Jason Day has set his sights on chasing down Greg Norman's Australian record of 20 PGA Tour victories.
Despite a spate of injuries disrupting his career, the 30-year-old Day is ahead of schedule.
Two-time major winner Norman was 37 when he reached 11 US Tour titles, the number Day matched two weeks ago with his sudden-death playoff victory at Torrey Pines.
Having hit the reset button after a winless 2017 in which he lost the World No.1 ranking while dealing with a lung cancer diagnosis to mother Dening, a reinvigorated Day is ready to reel in the Shark.
"I think 11 (wins) are not enough. I think it's a very small number and I'm not being disrespectful to anyone else," Day said at the Pebble Beach Pro Am on Wednesday.
"Anything above 20 is good, and somewhere in the 30s would be a really good career."
Only fellow Australians Adam Scott (13), Bruce Crampton (14), Jim Ferrier (18) and Norman hold more US Tour wins than Day.
But having won eight tournaments in a 15-month span between 2015 and 2016, Day's hot streaks give him a red-hot chance.
"I feel like if I can stay motivated and keep my body healthy, then I've got a good shot at accomplishing my goals, as long as I want it enough," Day said.
"If I don't want it, then it's not going to happen. So the biggest thing for me is desire.
"I have desire issues all the time; it's just in our human nature to wake up some days and (lack motivation)."
Despite blowing several stellar chances to win last year, including a second major title at the US PGA Championship, Day has been trending back to top form since July.
Starting at the Open Championship, Day's worst result is a tie for 27th in 11 starts worldwide during a stretch featuring four top 10s and a win at Torrey Pines.
The Ohio-based Queenslander is hoping to strike while the iron is hot at this week's Pebble Beach Pro Am, where he owns four top-six results from eight previous starts.
Day has had solid chances to win the past three Pebble Beach events and squandered the 36-hole lead last year with a horror third round dropping him to an eventual tie for fifth.
"I just enjoy the atmosphere up here; when you come in with a great attitude, usually that helps to perform well," Day said.
