Day reaches final 30 after welcome comeback

Having won his first PGA Tour title in five years, 2023 will be seen as a successful year for Day, who is back inside the world’s top-25 players.

The Queenslander has struggled with injuries and a drop in form over recent years, but his performances in the last 12 months have indicated that he is a contender at the top level again.

Day’s sole victory came back in May, when he won the AT&T Byron Nelson by a shot, which was one of seven top-10 finishes for the Australian this season.

The 35-year-old – 226.00 to win the final tournament - had a mixed year in the Majors, missing the cut at both the US Open and PGA Championship, but finishing T2 at the Open Championship and T39 at the Masters.

His display at the BMW Championship suggests he is going to have to see his form improve very quickly if he is to challenge for the title at East Lake.

In a 50-man field, Day finished T45 at Olympia Fields despite an opening round 69. The former PGA champion finished on +7 after rounds of 74, 74 and 70 over the last three days.

Day flying the Aussie flag

Day will be the only Australian representative at the Tour Championship, after Cameron Davis missed out following his 40th-placed finish at the BMW Championship.

Davis – 151.00 to win the 2024 US Open – won his first PGA Tour event in 2021 and is looking to kick on having moved into the top-50 in the world rankings.

Fellow Aussie Adam Scott is currently ranked above Davis after a steady year, which includes top-40 finishes in three of the four Majors, but he didn’t qualify for the BMW Championship.

It’s three years since the 43-year-old last won on the PGA Tour, but finished his FedEx play-off season with a T7 finish at the recent Wyndham Championship.

Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, is 81.00 to win a second Green Jacket at Augusta in 2024.

Scheffler leads the way

World number Scottie Scheffler leads the way going into the final PGA tournament of the season and will start the Tour Championship on -10.

Viktor Hovland, following his victory at the BMW Championship, will start second on eight-under-par with Rory McIlroy a further shot back on -7.

Jon Rahm will begin the event in fourth, starting on -6, with American Lucas Glover – who won the recent Wyndham Championship - starting the week on five-under-par.

Day, ranked 25 in the FedEx Cup standings, will start on -1, nine shots behind the leader going into the opening round on Thursday.
