Jason Day has a few close calls at the Masters Tournament and he'll return this week for the 82nd edition of the event, hoping he can finally slip on that coveted green jacket.
Many say first-timers can't win at Augusta National but that narrative would have died if Day would have converted back in 2011. He was in solo second after 36 holes, tied for a share of second place at 54 holes and was right in the mix until Charl Schwartzel made a late Sunday charge to pass him. Day withdrew during R2 the following year with an ankle injury but got right back in contention in 2013 (solo lead thru R2, finished solo third). He'll have plenty of good course vibes but he will need to overcome some recent spotty iron play (negative SG:APPROACH in three straight starts). In his pre-tourney presser he said "I wasn't quite happy with how I was hitting it at the Match Play. I was launching it a little bit higher and spinning a little bit too much" ... "hopefully with a little bit of a change, that could spark something." Not a lot of confidence in the tee-to-green department but he remains one of the world's best putters. Apr 4 - 2:28 PM

Past champ and World No. 10 Jason Day makes final preparations for his eighth Arnold Palmer Invitational and heads out at 8:23 am ET on Thursday with Hideki Matsuyama and Tiger Woods. UPDATE: Day finished T22 on 5-under 283 (73-71-67-72).

The 30-year-old won here in 2016 as a 14/1 pre-tourney outright and was grouped with Matsuyama in Rounds 1 and 2 (LATE/early). He's a 12/1 outright this week, second only to Woods. The Aussie won the 2016 edition in wire-to-wire fashion by one (66-65-70-70) and is his only top 10 in seven visits. He does have three other top 25s, including T23 last year defending. Day is 4-for-4 on the season with four finishes of T11 or better, highlighted by a P1 at the Farmers two starts ago and a T2 at Pebble Beach in his most recent event five weeks ago. He leads the TOUR in consecutive top-25 finishes with 10 straight dating back to a T24 at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone. The Ohio resident also leads the TOUR in SG: Putting (1.861). Historically, he's not fared well when grouped with Woods. This will be his fifth event, all in Rounds 1 and 2, and has only made one cut (71st, 2015 Memorial).

Jason Day will not make the trip to this week's WGC-Mexico Championship, skipping the event to be with his mother during some of her health check-ups.

Day has two different reasons for skipping this week's big event. First he told AAP the following, "I'm going to take Mexico off. My mum is coming over here (to the US) to have scans, so I'm going to spend some time with her." That is a very valid reason, given her battles with health over the last 12 months. The Aussie also shared some news that he was dealing with a double ear infection and the flu which prevented him from prep work." The next scheduled event for Day is the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 12th.

World No. 10 Jason Day navigated a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, nudging one spot into a four-way T2 on 14-under 273, three in arrears of champion Ted Potter, Jr., who shot 69.

After opening with 69-65-69, the 30-year-old began T3, two adrift of co-leaders Potter, Jr and Dustin Johnson. Playing out of the penultimate group, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 2.038 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.568 tee-to-green. The Aussie carded five birdies at holes 2, 6, 8, 15 and 16, three from between 10 and 13 feet, squaring three bogeys at 5, 9 and 13. He recorded 1.600 putts per GIR and 3.621 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. The Ohio resident was chasing his 12th TOUR title in 215 career events, second this season in four starts and second straight, but settles for a 10th career runner-up. He improves to 9-for-9 at the AT&T with seven top 25s and five top 10s, second straight, and eclipses a previous-best T4 in 2015.
Feb 11 - 7:20 PM

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, World No. 10 Jason Day tacked on a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to reach 12-under 203, up two places to T3, two shy of 54-hole co-leaders Ted Potter, Jr. and Dustin Johnson.

The 30-year-old will play out of the penultimate group (with his amateur partner) in Round 4 and is going for his second straight win (P1, Farmers). Overall, he's chasing a 12th TOUR title in 215 career events, fourth in come-from-behind fashion and second straight. Beginning off No. 10 tee, the Aussie landed nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.530 strokes approaching-the-green. He squared three bogeys at holes 1, 11 and 14, outflanked by six circles at 2, 8, 10, 12, 15 and 18, four from between 16 and 43 feet. The Ohio resident posted 1.538 putts per GIR and 3.611 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.

Jason Day manicured a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, vaulting himself into the top 10 with a two-day tally of 9-under 134.

The Aussie squeezed out a 3-under 69 at Spyglass Hill during his opening round. He moved over to the easiest course in the rota (Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course) and made things look very easy. It's often a hot putter that excels during these low J-Day rounds but today he pelted 15 greens in regulation and kept a clean card despite 28 putts. I say despite 28 putts because he also holed out for a birdie at the par-5 12th so that was 28 putts over 17 holes. Playing his 32nd round at this event, this goes in the books as his third-best round here. The Aussie will now set his eyes on Pebble Beach Golf Links for the final two rounds. He's looking to pick up his first win at this event or perhaps settle a seventh top 15 in nine tries.
Feb 9 - 6:39 PM

Jason Day hits the road for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week looking for his second consecutive PGA Tour victory.

Day outlasted Alex Noren at the Farmers Insurance Open in six playoff holes, as the tournament spilled over into Monday before crowning a champion. He ranks third on the PGA Tour with 319.9 yards per drive, and he is 11th in Scoring Average (69.745). Despite his power off the tee, he is accurate, which is a deadly combination. Day is 27th in Driving Accuracy Percentage (66.67), hitting 112 of 168 possible fairways. He was fifth last season at Pebble Beach, derailed by a third-round 75. He is 11th or better in each of his past three at Pebble since a missed cut in 2014.
Feb 7 - 4:43 AM

Past champ and World No. 14 Jason Day authored a 2-under-par 32-38=70 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 10-under 278, matched two groups later by overnight leader Alex Noren, and then won on Monday with birdie-4 on the par-5 18th, the sixth hole of sudden death and first after the playoff resumed on Monday morning. UPDATE: Day bumps four places to 10th in OWGR.

The 30-year-old, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, bags his 11th TOUR title in 214 career events, first since the 2016 PLAYERS 33 starts ago, and improves to 2-1 in playoffs. It's his second Farmers victory in nine tries, joining a playoff win in 2015. After kicking off with 73, week-low 64 and 71, the Aussie began T5, three back. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he hit six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, gaining 3.014 tee-to-green. Day went out in bogey-free 4-under, circling holes 3, 6 (tied Noren for lead), 7 and 9, but came home in birdie-less 2-over, squaring 11 (3-putt from 32'8") and 15. He posted 1.700 putts per GIR and 1.765 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. In extra time, the duo matched birdie-4s on the first two tours of the 18th, routine pars at the par-3 16th, 2-putt pars at the 17th and birdie-4s again at 18. Back at the 18th on Monday, Day stiffed his third from 87 yards (fairway) to 18 inches for a kick-in, while Noren drinked his second.

Past champ and World No. 14 Jason Day bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open, dipping one spot on the live leaderboard to T7 on 8-under 208, three back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Alex Noren.

After opening in 73-64, the 2015 winner began T6, four back of 36-hole leader Ryan Palmer. He hit six (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.873 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.229 around-the-green. The 30-year-old squared three at 11, 12 and 14, slightly outpaced by four circles at 2, 4, 5 and 15, all from inside of nine feet. He recorded 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.018 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.
Jan 27 - 6:46 PM

Jason Day looked much healthier in round two of the Farmers Insurance Open, blitzing the North Course at Torrey Pines with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 34-30=64, the low round of the week so far to vault inside the top 10, moving up 108 spots on the live leaderboard at 7-under 137.

The Aussie made the pre-tournament headlines with a sore back that caused him to withdraw from the Wednesday pro-am. His back didn't look great on Thursday, either, as he was seen grimacing at times during his navigation of Torrey Pines South. His distances were also way off the mark at times, losing 1.752 strokes approaching-the-green when all was said and done. Day pulled a complete 180 today, pelting 14 greens in regulation after finding 10 (of 14) fairways. Playing his 28th round at the Farmers Insurance Open, this is a new personal best (at either course) for Day. The previous low was a 7-under 65 in R2 of the 2015 edition which he'd go on to win. Coincidentally, he also opened with a 1-over 73 that week.

Jason Day will be without his regular caddie as he makes his first start of 2018, this week at the Farmers Insurance Open. UPDATE: Jason Day was withdrawn from Wednesday's Pro-Am with a sore back, but is still in the field for the Farmers Insurance Open.

The Aussie has been out of action since a solo 5th-place finish back home at the Australian Open (late November). He continues to deal with off-the-course concerns. Most recently, his "normal" caddie, Luke Reardon cannot make the trip as he deals with getting his work visa. Normal is in quotes there since Day and his long-time caddie, Collin Swatton split near the end of last season. Instead, he will have Rika Batibasaga on the bag this week, a practice buddy who has played professionally on the Australasian and EuroPro Tours. Luckily, Day won't need much help around Torrey Pines as he owns a trio of top 10s here including a 2015 Farmers victory. His form is a complete mystery but gamers could certainly give him a look this week as a high risk, high reward type of selection.
Jan 23 - 3:53 PM

Jason Day defeated Captain's pick Charley Hoffman 2-and-1 in Match No. 2 of Sunday Singles at the Presidents Cup, moving the score to 15.0 points for Team USA versus 5.0 for the Internationals.

Day won seven holes versus five for Hoffman. Four of Day's wins were with pars, indicative of Hoffman's less-than-steady effort. Hoffman, paired with Chappell in Saturday afternoon four-balls, had a chance to clinch the Cup but the duo couldn't get it done, losing their match, leaving the US one point shy. Chappell and Hoffman were the first two Americans out on Sunday, both with a chance to clinch, but once again, neither could get it done, with Chappell gaining a half a point. Day, who only trailed for one hole in today's match, after the ninth, conjured one back-nine birdie at the 10th (from 14'10"), but followed with wins at 11 (par) and 12 (concession) to take command. Rookie Hoffman ends the week 1-2-0 while Day wraps at 1-3-1.

World No. 6 Jason Day orchestrated a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in the third round of the TOUR Championship to reach 6-under 204, up five spots to T6, four back of 54-hole clubhouse leaders Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele.

After kicking off in 69-67, the 29-year-old began T11 on 4-under, three adrift of a trio of overnight co-leaders. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.768 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 1.062 around-the-green. The Aussie raced out with four straight circles at Nos. 3-6 and added a final birdie at 9, taking some luster off with bogey-5 at 8 and a one-putt double bogey-6 at 16 after trouble off the tee. He registered 1.615 putts per GIR and 0.637 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts.

World No. 6 Jason Day authored a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to reach 4-under 69-67=136, up seven spots on the live leaderboard to T10, three back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Justin Thomas.

The 29-year-old is making his seventh appearance with three prior top 10s, including a best of T4 in 2014. Today's lap was his 23rd at East Lake GC and the seventh time he's shot 67, which is his low. The Aussie checked in at 16th in the FedExCup standings, beginning the Playoffs with T6-T25 and solo 4th last week at the BMW where he was T2 thru 54 holes. He conjured six (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.119 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.434 tee-to-green. The Columbus, Ohio, resident circled six at Nos. 3, 6, 8, 10, 16 and 18, taking some luster off with a hat-trick of bogeys at 12-14. He recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.292 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts.

Past champ and World No. 9 Jason Day patched together a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the BMW Championship to finish up on 16-under 268, down two places to solo 4th, a distant seven in arrears of wire-to-wire winner Marc Leishman (67), but climbs 13 spots to 15th in the FedExCup standings.

The Aussie was a wire-to-wire winner here in 2015 but couldn't catch his countryman. After opening in 64-65-70, he began T2 five back. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he kicked off with seven straight pars before a three-birdie train on holes 8-10. The 29-year-old gave two back at the par-3 11th (tee ball in the water), circled birdie-3s at 12, 15 and 16, but bogeyed each of the two back-nine par 5s. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.775 strokes around-the-green and 0.139 on-the-green. Day posted 1.545 putts per GIR, No. 1 for the week in that stat (1.452), and took 25 total putts. He had 95 total putts for the week, the lowest amount of any player this season. This is Day's 10th top-5 finish in 34 FEC Playoffs events which is the most all-time, separating from Dustin Johnson and Tiger Woods with nine each. He's opened the postseason in T6-T25-4.
