Jason Day Australia's Best

Australia’s Jason Day has produced a stunning birdie blitz over the last three holes to win the 2015 RBC Canadian Open.

Starting the final round in the second to last group, Day combined power golf with sublime putting to win the tournament by one shot from Bubba Watson, and take his fourth win on the USPGA Tour.

Having come so close to making a playoff in last week’s British Open, Day’s victory and the US$1.05M prize money, will go a long way to erase the memory of the putt he left agonisingly short on the 72nd hole at St Andrews as he bid to win his first major title.

Day’s enormous drive of over 350 metres on the par 4 17th at the spectacular Glen Abbey GC in Oakville, Ontario, left him just 60 metres short of the green, and a smart up and down gave him a one shot lead with one hole to play.

His unconventional birdie on the last, having found a bunker off the tee, was equally as impressive. With no option but to lay up from the sand, Day played a solid wedge to 20 feet which left him with a tricky downhill putt. The 27 year old Queenslander was not going to make the same mistake two weeks running and his third birdie in a row effectively shut out the chasing pack.
