Carding a seven-under 64 in the second round, the American shot three birdies before the turn on Friday, followed by another three on the back nine, impressing the spectators with an eagle on the par-5 15th hole.
"My last hole-in-one was at Turning Stone in 2008, so I've had a bit of a dry spell", Day said after his round. If the hole-in-one was lucky, the eagle was inch-perfect execution. Day also won a vehicle and, not long after signing his card, he made a decision to donate that to the foundation to pay for another full scholarship. The following year, he won his second World Golf Championship, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship. "Seeing the last two days, I know I still have it in myself to be able to hit the correct shots and go out there and try and win".
Starting the day two back of Leishman, who opened with a nine-under 62, Day bounced back from a sloppy start featuring two bogeys with three birdies in his last four holes on the front side, before picking up an additional three shots on the inward half.
Leishman already has 18 birdies in 36 holes at Conway Farms, where the scoring average was a shade under 69 through two rounds. "That's why earlier I said I'm going to donate that auto back to help another student because I am in a fortunate position and being able to not only impact one person but be able to impact another person's life, to be able to get them to go through college as well is huge". "But those (ball-striking) statistics aren't great", Day said.
It hasn't been easy for everyone, particularly defending championDustin Johnson.
Patrick Cantlay extended his remarkable run this season with a 65, leaving him alone in fourth place but six shots behind. He finished bogey-bogey by taking two chips to get on the 17th green and hitting into the water on the 18th.
The Northern Irishman needs a top-four finish to reach the Tour Championship, the final Tour event of the season. Second-placed Thomas also carded 70 to fall 11 strokes behind.
