Jason Day admits that he has worked harder than ever on his game this year as he looks to continue his stellar form in this week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship.
The 26-year-old claimed the year’s first World Golf Championship with a stunning victory over Victor Dubuisson in the Accenture Match Play Championship.
It was his second success on the PGA Tour but first in nearly four years as he outlasted the Frenchman over 23 holes in the final.
The Australian is now fourth in the world rankings and he believes that his success is down to a total dedication to the sport and to becoming the best player that he can.
“I have never been so focused in my life on competing and playing well than I have been this year,” he said. “I’ve put in a lot of work on the golf course and I’ve put in a lot of work off the golf course on my body, everything.”
The Queenslander is recognised as one of the top talents in the game and he has shone in the four majors over the past few years, with six
top-10 finishes since 2010.
He had a great chance to win the Masters last year but fell away over the final few holes to finish third as compatriot Adam Scott claimed the Green Jacket.
The Ohio resident will be back at Augusta in April to try and claim his first major but he told reporters that it is never as easy to win tournaments as Tiger woods has made it look in his career.
“You guys have been blessed by seeing Tiger Woods win for so many years,” he added. “People in general think it’s easy to win. It’s hard. It’s not easy to go out there and just do it.”
