Jason Day won’t rush back into golf

World No.1 Jason Day is prepared to take it slow with his recovery from a back injury.

Day hasn’t played a round of golf since September, and missed the BMW and season-ending Tour Championships due to back issues.

He was crowned Australia's International Player of the Year at Tuesday night's Greg Norman Medal, despite again missing the home summer with the same back complaint.

"I've just got to understand that I'm in it for the long run," Day said on accepting the Greg Norman Medal via video link from Ohio.

"These things have to take time and I understand that when it comes to injuries not to push myself too much."

And the 29-year-old is yet to publicly announce a date when we can expect to see him back playing regularly again, despite saying on Tuesday night that the body was "coming along nicely”.
