fast and fu­ri­ous fin­ish in a four- un­der- par 68 gave him a 72- hole win­ning to­tal of 17 un­der and came just six days af­ter fall­ing ag­o­nis­ingly short of a Bri­tish Open play­off by a shot. “To be able to close like that, it just gives me a lot more con­fi­dence go­ing into the rest of the sea­son,” Day said.
