The golf world has not seen anything yet from Jason Day even after he aced the Players Championship on Monday. Day’s performance and success have prompted comparisons to great golf players. Day, however, said that he would like to make a name for himself through his own ways.
At only 28 years old, Day already has a good list of 10 PGA titles to his name yet admitted that this is “not enough” for him especially when compared with the world’s best golf players such as Tiger Woods.
ABC News said that Day said after his victory at TPC Sawgrass that the number of titles he has is “not a lot”.
He added, “I want to be able to be looked back on … [as] one of the greats of the game and if I have the opportunity to do that, I’m going to try my best.
Day said that he believes he has the chance to that now, to try his best to “leave my footprint in this game that has given me so much”.
The golfer from Queensland is eyeing at least one spot in the hall of fame in the sport of golf. This is even if Day is still not qualified for admission until he is 50 years old.
Day’s first major win at PGA Championship 2015 coupled with his Players Championship win has already satisfied the minimum requirements for the hall of fame. Jason Day has admitted that he is already entertaining this thought.
Day said that he checked the criteria about a month or two ago and thought that he “might be able to sneak my way into the hall of fame one day”.
Jason Day admits to becoming “addicted” at improving himself, New York Times reported. He also added that his accomplishments will not only get his name into the hall of fame. He hopes that he can “smash that out of the water” and that he doesn’t “really need to think about it”.
