Day breaks PGA Tour win drought

Day breaks PGA Tour win drought

It took six extra holes, but Jason Day finally won the Farmers Insurance Open over Alex Noren with a birdie on the par-5 18th hole. I know previous year wasn't the greatest season for me.

Day hit a number of clutch shots in overtime, including the 113-yard wedge into the 18th green to set up a tieing birdie on the last hole played on Sunday before the playoff was suspended due to darkness.

"It has been a long time coming", said Day, who battled a back injury at the start of the week and missed the pre-tournament Pro-Am. Day made birdie on the first hole played Monday to win his first title since the 2016 PLAYERS Championship.

The Swede was seeking his maiden PGA Tour victory. It was the first time he went through 72 holes on the PGA tour in over two years.

It was Day's fourth consecutive birdie on Torrey Pines' par-5 finishing hole in the playoff.

He was disappointed to give two shots back with a double-bogey at the 12th, where he needed four shots to reach the green.

"This is what I play for, so I'm excited", said Noren.

Day joked that they could have continued to play, that all that was needed was some vehicle headlights along the fairway. In some sports (i.e. the volatile ones such as golf and baseball), entry percentage matters more than in other, more consistent ones (e.g. basketball).

EasyJet has set itself a target that a fifth of all new pilots recruited should be female by 2020, up from 6% in 2015 and 13% now. Elsewhere, at the BBC , six male presenters have agreed to take pay cuts to their salaries to combat the gender pay gap.


After Palmer departed, Day looked destined to lose the playoff after scuffing wide to the rough on the second playoff hole. The trio finished regulation tied at 10-under 278.

Asked about the delay on the 72 hole, Holmes was unapologetic.

Woods' Sunday score matched his highest of his four trips around Torrey Pines.

"This is something new for me to be able to go through a playoff and come back the next day".
