Day fit for Tour Championship

Australia’s Jason Day has declared himself fit for this week’s season-ending Tour Championship at the East Lake Golf Club.

The 26-year-old has suffered with injuries for much of the year but currently lay in 10th place on the FedEx Cup rankings, largely thanks to his maiden World Golf Championship event, the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, in February this year.

The three-time major runner-up played just 27 holes at the BMW Championship last week before withdrawing halfway through his second round at Cherry Hills Country Club before withdrawing.

After successfully playing nine holes at East Lake on Tuesday, the Aussie confirmed that he will take his place in the Tour Championship field.

“My preparation isn’t what I would like it to be and that is a little frustrating but I will be ready to give it a crack come Thursday,” Day said.

“There are some issues with the back I have to take care of but they can wait till Monday and the off-season. Right now I am focussed and determined to win the FedEx Cup.”
