Jason Day is eager to bounce back from his US Open disappointment at this week’s Travelers Championship.
The Australian was woeful at Erin Hills after two disastrous rounds of 79 and 75 to miss the cut by nine strokes. This was despite Day indicating that he felt he prepared so well for the US Open.
“I felt like it was my best preparation going into a major,” the 29-year-old told AAP.
“So to not be there on the weekend was a disappointment, but the Travelers is an event I’ve enjoyed playing and I have some good results at TPC River Highlands.
“There’s a high-quality PGA Tour field this week and it will be a great test of where my game’s at.”
The good results Day refers to at the Travelers Championship are a T18 and T27 and he will no doubt be keen to improve on that come Sunday.
Standing in Day’s way is a high-class field that includes major winners Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, as well as last week’s US Open runner-up Brian Harmon.
