Brendan Parath of SB Nation Writes:
“When Day has it working, he’s the best player in the game. He may not be as sexy or popular a name as Spieth and Rory. But he hits it just as far as Rory and is among the best in the world around and on the green, ranking No. 1 in strokes gained putting on the PGA Tour this year.”
