Jason Day turned in a 1-under-par 37-34=71 for his opening round of the Hero World Challenge.
The Aussie has sat out since the TOUR Championship to allow injuries to his thumb and back time to heal. More specifically, he's been nursing a herniated disc. Today at Isleworth, Day hit 14 greens in regulation and converted four birdies, but he also squared a double bogey at the par-4 fourth hole and a bogey-4 at 15. He's always been a long hitter, so any loss of distance off the tee as a result of his injured back is mitigated with what he has in reserve strength. Dec 4 - 4:30 PM

On Tuesday, TigerWoods.com revealed the preliminary field for the Hero World Challenge on Dec. 4-7.

The tournament is migrating to a new home at Isleworth Golf & Country Club in Orlando, Florida. Tiger Woods remains host to 18 golfers, including himself. Ben Everill of the Australian Associated Press confirmed on Twitter that Jason Day is hopeful to return to competition at this money grab sprinkled with Official World Golf Rankings points. Day is resting and recharging after an injury-plagued season during which he finished 10th in the FedExCup standings.

Jason Day has decided not to compete in the Australian Open on Nov. 27-30.

That's over two months from now, but the Aussie is taking this time to recover after a PGA TOUR season that took a toll and then some. It's not unusual for him to sit out the last three months, but his focus will shift this time around. "I'm just trying to get healthy," he said last week. "I just want a healthy year where I can practice hard and get ready for tournaments and try and play the best I can without worrying about injuries in the back of my mind. I'm very encouraged with how I played this year with just 15 starts but I'm very motivated to get better for next season and really try and get to that No. 1 spot in the world. I feel like I've got the tools to get there. I just need to make sure that the body is right for me to win a lot more and achieve that goal. This offseason is very crucial for me just to make sure that the back, the thumb and my hips are all progressing the way I want them to be."

Jason Day carded a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the TOUR Championship final round.

The Aussie entered the week as an injury question mark, but ends the week as an exclamation mark. Starting the finale just three shots off the co-leaders, Day never got into true contention today. The big takeaway this week was his lack of big numbers, as he avoided putting a double bogey on his card all week. Day ended the week at 7-under 273 and ends the season with six top 10s, including a win in 15 events.
Sep 14 - 5:53 PM

Jason Day settled for an even-par 35-35=70 in his third round of the TOUR Championship.

The Aussie remained stagnant as his three birdies were offset by three bogeys during his third tour of East Lake. Surprisingly, his strokes gained: tee-to-green was -1.109 on the day while his flat stick kept him in contention. On the day, he rolled in six putts from outside of six feet. Even with the mediocrity today, Day sits at 6-under 204, and is still very much in the running.
Sep 13 - 6:10 PM

Jason Day answered his opening 67 at the TOUR Championship with another in today's second round to post 6-under 134, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It was vintage Day even though he's only 26 years of age. He hit just 10 greens in regulation, but limited the negative to one bogey, that a 4 at the par-3 18th hole. While it's probably the worst place you'd want the lone square to sit on your scorecard, he can still lean on the fact that he drilled home four birdies, including rolls from 16'1" and 12'7" at Nos. 5 and 14, respectively.
Sep 12 - 2:47 PM

Jason Day submitted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the TOUR Championship, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

Day quickly silenced the doubters with a birdie conversion from 29'11" at the par-4 first hole. It was his longest of the round, but he added four birdies, including respective rolls from 27'9" and 11'1" at Nos. 7 and 12. The Aussie also squared bogeys at the par-3 second and sixth holes, but gamers wouldn't have been too surprised if he signed for a score 10 swings higher. Congrats if you're on board at East Lake, but continue to hold your breath. It was last Friday when Day walked off Cherry Hills during his second round with a back injury.

Jason Day is a go for this week's TOUR Championship.

Anyone that's ever driven a vehicle knows that drivers in front of you at stoplights seem to occasionally prefer a different shade of green before hitting the accelerator. Coming off a back injury, Day probably belongs in that group reserved for the hesitant at East Lake this week. After knocking it around a few holes on Tuesday, he hit the range this morning. "It feels fine, just tight," he said about his back. "This is the real test," he added, referring to the full swings today. The Aussie had an MRI last Friday after which his trainer described the injury as "structural wear and tear." In a vacuum, Day is never a sleeper, but he's still a high-risk, potentially high-reward option for the finale of the FedExCup Playoffs.
Sep 10 - 6:14 PM

Jason Day withdrew from the BMW Championship last week with a back injury but will try and give it a go in the TOUR Championship on Thursday.

Day was on the grounds at East Lake on Tuesday testing the back, and didn't pull out of the tournament. That's the good news. The problem for gamers is what will happen if the 10th player in the FedExCup standings gets off to a poor start in conjunction with the back barking. With the other 28 players in the field assured to cash a check unless they withdraw, the Aussie becomes a huge risk.

Jason Day withdrew from the BMW Championship during his second round due to a back injury.

Sigh. Here we go again. Just when he was flashing consistently strong form, he's hit with another ailment. Day landed his approach on the green at the par-4 ninth hole before walking off Cherry Hills. He was birdie-free 3-over-par on the day and 3-over through 26 holes. The Aussie was the only golfer to record top 10s in the first two FedExCup Playoffs events. He arrived at the third leg south of Denver slotted seventh in points, so he'll advance to next week's finale in Atlanta. You know the drill now. Expect an update or two on his status before the scheduled opening round on Thursday, Sept. 11.
Sep 5 - 4:54 PM

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.
