Leading by a stroke, Day's 7-iron hit the flagstick on the 230-yard, par-3 17th hole, setting up a 3-foot birdie putt and a two-shot victory over Aaron Wise and Nick Watney at the Wells Fargo Championship.
Other finishers included: Rory McIlroy (71 on Sunday), 281; Rickie Fowler (73), 282; and Tiger Woods (74), 286. He was tied for 24th at the Farmers Insurance Open, missed the cut at the Genesis, finished 12th at the Honda Classic, tied for second at the Valspar Championship and tied for fifth at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Unfortunately, Day incredibly played those tough last three holes in two-under to post the winning score at 12-under.
He won the Players back in 2016 and now has to be one of the favorites to win it again. It's just a matter of making sure I get the right speed for those greens because (they are) going to be a little bit quicker than here.
Day, the 2015 PGA Championship victor, held off Americans Aaron Wise and Nick Watney with a final-round two-under par 69 to finish 72 holes on 12-under 272 for a two-stroke victory at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina.
He concluded: "I felt as if my game improved as the week went on - hopefully I can build upon that next week, tighten a few areas up".
