Jason Day (pictured) achieved his dream with his fifth victory of the season in the FedEx Cup event in Chicago. Day, 27, triumphed by six shots in Chicago to join Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh as the only players in the last 20 years to win at least five times in a season.

The win sees Day surpass Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth at the top of the world rankings to become the third Australian to reach the top spot after Greg Norman and Adam Scott.

The Tour Championship, starting on Thursday, is next in Day’s sights, and he is in the driving seat to scoop the FedEx Cup.

The top five in the FedEx Cup standings control their own destiny this week as the PGA Tour season comes down to the final 30 players in the Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta.

A win for any of Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Henrik Stenson or Bubba Watson will ensure they take home the $10m bonus on offer - the rest of the field are still in there pitching but the maths required for those lower down the list understandably gets increasingly complex with number 30 Harris English needing something akin to a minor a miracle.

Local player Rory McIlroy will no doubt be involved this week-end especially if he can get the putter going.

Undoubtedly fresher than all of his counterparts following his enforced mid-summer lay-off with ruptured ankle ligaments, his long game since his comeback has been quite sublime and it has only been the low conversion rate on the greens that has held him back now those injury woes are behind him.

McIlroy finished T2 here 12 months ago behind Billy Horschel and admitted in his post-round interview that he was very much mentally fatigued - the opposite is the case on this occasion and surely the final piece of the puzzle will be a little tweak with the putter.

FedEx Tip : Henrik Stenson to win this week and top the money list.
