Canada win cheers Day
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.
