Jason Day could only muster an even-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and ends the week at 10-under 274.
While the top-10 finish is nice for most players, the Aussie had his sights set on something a little bigger. He was off and running with two birdies on his first four holes, but had to wait all the way until the 18th hole for a third birdie. In the mean time, he squared a bogey on the par-4 10th and a double bogey on the par-4 12th holes. Still in great shape in terms of the FedExCup, he will take his game to the BMW Championship later this week. Sep 1 - 5:38 PM

Jason Day settled for a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is tied for third at 10-under 203 with 18 holes to play.

The 36-hole co-leader was solid early, picking up four birdies from inside eight feet on his first 13 holes at TPC Boston without a blemish. He would struggle to get it to the clubhouse, squaring bogeys at the 14th and 15th holes. The best news for Day is that he is only trails Russell Henley by two strokes. Beginning the week seventh in the FedExCup standings, it appears that the Aussie is poised to contend for the FEC title.
Aug 31 - 5:46 PM

Jason Day posted a 3-under-par 31-37=68 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, reaching the midpoint in 8-under 134, good for a share of the overnight lead with Ryan Palmer.

Day continues to struggle with his irons. While he split 12 (of 14) fairways at TPC Boston today, he landed only 11 greens in regulation. He swallowed three bogeys, all on his inward nine, but counterbalanced with six birdies, including five going out. The set featured conversions from 38'9" and 15'2" at the sixth and seventh holes, respectively. He also drilled home a bogey try from 10'11" at the par-4 12th where his approach resulted in a penalty for an unplayable lie.
Aug 30 - 6:23 PM

Jason Day fashioned a bogey-free, 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

When he is feeling good, he is one of the most dangerous investments on the PGA TOUR. With last week's T2 at The Barclays, he's assured a place at the TOUR Championship, but at seventh in the FedExCup standings, he's still outside the preferred bubble of the top five. Today at TPC Boston, Day split nine (of 14) fairways, but hit only nine greens in regulation. As his scorecard illustrates, he got up and down every time and was perfect on 17 tries inside 18 feet, including a par save from 12'9" at the par-3 11th. His longest conversion of the round dropped for birdie at the par-3 eighth hole.
Aug 29 - 1:58 PM

Jason Day submitted a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of The Barclays to share second place with Stuart Appleby and Cameron Tringale at 12-under 272.

The Aussie picked up six birdies but suffered three bogeys on his tour of Ridgewood CC. Several birdies stand out, including his 16'1" effort on the par-4 first and his 11'8" birdie at the par-4 seventh. The flat stick was the key to his success this week, ranking second in strokes gained and first in putting average. He entered the week 34th in the FedExCup standings and departs sevenths.
Aug 24 - 6:17 PM

Jason Day battled for 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of The Barclays and is tied with Jim Furyk for the 54-hole lead at 9-under 204.

Day bagged seven birdies but faced his share of problems at Ridgewood CC. He lost a ball off the tee at the par-5 13th hole, settling for a double bogey, and also squared bogeys at the par-4 seventh and par-5 17th holes. All of his birdies fell from outside of nine feet, but none were longer than the 56'10" bomb on the par-5 third. It's no surprise that he gained over four strokes with the putter and leads the tournament in that category. He will try and pick up his second PGA TOUR victory of the season in Sunday's finale.
Aug 23 - 5:20 PM

Jason Day played like the talent that we know he can be in today's second round of The Barclays after which he signed for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-32=64.

Day split 10 (of 14) fairways and go up and down four times while finding seven birdies along the way. This included on each of the three par 5s. Three of his conversions measured 12-16 feet, but his longest of the day disappeared for par from 20'3" at the par-4 14th hole. At 6-under 136, the Aussie sits just two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
Aug 22 - 5:30 PM

Jason Day settled for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the PGA Championship and is tied for fifth at 10-under 203 with 18 holes to play.

The Aussie spread four birdies and two bogeys across Valhalla GC on Saturday, with all of his circles on the scorecard coming from inside 10 feet. While he found 14 GIR, he lost over a stroke with the flat stick. Perhaps the highlight of hid afternoon was a par save on the par-4 second hole. He drove his ball across a river and into a hazard, and then rolled up his pants and waded across the river before chopping out barefoot and eventually saving par. Day has enjoyed several close calls at major championships the last few years, so the pressure on Sunday afternoon will be familiar.
Aug 9 - 7:23 PM

Jason Day crafted a 6-under-par 30-35=65 in his second round of the PGA Championship, good for low round of the day.

He reached the midpoint in 8-under 134 and sits only one stroke off the 36-hole lead. For a guy that can't avoid injuries and illnesses and recently modified his grip, he's showing some world-class moxie at Valhalla. Day leads the field with 29 greens in regulation. He ranked fourth in distance off the tee. Today's round featured an eagle from 14'1" at the par-5 seventh hole and five birdies, including a round-long 17'1" at the par-4 second. Only a bogey-5 at 15 stained a sparkling card.
Aug 8 - 8:30 PM

Jason Day opened the PGA Championship with a 2-under-par 34-35=69, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

When he's feeling well, he's performed, so it's not surprising. The hard part, at least for gamers, is knowing when he's feeling well. Day landed 15 greens in regulation at Valhalla today, but converted just thrice for birdie. He fanned on four tries inside 10 feet, including for par from 62 inches at the par-4 16th where he squared his only bogey or worse of the round. His only notable hole-out was a three-yarder for par from the fringe at the par-4 first.
Aug 7 - 3:15 PM

Jason Day withdrew from the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational during his third round, citing dizziness.

Day logged two holes on Saturday morning before calling it quits. He opened bogey-par and sat 6-over through 38 holes. His inclusion in next week's PGA Championship is a topic to monitor closely over the coming days.
Aug 2 - 11:00 AM

Jason Day signed for a 4-over-par 38-34=74 following his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

This was to be expected when he admitted that the pain in his left thumb forced a change in his grip. As a result, Day split six (of 14) fairways and hit only six greens in regulation. A walk-off birdie from 13'9" at the par-4 18th hole did little to ease the sting of a terrible round, but he's guaranteed FedExCup points and earnings at the conclusion of 72 holes. However, a fair question is if he'll be physically healthy enough to finish the tournament.
Jul 31 - 6:40 PM

Jason Day continues to deal with an injury to his left thumb upon arrival at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

All bets should be off the Aussie this week as he's forced to play through pain that has dogged him for months. He pieced together a T58 at The Open Championship, but was seen at least once cringing due to the discomfort after making contact in the rough. "I'm still trying to be able to practice fully," he said. "I'm getting in practice but not at 100 percent and it's just really really frustrating." While he stated that an MRI on Monday revealed improvement in the thumb, he's making a significant modification this week. "I am trying to change my grip quickly and it feels awful right now, so I'm not to sure how I'm going to go this week," Day added. "Normally I come in a lot more prepared, but it is what it is. When you have an injury you have to work around it. I'm just trying to see where the game is for next week. And try to work on the positioning of the hands to bring less pain."

Jason Day submitted a 1-over-par 35-38=73 for his opening round of The Open Championship.

Day hasn't played since missing the cut on the number at the Quicken Loans National where he was paired with Tiger Woods. The Aussie withdrew early from The Greenbrier Classic due to a recurrence of the injury to his left thumb. Well, he was shown in visible pain at least once today. After escaping from the thick stuff left of a fairway, he let go of the iron and reached for his thumb. Day soldiered on, but he totaled only eight (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation. He outpaced three birdies with four bogeys. Continue to avoid in all formats.
Jul 17 - 3:33 PM

Jason Day is listed in the published field of next week's Open Championship.

Given the uncertainty of his injured left thumb, it wouldn't be responsible to suggest that the Aussie is good to go next week. Even if he had a sterling track record in this major (he doesn't) or at Royal Liverpool (where he's making his debut), Day wouldn't be a prudent choice if you're contending for a league title.
