Day wins WGC Dell Match Play to solidify new number one ranking
Mar 30, 2016 Jason Day recently continued his astonishing streak with an emphatic victory at the WGC-Dell Match Play in Texas.
The Australian dusted South African Louis Oosthuizen 5&4 in the afternoon final at Austin Country Club to clinch his sixth victory in his past 13 tournaments.
Day, who sank a 12-foot par putt at the final hole to beat defending champion Rory McIlroy one-up in a morning semi-final, was already assured of regaining his world number one ranking from American Jordan Spieth.
Day’s victory, his ninth on the PGA Tour, was his second in three years. He also made it four wins in five weeks for Australian players on the PGA Tour, after Adam Scott won twice in Florida at the Honda Classic and WGC-Cadillac Championship.
Day’s hot streak stretches back to last July, when he missed out on a spot in the British Open by one stroke at St. Andrews.
