Day returned to Spider Itsy Bitsy during the CJ Cup after finishing 30th on Tour last season in Strokes Gained: Putting. From 2015-18, Day ranked first, second and sixth in the statistical category during the four-year stretch.
While the PGA Tour doesn’t record Strokes Gained: Putting statistics during the Asia Swing, Day finished the tournament ranked 11th in putts per green in regulation — a promising start for someone who hasn’t visited the winner’s circle since the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship.
“I think overall, I had the driver, the irons and the putter working, which was nice,” Day said.
In the last few years, Day has used different variations of TaylorMade’s Spider putter, including a red version that played a role in his 2016 Players Championship victory. Day most recently tried a Spider X “Chalk” that lasted four starts.
