JASON DAY returns to the scene of his one and only US PGA Tour victory this week and has strong backing to repeat his golfing success.
Day won the Byron Nelson Championship in 2010 and has top 10 finishes in his other two starts in this event at the TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas.
This year he is back in top form, contending for so long at the Masters before some late bogeys saw him finish alone in third.
Day has had a very solid start in 2013, making the cut in each of his starts to push his consecutive cuts made to 14 – fifth best on TOUR. Day added a top-20 finish at THE PLAYERS last week to his four previous top-25 finishes.
Marc Leishman is another Aussie in good form this year and will be joined by a number of fellow countrymen including Stuart Appleby, Steven Bowditch, Greg Chalmers, Scott Gardiner, Nathan Green, Nick O’Hern, Rod Pampling, Cameron Percy, Alistair Presnell and John Senden.
Jason Dufner is the defending champion and other featured contenders include Louis Oosthuizen, Keegan Bradley and Matt Kuchar.
