Jason Day, the world’s top-ranked golfer, joins The Vertical Podcast with JJ Redick on the eve of the 2016 United States Open tournament. Day talks to Redick about the mental preparation it takes to prepare for a tournament and how that parallels with preparing for NBA regular season and playoff games. Day discusses his magnificent run as the world’s No. 1 golfer, how his motivation to stay at the top of the world rankings has been undeterred. Day discusses his humble beginnings as young man in Australia, about playing for award money more than tournament victories as a young player on the tour.
