Standing over a putt to win a major championship has to be a nerve-racking experience. But apparently it isn't the only thing that makes world No. 1 Jason Day nervous.
Day told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he was feeling "a little nervous" before throwing out the honorary first pitch at Saturday's matchup between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals.
“I just want to hit this area,” he said, circling his torso. “If I can hit this area, then they won’t have to move too much.”
Evidently Day, who is in Pittsburgh for next week's U.S. Open, isn't stressing over Oakmont's tough conditions too much.
He did however share a little insight on the course: "You really do have to stay patient and not try and force anything too much. Oakmont’s going to be a tough test for us and I’m looking forward to it.”
