The Players Championship 2019: Surging Jason Day with a real chance at $17.5m payday

Jason Day is confident his world-class putter will heat up for the final round of the $US12.5 million ($A17.5m) Players Championship as he looks to become just the second Australian to win multiple titles at TPC Sawgrass.

Steve Elkington is the only Australian with two Players Championship wins (1991, 1997) but 2016 Players champion Day gave himself a red-hot chance at victory at the US PGA Tour’s richest event with a solid third round on Saturday.

Day posted a four-under-par 68 to move to 12 under and three shots from 54-hole leader Jon Rahm — the Spanish world No.10 who soared to the top of the leaderboard with a 64.
