Jay told his coach, George Pinnell, “it was not an easy putt, but I felt I made a good stroke, but it just slid by. I have a little bit of a bitter/sweet feeling about my finish. I felt I could win the event, but I am pleased with my play.” Pinnell told Jay, “look, you have put yourself in a position to win 3 time’s in your rookie year. Your goal should be to be patient and keep putting yourself into a position where you will have a chance to win.” Pinnell went on to tell his talented player, “you will win when it is your time. It will come, don’t force it. Keep putting yourself in a good position and your time will present itself to you.”

Jay’s finish put him 14th on the Japan PGA Tour Money List with 2010 earnings of $337,614.00. Jay outstanding play has him 16th in scoring with a 70.72 Scoring Average. Jay is 6th in GIR with a 68.04% and 14th in Driving Distance with an average of 293.71.
