Day's sensational run of form has seen him move clear of McIlroy and American Jordan Spieth, who won the opening two majors of the season and challenged strongly in the other two.

He had started the fourth round with a six-shot advantage, but was unable to pull further clear after a succession of regulation pars.

It was broken with a birdie on the eighth, but he dropped a shot immediately at the next. Birdies on the 16th and 18th sealed his victory after Berger got to within four shots.

It has been a remarkable year for Day, who had threatened for some time to make a major breakthrough.

He led the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay only to suffer a recurrence of a vertigo problem, bravely battling on to finish behind Spieth.

But stunning play in the latter part of the season, including a record 20-under par tally in winning the PGA title at Whistling Straits has seen him amply rewarded.

Day is the 19th player to earn the top spot since the rankings were introduced and the third Australian after Greg Norman and Adam Scott.
