Jason Day could not finish the CJ CUP tournament due to injury

During the CJ CUP tournament, Jason day again had problems with his back, which did not prevent the former World ranking leader from reaching the final round on the sixth line of the standings. Jason had a long-awaited chance to win his thirteenth PGA TOUR title, but fate decreed otherwise.

Before going on the tee on the final day of the tournament, day had a good workout on the range and at first did not pay attention to the slight discomfort in the neck area. When Jason went to the putting green, he felt a sharp click, and the right side of his neck literally jammed. Day didn’t have time for any more procedures, so he decided to just go out on the tee and rely on luck.

On the first hole, Jason broke a couple of strokes and got three pluses, but the Australian still went to the next hole, where he again failed to properly execute the eprouch. As a result, the 32-year-old golfer decided to stop trying so as not to aggravate the injury. This is the eleventh time in day’s career that he had to stop playing in a tournament due to an injury.

“My back was pinched and sore throughout the week, so I guess I tried too hard to fight it and pulled my neck as a result,” Jason explained to reporters. “I hope everything works out and I can come back next week.” I had a great swing, but I didn’t have a few good putts. Such things are unpleasant in any situation, but it is especially offensive when you had a chance to win.”

European Tour: Scottish Championship, the results. Bright triumph of Adrian Otega

Adrian Otaegui got off to a great start at the Scottish Championship, where the Spaniard scored ten cons in the opening round. But Adrian spent the next two days much less effectively, and by the final day, his gap to Matt Wallace, who took the sole lead, grew to four strokes. In the middle of his performance, Adrian produced a phenomenal series of eleven holes, where he entered eight birdies on his scorecard, finishing the Scottish stage of the Euro tour at minus 23.

Wallace, who played just one stroke better than the pair on the final day, settled for a solitary second place and led the English Quartet in the standings behind the champion. Again, Aaron Rai performed well in Scotland, finishing in third place.

“To be honest, I didn’t have much hope this morning,” Otegi admitted. – I just wanted to go out and perform well, to show the best possible score. If I’d been told in the morning that I’d hit 63, I wouldn’t have believed it. But everything went just fine. I performed very well and felt great. I was very focused and made some good putts.”

Note that this is Adrian’s third triumph in the Euro Tour, but he has not previously won in the stroke play format. Otegi has established himself as a match expert and won trophies at the Paul Lawrie Match Play and Belgian Knockout tournaments.
