Day will watch Ryder Cup from start to finish


ATLANTA – Jason Day, an Australian, isn’t necessarily rooting for either side in next week’s Ryder Cup, but he certainly has an interest.

On Wednesday at the Tour Championship, Day said he considered flying to Hazeltine National to attend the matches as a fan and added that the Ryder Cup is the only tournament he will watch from start to finish.

“I get to watch the other players sweat, and I can sit on my couch and watch it, which is fantastic,” Day said.

Day, who lives in Ohio and married an American, said he’d give the U.S. team a slight edge next week because of the home-course advantage and the relative inexperience of the European team, but he wouldn’t pick a favorite.

“It's going to be very close,” said the world No. 1. “It seems like Europe's gelled very, very nicely over the past years, and that's why they've kind of run away with it a little bit. It will be interesting, if America doesn't win, I wonder what's going to happen to that task force?”
