Jason Day triumphs at World Cup

2013 11 Daytrophy

Jason Day ended a tough couple of weeks on a high by capturing both individual and team titles at the ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf.


Just a week after losing eight members of his family in Typhoon Haiyan in the Phillipines, Jason Day won the individual title by two shots from Thomas Bjorn, and the team competition with fellow Australian Adam Scott at Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

It was not such good news for the Scottish contingent though as Martin Laird and Stephen Gallacher both failed to set the heather alight down under, finishing with an aggregate score for the week of eight-over-par.
"All the hard work and dedication that I have put into my game over the last five or ten years is paying off. It's taken me a while to get my second win as a pro, and it couldn't be more fitting with Scotty by my side" - Jason Day

In contrast, Jason Day continued his good form throughout the weekend and extended his overnight lead by a further shot to claim Australia's fifth World Cup title.

Jason Day collected a total of $1.5 million for the week and he was delighted to get his hands on his first trophy for three years.

After his win, Jason Day said: “It was a complete honour to win here at Royal Melbourne. To win in front of the Melbourne fans who are so passionate about their sport was an amazing feeling.

“It feels great. I just really don't know what to think right now. All the hard work and dedication that I have put into my game over the last five or ten years is paying off. It's taken me a while to get my second win as a pro, and it couldn't be more fitting with Scotty by my side winning the World Cup here in Melbourne.

Jason Day wins as Scots disappoint


The team of Martin Laird and Stephen Gallacher looked as though it had potential at the start of the week and a quick start by Laird left him sitting in a tie for third place after the first day. Gallacher never really got going at any point throughout the week though and Laird faded as the week went on leaving the Scottish team 25 shots off  Jason Day and Adam Scott's winning score of 17-under-par.
