For all the accolades and admiration Jason Day receives for his superior driving and ball striking, his putting over the course of the last eight months has been what has elevated him above the nine fields he has defeated. This week at the WGC-Dell Match Play, Day had another great week on the greens, holing 61.1% of his putts from 10-15 feet.
His make percentage entering the week from that distance: 31.1%.
