Day starts hunting next Tour victory

Jason Day returns to action this week following a successful end to his 2013 campaign heralded by his victory in the individual competition at the ISPS HANDA World Cup. The 26 year-old Queenslander makes his 2014 season debut at Torrey Pines this week – one of ten Australians in the field. Day, who finished his time in Australia at the Emirates Australian Open where he finished sixth, is keen to add to his sole PGA Tour victory which came at the HP Byron Nelson event in 2010. His ISPS Handa World Cup victory was not a regular PGA Tour event. &apos&aposLast year was really encouraging but at the same time it was super motivating to do even better,&apos&apos Day told AAP at Torrey Pines. &apos&aposTo finally see myself break through after such a long time without winning was a real boost and reaffirmed what I believed; that I can win tournaments.” Despite not winning in 2013, Day posted another brilliant year at the Major Championships, finishing second to Justin Rose at the U.S Open and third behind Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera at the Masters in April. &apos&aposA successful year is reaching all of your goals and last year I reached the majority of them except for getting a win on the US Tour,&apos&apos he said.
