I really didn’t set out to jinx Jason Day, who withdrew yesterday from the BMW Championshipwith a back injury. I really hate it when I look at a golfer’s swing and point out things that may spell physical trouble down the line – and then it happens.
I didn’t even know about this until the Big Toilet sent me a text yesterday, as I was occupied with other matters. But yes, Jason Day’s hard-ripping swing action has come home to roost in the form of a back injury.
I’ve wanted to take a look at Jason Day’s swing for some time as he is a young and talented power swinger on the PGA Tour, but recent injury problems with his thumb kept him out of play for a bit, and it wasn’t logical to look at his swing while he nursed an injury anyways.
He seems to have recovered, and I found a slow motion face-on swing of his, and my initial suspicions were confirmed – Day will likely run into lower back and/or leading knee issues as he gets older, if not sooner.
