Jason Day blows away field at Barclays and moves closer to No. 1

EDISON, N.J. — Jason Day powered and putted his way to another blowout against a world-class field Sunday at The Barclays.

Fresh off his first major at the PGA Championship, Day pulled away early and poured it on with three long birdie putts on the back nine at Plainfield for an 8-under 62 and a six-shot victory.

Day finished at 19-under 261. He won two weeks ago at Whistling Straits with a record to par at 20-under 268.

The victory moves the 27-year-old Australian to the top of the FedEx Cup, assuring he will be among the top five with a clear shot at the $10 million bonus.

And while he stays at No. 3 in the world, Day now is in the picture with Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth for golf supremacy.
