Australian Jason Day won WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship on Sunday after a 23-hole duel with Victor Dubuisson who drew level after having been two down with two to play in normal time. Then twice in the extra holes Dubuisson kept the match alive by making up and down chips from seemingly unplayable lies in the Arizona desert. But Day finally holed a four foot birdie with his TaylorMade Ghost Monte Carlo putter to claim the Walter Hagen Cup ahead of 63 of the world’s best professional golfers.
Day uses all TaylorMade equipment and Adidas apparel and footwear. The tournament saw him hit a series of huge drives in the thin Arizona air with his SLDR driver and some excellent fairway shots with his Tour Preferred irons, using the Tour Preferred X golf ball. The win gives Day an impressive 14-3 career match play record at the event.
This was Day’s second US PGA Tour win and his second victory worldwide in the last three months, having previously won the 2013 ISPS Handa World Cup in November. It moves Day to eleventh in the FedExCup standings and fourth in the Official World Golf Ranking, his highest-ever ranking.
