Jason Day has revealed he has left TaylorMade and become a free agent in the equipment world as he rocked up to Torrey Pines this week with a very mixed bag of golf clubs.
Day, 33, lined up ahead of this week's Farmers Insurance Open - a tournament he has won twice before in 2015 and 2018 - with a new PING G425 driver in his bag, along with other new additions such as Mizuno JPX 921 Tour irons, Artisan Prototype wedges, an Odyssey White Hot 2-Ball putter and a Bridgestone XS golf ball.
The 33-year-old Australian has endured a lacklustre run of form in recent years, much of that down to a troublesome back injury, along with coming to terms with his mother's battle with cancer.
However, the current World No.43 is looking to change his fortunes fast and even a return to the coveted World No.1 spot that he held for a cumulative total of 51 weeks - the last of which was back in early 2017.
"All I have to do is just go out and play... there are no excuses," said Day, who has not won on the PGA Tour since May 2018.
"Playing bad golf is frustrating, being a competitor and not living up to what you think you should be living up to is very frustrating.
"This is my 14th season on the PGA Tour now, I know that a career is long, but I'm trying to do everything I possibly can to get back to where I should be, and I feel that's No.1 in the world.
"If I look in the past, it's depressing, so I don't want to do that. If I look to the future, it gives me anxiety, so I don't want to do that. I can only control what I can do right now."
Day also confirmed he has started working with a new golf coach in Chris Como, a man who once worked with Tiger Woods between 2014 and 2017.
"I feel like things are progressing nicely with my swing, but I just really have to be very patient with the technical aspect of it," said Day, a 12-time PGA Tour winner.
"We're trying to get better hip movement, we're going to get a little bit deeper on the backswing in regard to the hip motion, and I'm trying to get a little bit more turn in the upper body. Last year was kind of coming over the top of it just to kind of alleviate some of the back pain.
"Right now, if I do it correctly, it doesn't hurt my back, which is tremendous. For the longest time I was swaying a little bit, getting a little bit too much tilt in my upper body, and that was forcing my right hip to sway out and then I'd get too lateral going forward. Then I would crunch down to try and lift the ball up, and crunch down my back and I just did it over time and over and over again, and then sooner or later it would just kind of flare up and go out."
