– Day had rounds of 68-67-66-67 and became the first player in history to finish a major at 20 under

– Jordan Spieth came in second place, and became the 4th player in the modern era to finish in the top-5 in all four majors in a single season (Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler are the other three)
