Jason Day is hoping he can capitalise on a return to form as the PGA Tour's Fall series moves to the McGladrey Classic in St Simons Island, Georgia on Thursday.

The Australian was runner-up at the 2011 Masters and US Open but had struggled this season until an outstanding start to his final round helped him to fourth place at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open two weeks ago.

Day, currently 27th in the world rankings having broken into the top 10 last year, is hoping his travails are behind him for the year and said: "This year's been very tough on me.

"With the injuries and obviously with the birth of my first child, which has been a positive thing on my life, it took time away from the golf course.

"It was like a broken puzzle, pretty much. Over these last couple of months I've been able to actually get back to practising, get back to the normal way that I prepared for an event last year.

"I'm looking forward to finishing up the year strong. I want to finish up strong going into next year."
