Jason Day claimed his seventh U.S. PGA Tour victory on Sunday to take over the world's number one ranking, becoming the third player in as many weeks to capture golf's coveted top spot. The 27-year-old Australian went wire-to-wire, closing with his second straight two-under 69 to win by six strokes at the BMW Championship, the third of four tournaments in the FedEx Cup playoffs.
"All I want to do is win," said Day, who has won four of his last six tournaments, including his first major at last month's PGA Championship.
Day began his final round with a six-shot lead over a star-studded pack that included Rory McIlroy, who Day toppled from the number one spot, and U.S. Open and Masters winner Jordan Spieth - who was ranked second going into the event after trading the top spot with McIlroy.
Several players tried to make a charge at Day on Sunday but the Queensland native was not going to wilt. He held them off by staying out of trouble and making sure he maintained his aggressive approach around the greens.
Day becomes the youngest Aussie to reach number one and the third in history behind Greg Norman and Adam Scott.
It was also Day's fifth win of 2015 as he joins Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh as the only players in the last 20 years to win at least that many in a season.
