For us golf fans as we enjoy the great athletes of our time, we have always had something of an obsession for the next "great one. After Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy started putting his stamp on the game over the past two years, who can be the new Tiger, the player best suited to dominate the game the way Woods did.
When we wait for the 2013 season, we still don't forget to scan the TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB Irons looking for the next great one. Jason Day is promising. Just a few weeks short of his 25th birthday, Day has already won over $10 million in a professional career that began in 2006. He posted his first and only victory in the 2010 HP Byron Nelson Classic.
We say Jason Day could be Golf's Next Superstar for the following reasons:
He possesses plenty of distance off the tee, averaging 309.2 yards on the measured holes, going with TaylorMade Tour Preferred Irons (3-5) and R9 TP Irons. That ranks him seventh on the PGA Tour. 47 percent of his measured drives were at least 300 yards, the eighth-best total on the Tour.
He’s pretty darn accurate with approach shots 200 yards and longer, finishing 35th this season in that category. He’s even better from 250-275 yards, finishing first there, with an average putt left of 48 feet, seven inches.
Day is one of those guys who isn’t afraid to go low. His final-round scoring average this year was 69.73, ninth-best on the Tour with TaylorMade MB Irons for sale. He also has a birdie or better conversion rate of 32.49, meaning he’s hit 551 greens in regulation and made 179 birdies or better.
Day was born in Beaudesert, Queensland and started playing golf just after age six. He became a junior member at the Beaudesert cheap golf clubs, where he was allowed to play six holes a day. He missed some time in the spring because of an ankle injury and missed some more time in the summer because of the birth of his first child, Dash.
But he’s come back from both of those and played very well at Las Vegas a few weeks ago. He made 10 birdies in a 13-hole stretch of the third round, and then birdied seven of the first nine holes in the final round. Through the early part of his career, Day has been the kind of player who has gotten on hot streaks and ridden them as long as he could.
All signs are pointing to the fact that his game is in a position to get hot again. He’s put together a pair of 67s at the McGladrey Classic this week and goes into the weekend tied for taylormade rbz irons for sale. Wouldn’t it be great to have a talented player like Jason Day battling it out on a weekly basis with Rory McIlroy?
