8. Jason Day
Jason Day has had a rollercoaster year with the health of his mother taking over top billing for the 29-year-old Aussie. His recent form seems to be trending in the right direction, but has he shown enough to prove he can put four rounds together and win a second major championship?
Day has only played at Quail Hollow twice — 22nd and 9th place finishes — but the weather forecast for the week is projected to favor a bomber of Day’s ilk. He lands at No. 8 on our list due to fitting that bill, but far enough down because his game is surrounded by question marks.
