Yes that should be possible. Its about 700km of 2-lane roads all the way with ghat sections at: Dimbam and Honnavar. So even if you assume 50km/h as a average, it translates to about 14 hours of drive (You also need to account for breaks).

If you start at 8.30, you will reach Jog falls around 8 pm. (with breaks). Considering this is a rainy season, it may be tricky(visibility, road block due to tree fall) to take the ghat section at that time. I would suggest you to stay at Sagar and start early in the morning and reach Goa by noon. You can also visit Jog falls on the way.

A green and scenic route but with much less traffic.
Google Maps suggests to take the Sagar-Sirsi-Kumta route instead of the usual Sagar-Honnavar-Kumta route. I remember reading in the Bangalore-Goa thread that the Haveri-Sirsi-Kumta route in very good condition. Also it looks like the Sirsi kumta road is less winding compared to the Jog falls-Honnavar road. Any thoughts on this route?

I dont have a quantifiable impact. But yes in general traffic is lower. If he plans to break his journey at Sagar then this makes sense to explore. If not I would still vote for the conventional NH206/NH17.
