Jason Day still hopes to make an impact

Australian Jason Day admits his career is at a crossroads as he prepares to put himself back on the map at this weekend's CJ Cup in Las Vegas.

Day is 4001.00 to win the tournament, his first since 2018, and he needed a sponsor's invite to feature in the 78-man event.

Injury takes its toll

The former world number one has struggled mentally in recent year and an ongoing back injury has added to his woes.

However, Day has refused to throw in the towel, and he is confident he can play for another decade if he can get his preparations right.

Day has not played in almost two months, but he has been working in the gym and trying to juggle a busy personal life after becoming a father for a fourth time earlier this year.

I've got to take it easy and I've got to be smart about it.

Watney enjoys taking "big step"

The Queenslander says he has had to adjust his preparations, but he believes he can start to climb the rankings sooner rather than later.

He told the West Australian: “I'm a different player than what I was five years ago. I'm a different person. I have different priorities”

Day having to adapt

"I can't work as hard as I used to just because of my body and I'm OK with that. So I've got to somehow be able to kind of learn as I go along and try and adapt as best I can.

"But I've got to take it easy and I've got to be smart about it, because, if I'm not smart about it, then it could be short-lived."

A star-studded field heads to Las Vegas this weekend, with Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth all planning to tee off on Thursday.
