Jason Day now has three of the 12 longest putts on the PGA Tour this season. Coming into The Barclays, Day had made putts of 75 feet and 74 feet. Now he’s made a 71-footer, and it might be the most impressive of all.
Day trailed Patrick Reed’s lead of 10 under on Sunday in the final round at Bethpage Black by three strokes before banging home this insanely difficult putt that broke about 20 feet to the left. Here’s a look at how it all went down.
He climbed to within two before Reed re-extended the lead to three just a few minutes later.
Here’s a reminder that Day is having probably the best putting season in recent PGA Tour history. Since strokes gained were invented in the early 2000s, nobody has gained a stroke on the field per round with his putter. Day is set to do just that.
Especially if he keeps making putts like this.
