Let’s not forget the vertigo that cruelled his chances at the US Open, the back and thumb injuries that he saddled to other high finishes in majors. That not only wrapped up his European Tour card, it paid just over $300,000 (211,332 pounds).
He posted a 20-under 193 total with one round left in the third of the PGA Tour’s four FedExCup playoff events. Third-place Scott Piercy wound up one shot behind Berger after a 70. If Day wins the FedEx Cup this week he has a strong case of being Player of the Year.
