Australian Jason Day celebrated his return to world number one with his second WGC Match Play crown on Sunday, beating Louis Oosthuizen 5 and 4 in the title match.
Day, was assured of regaining the world number one ranking on Saturday when he reached the semi-finals as American Jordan Spieth was eliminated in the round of 16.
And on Sunday, five days after fearing a bad back might force him out after his opening match on Wednesday, Day completed an unbeaten week at Austin Country Club in Texas with a gritty 1-up semi-final win over defending champion Rory McIlroy followed by his victory over Oosthuizen.
“To be able to play the way I did from tee to green and then on top of it make tough matches and hit the clutch shots has been fantastic,” said Day.
Day joined Tiger Woods and fellow Australian Geoff Ogilvy as multiple Match Play winners.
