US Open 2011 Scores: Why Jason Day is Another Name to Keep an Eye On
Jason Day Could be the Next Phil Mickelson
Jason Day is one of many golfers who has put forth an outstanding performance in the 2011 US Open that nobody will remember.
He may finish with a double digit stroke deficit, but taking on Congressional at the US Open and coming away with a -8 score is no easy task.
Jason Day is only 23 years old. His stellar play in the final two rounds could suggest a rivalry between he and Rory McIlroy could be brewing.
They are around the same age, and it seems as though this may not be the only 1-2 finish in a major for them. While this major in particular wasn't a competition at all, it is safe to say the two have a closer matchup lurking in their immediate future.
The era of Tiger dominance appears to have come to a close. If Rory McIlroy is to assume the Tiger Woods role, it seems as though Jason Day could capably step into the Phil Mickelson role.
Lee Westwood and McIlroy can't kick start a legitimate rivalry, due to their gap in age. It seems as though Day vs. McIlroy could be a compelling storyline for many years to come.
