Indications are that Jason Day, the 17-year-old Queenslander who has taken amateur golf by storm in recent months, will gain a start at the Holden New Zealand Open a week after he plays the Heineken Classic.

Day, who today added the Victorian Junior Masters to his amazing list of titles over the last twelve months won that event by eleven shots, his score of 278 finishing well ahead of the runner up Eric Chun from Cronulla.

Day finished as the leading amateur at the Australian Open and the Australian MasterCard Masters and is sure to be a great attraction at Gulf Harbour. Day won the New Zealand Under 19 title in September at the Akarana Golf Club in Auckland by four shots.

Still under suspension by the Australian Golf Union from representing his country until the end of April, it seems that Day has more than enough on his plate in the meantime. Day was banned from representing Australia due to his non particiapation in one of the National Trial events, the Lake Macquarie Amateur Championship next week, preferring instead to honour a committment to play the NEC Master of the Amateurs event in Melbourne.
