Forever the bridesmaid, Jason Day would be forgiven for thinking the golfing Gods are having a laugh, solely at his expense.
With ten top-20 Major finishes since the 2010 US PGA Championship, he is once again poised to end his long wait for one of golf's top prizes after a classy start at Whistling Straits.
It could be argued that he is currently the best golfer never to have won a Major. He'll just be praying that he doesn't end up a Colin Montgomerie mark two.

There are so many fantastic golfers competing on the world's biggest stage, and the depth of talent just seems to grow every year. This makes Day's record all the more impressive. And he's at it again.
Before fierce thunderstorms halted proceedings, the Australian had completed 14 holes of his second round in five-under-par, for a -9 total. He co-leads the tournament with compatriot Matt Jones and will hope to claim outright leadership at the half-way stage by the time he finishes off this morning.
Barring a collapse, it looks likely that the world number five will be in the final group going into the third day.
With superstar Jordan Spieth safely in the clubhouse only three shots back, and so many other world-class golfers just waiting to pounce, Day knows just how tough it's going to be to get over the line. But he's been here so many times before.
Following his Open Championship disappointment, Day was quick to bounce back by winning the Canadian Open the very next week. This showed true class and a massive willingness to win. A true great will put even the biggest heartache behind him and this victory illustrated just how classy the man is.
The final 36-holes promise to be just as nail-biting as all three previous Major championships played in 2015. Day is once again on the cusp of greatness, and few could argue that he deserves it more than anybody else.
Given his experience, and still at such a young age, who's to say that if he does finally win a Major that he won't go on to win a few more.
Perhaps a maiden Major-victory will be the catalyst for this hugely talented player to challenge Rory and Jordan for the title of number one golfer in the world.
