19-22 November 2020  
Jason Day will be looking to clinch his maiden RSM Classic title when he competes at Sea Island Golf Club. 
The Australian star is a former number one in the World Golf Ranking, having first achieved the ranking in September 2015.
Day, who is currently ranked 42nd in the world, has lifted the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship twice. 
The Queensland-born player has also won a golf major having clinched the PGA Championship in 2015.

With his 2016 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship win, Day joined Tiger Woods and Geoff Ogilvy as the only multiple winners of the WGC Match Play.
Day won The Challenge: Japan Skins over Woods, Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama in October 2019.
However, Day has struggled with injuries since 2019 as he was originally a captain's pick for the International team of the 2019 Presidents Cup, but he withdrew with a back injury. 
A neck injury also forced the 2015 Queensland Sports Star of the Year to withdraw while in contention at the 2020 CJ Cup last month.

Day recently discussed his swing as he looks to make a comeback to competitive golf at the RSM Classic. 
“The feel of swinging well is the drive on 18, and then anytime that I get the weak one to the right or kind of the smother draw, that’s kind of in between patterns," Day said. 
"I’m just not really pleased with it. It’s just a work in progress, I’ve got to be patient with it. 
"Right now I’m in contention, I’m one back going into tomorrow’s round, so it’s positive in regards to how I feel like I’m playing," he added. 
"I think the golf swing is holding up quite nicely and the body is, too.”
