Overnight leader and World No. 1 Jason Day orchestrated a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in today's final round of THE PLAYERS for a 72-hole aggregate of 15-under 273, good for a four-shot victory over Kevin Chappell and his 10th PGA TOUR title in his 181st career start and seventh in his last 17 events.
This is Day's third win of the season on just 10 starts and second in wire-to-wire fashion, having also claimed the Arnold Palmer in that manner. It was his 12th career 54-hole lead/co-lead and has now converted six times, including his last five straight. The Aussie began the finale on 14-under (63-66-73), four clear of three players, including playing competitor Hideki Matsuyama, who shot 73. Similar to R3, he bobbled on his first half, stumbling to a birdie-less two-bogey 38, but similar to his R3 effort again, came home without a bogey, circling holes 10, 12 and 16. The 28-year-old did not drop a single shot on the back-nine at TPC Sawgrass all week and became just the fourth player since 1970 to win wire-to-wire twice in one season, first since Tiger Woods in 2002.

Second-round leader Jason Day conjured up a 1-over-par 39-34=73 in today's third round of THE PLAYERS for a 54-hole tally of 14-under 202, good for a four-shot lead over three players.

Day was the 18-hole leader after opening with a course-record-tying low 63, and took two days to complete his second-round 66 for a 36-hole tournament record on 15-under 129, four clear of Shane Lowry. He squared a 3-putt bogey-4 at the third, his first bogey of the week (39th hole), and doubled the sixth and the eighth, the former a 4-putt from 17'10". The Aussie got two back with birdies at 7 and 9 to turn 3-over and two more with birdie-4s at the 11th (from 3'8") and the 16th, though missing eagle from 6'5". He made three par putts from between six and 10 feet, but the most memorable par-save came at the 15th, where he pitched-in from 53'1" away. After 24 putts in R1/R2, Day needed 32 in R3 on an extremely difficult course setup.

First-round leader Jason Day fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of THE PLAYERS and at 15-under 129, sets a new 36-hole tournament record, supplanting the previous mark of 14-under 63-67=130 held by countryman Greg Norman (1994).

The World No. 1 was one of 33 that were stranded on Friday due to darkness. He was bogey-free 5-under thru 14 holes of his second frame and 14-under total when the horn sounded. When play resumed on Saturday morning, the 28-year-old picked up right where he left off, rolling in a 15-footer on the par-4 15th for his sixth birdie of the round and third straight. He missed birdie from 10'1" at the par-5 16th, two-putted for par on the 17th from 53'3", and scrambled for a closing par on the 18th for a four-shot cushion heading to R3, also a record. The Aussie is blemish-free thru 36 holes and leads in total birdies (15) and SGP with a cumulative 5.497, including 2.482 in R2 at last check.
May 14 - 10:28 AM

The second round of THE PLAYERS was suspended at 7:57 p.m. ET due to darkness with players due back in position at 9:15 a.m. Saturday. UPDATE: The second round resumed as scheduled at 9:15 a.m. Saturday.

An earlier delay of 2 hours, 2 minutes due to lightning in the area was the culprit on Friday at TPC Sawgrass. Thirty-three of 71 in the afternoon wave were stranded (one WD), with overnight pace-setter Jason Day still the leader on the course, now at 14-under total. He was bogey-free 5-under thru 14 holes of his second frame when the horn sounded. When play resumes, the World No. 1 will be hitting his second to the par-4 15th from 107 yards away in the fairway. The third round is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. with threesomes off split tees.
May 13 - 8:30 PM

Jason Day fired a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-32=63 during the opening round of THE PLAYERS, matching the course record and taking control of the early lead.

You could tell it was going to be a special day when the Aussie rolled in a 30'2" birdie bomb at the par-4 10th hole to kick off his round. He followed that up with back-to-back circles at the 11th and 12th holes. He added four more putts made from outside 10 feet by round's end. Day was not playing out of the short stuff for most of the day, as he split just eight (of 14) fairways but still managed to land 15 greens in regulation. As good as his putting was (+2.726 SGP), his approach play was even better. With this 9-under 63, Day joins Martin Kaymer, Roberto Castro, Greg Norman, and Fred Couples as co-course record holders. His previous low at TPC Sawgrass was a 4-under 68 (R4/2011, R4/2013).
May 12 - 1:41 PM

Jason Day closed out his week at the Zurich Classic with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to finish the weather-shortened event at 13-under 203.

The World No. 1 would love to have a fourth round this week where he could instill fear near the top of the leaderboard as a proven closer. Instead, the weather did not cooperate this week in NOLA and Day will have to settle for a top 5 after three rounds of play. On the week, Day split just 26 (of 42) fairways, ranking T65 in the field. Despite the lack of accuracy his first-ranked distance allowed him shorter clubs in on the way toward landing 42 greens in regulation (T8 in the field) on the week. Day finished T4 here last year and this will likely go in the books as his second consecutive top 5 at TPC Louisiana.
May 2 - 10:53 AM

World No. 1 and Zurich Ambassador Jason Day crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the two-day second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 7-under 137, five back of 36-hole leader Brian Stuard.

Day was one of 76 stranded on Friday due to darkness. He was 2-under thru 10 holes, 5-under total when play was ditched. The Aussie returned on Saturday morning and added birdies on 11 and 13 from 13'7" and 6'9", respectively, to complete his scoring. He's up 19 spots on the live leaderboard to T9 with his blemish-free loop a nice bounce back from the first round where he squared four, including back-to-backs to end on a sour note. Thru 36 holes, the 28-year-old is currently T8 in greens in regulation at 77.78 percent (28/36) but T86 in putts per GIR at 1.786.
Apr 30 - 10:53 AM

Jason Day signed for a 3-under-par 38-31=69 during the first round at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Day made it look easy, tee-to-green, but his flat stick was boom or bust. He opened on the back nine and the big boom came in the form of a 59'6" birdie bomb on the par-4 16th hole, a putt that would have rolled at least five feet past if he hadn't of jammed in in the back of the cup. On the flip side he missed a four-pack of par-saving attempts from inside eight feet, all coming on the front nine (his second nine). Entering the week ranked third in strokes gained putting, gamers should expect a nice bounce back on the greens as the week progresses.
Apr 28 - 6:37 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day is in Avondale, Louisiana, for his fourth appearance in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Aussie chased back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer and Match Play with somewhat disappointing outings at the Masters (T10), and T23 at the RBC Heritage, where he co-led thru 36 holes but a third-round 79 knocked him out of the running. Day is the FedExCup leader in the field (No. 2) and is the pre-tourney outright fave. Thru 24 events on the season, the book-maker favorite has won only ONCE (Spieth at the 32-man Hyundai TOC), but other than fellow Zurich Ambassador and defending champ Justin Rose, the 28-year-old is the clearly the headliner in NOLA. He's 2-for-3 at TPC Louisiana and returned last season to post T4 after a five-year hiatus.

World No. 1 Jason Day rebounded for a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in today's final round of the RBC Heritage to conclude his fifth appearance on 1-under 283.

Day co-led thru 36 holes after opening in 67-69, but a 79 on Saturday knocked him out of the running. He had converted his last two 36-hole leads/co-leads (2016 Arnold Palmer, 2015 BMW Championship), but this week wasn't to be. The 28-year-old responded with a four-birdie one-bogey effort in the finale to bump 15 spots to T25 with play still in progress. After mustering just six greens in regulation in R3, he hit 13 on Sunday posting 2.471 strokes gained: tee-to-green and 2.216 strokes gained: putting at last glance. The Aussie's four par breakers traveled between six and 13 feet with his lone blemish a failed scramble at the par-3 14th. He's not in the published field at next week's Valero Texas Open.
Apr 17 - 2:58 PM

World No. 1 and overnight tri-leader Jason Day crashed and burned to an 8-over-par 38-41=79 in today's third round of the RBC Heritage for a three-day total of 2-over 215, plummeting 39 places on the leaderboard to T40.

Seeking his third win of the season and third in four starts, the Aussie began his third frame in a three-way T1 with playing partner Kevin Chappell (who shot 75), and Charley Hoffman. The trio were one clear of three players, including the now 54-hole leader Luke Donald. Day erased two front-nine birdies on the par 5s, with a double bogey-6 and eight bogeys, including four straight on holes 9-12. The 28-year-old, now nine adrift, has no chance of winning the title, so it will be interesting to see how he responds to his 79, which is a career worst on TOUR in weekend rounds. Day found just six greens in regulation and posted -5.439 in strokes gained: total.
Apr 16 - 6:40 PM

Jason Day cruised toward a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round of the RBC Heritage, joining Kevin Chappell with the early clubhouse lead at 6-under 136.

The World No. 1 kicked off today's round on the back nine and landed eight greens on his outward nine but wasn't finding himself in scoring position on those GIRs. He managed to roll one in from 10'5" on the par-4 18th to avoid going birdie-free and make the turn at even-par. Day added two more circles before finding OB on his par-5 fifth tee shot. He settled for a bogey but bounced back immediately with the fourth birdie of the day, splashing one home from 20'4" on the par-4 sixth hole. The Aussie is in a familiar position at the top and his ball-striking still has room for improvement over the weekend.
Apr 15 - 1:08 PM

Jason Day dealt an opening round, 4-under-par 34-33=67 while taking on Harbour Town Golf Links at the RBC Heritage.

The Aussie had a new putter in his bag today and there was no signs of a transition period. He saved par from 10'1" on the par-4 third and then again from 12'5" at the fourth hole. Day added a 15-footer for birdie on the par-3 seventh and dropped in a 27'1" birdie bomb on the 11th. Overall, the new flat stick gained 2.619 strokes over the field. His tee-to-green game was astute, as usual. The World No. 1 is in a familiar position through day one (just one stroke off the lead), and should remain near the top as the week progresses.
Apr 14 - 5:53 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day sleepwalked to a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in today's final round of the Masters for a four-day total of 1-over 289, down five spots on the leaderboard into a five-way T10.

Day was 8-under on the front nine this week and 9-over on the back and that about sums up his sixth Masters, which ended six in arrears to champion Danny Willett. He began Sunday's play on even-par (T5), three back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. The 28-year-old, looking for his third win in as many starts, mustered only five (of 14) fairways and circled two birdie-4s on just nine greens in regulation. He squared bogeys on Nos. 5, 10 and 18, each on failed scrambles. The Aussie's tournament totals show: 1 eagle, 13 birdies, 13 bogeys and 1 triple-bogey.
Apr 10 - 9:54 PM

Jason Day crafted a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of 80th Masters to reach the three-quarter mark on even-par 216, up 10 places on the live leaderboard to T5. UPDATE: With play completed, Day is in a three-way T5, three shy of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

After playing the back nine in 8-over the first two rounds, Day finally gained some measure of retribution with an even-par 36 on Saturday. He began Moving Day on T15 after opening his sixth Masters in 72-73. The 28-year-old, entering the week off back-to-back wins in his last two starts, piped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation posting a tidy 1.61 putts per GIR. He squared bogeys on Nos. 1, 12 and 16 but outpaced them with birdies on 2, 9, 13 and 14, including a remarkable birdie from the trees on the par-4 14th, dropping a bomb from 69 feet, which came right after canning a 15-footer for a '4' on the par-5 13th.
