One day you are the Tiger Woods and the very next day is seen wandering in the woods.
Jason Day and Rory McIlroy know all this too well.
Both Rory McIlroy and Jason Day ruled the golf world at a time, each had power and an intimidating force that left players gasping in their wake. Both were the champions in the Major, and also, they were the No. 1 player in the world for a long period of time.
And now? At the present time both are searching and waiting for their better days and coming back to form after spending a complete year with losses and full of injuries, various kinds of personal challenges and equipment changes.
This year, both McIlroy and Day are winless. If a mathematician is asked to calculate the odds on that happening? Then the numbers are here, on the PGA tour they made 28 starts this year 2017 and accumulated nine top-10 finishes. In his better days that are in the year 2014, he had eight top-10s in line in 10 starts, and this included three wins and three seconds.
At present, McIlroy is busy in defending his FedExCup champion title, grabbing the bonus of $10 million and hardware with his last win during his 2016 Tour Championship. In the Playoffs of the last year, this was his second win pointed to a huge 2017.
But the rib injury made him suffer in January. He missed stretches of time and the sad part is that he did not get right even after coming back. And the same is true with Day as well. He never found a good rhythm in the start-and-stop season. And, on the top of that, he changed the golf clubs and golf balls struggled on the greens for points.
