Jason Day's withdrawal from this week's RBC Heritage stems from continued discomfort in his left thumb.
Day ended a six-week break at the Masters following his victory at the Match Play due to the injury. He tied for 20th after surviving the cut on the number. He'll now rest for another three weeks before returning to competition at THE PLAYERS on May 8-11. "I think it's all good but after having to miss so long last time I didn't want to take any unnecessary risks," he said. "I am confident it won't be a long term issue." Apr 15 - 1:25 PM

Jason Day has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

He shared 20th place at the Masters in what was his first start since winning the Match Play due to an injured left thumb. Day has logged only four starts this season, so he seems destined to land at the membership minimum of 15. Yet, he's currently 19th in the FedExCup standings.

Jason Day crafted a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Masters and is the first man in the clubhouse at 2-over 218.

The Aussie suffered his first of two blemishes at the par-4 first hole, then bounced back with a birdie at the par-5 second. He added birdies at the par-4 ninth, par-5 13th and par-5 15th to go with 13 pars before dropping his second shot at the par-4 18th to end the day. Day will need plenty of help to find himself within contention in the finale, but he did his part by firing a sub-par round on moving day.

Jason Day signed for a 3-over-par 37-38=75 following his opening round of the Masters.

Finding the short grass off the tee isn't necessarily critical at Augusta National, but he split only six (of 14) fairways, an aggregate that doesn't bode well long-term. Day also found just 10 greens in regulation and converted two birdies, but a bogey-bogey-double bogey-bogey run beginning at the eighth hole was potentially dooming. This was his first sanctioned action since winning the Match Play seven weeks ago. The Aussie sought treatment for an injured left thumb and played with his wrist bandaged today. Expect a better result on Friday.

Jason Day will, indeed, return to competition at this week's Masters.

Since winning the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, Day withdrew early from the WGC-Cadillac Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational due to an injury to his left thumb. He's been treating the digit with "heavy-duty anti-inflammatories" and received a cortisone shot a couple of weeks ago that has helped him turned the corner for this week. "It’s just so I know that when I’m hitting it, I don’t actually have to flinch at the ball because I know it was hurting through impact," he said. "At Bay Hill, I was steering it through the impact zone and that just doesn’t work against the best players in the world. So I decided to pull out, ready for Augusta and ... it feels great." The timing is outstanding given his record at Augusta National: T2 in 2011; solo third in 2013. "It’s my favorite tournament," he added "Hopefully I can go all the way this year — I’m definitely 100 per cent ready to go mentally."

In an update on Golf Channel, Todd Lewis provides detail on why Jason Day withdrew from this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational as well as a plan for the Masters in four weeks.

In a stand-up that featured only B-roll of Day, Lewis said that the Aussie experienced "discomfort" in his left thumb with full swings at Bay Hill on Monday. Day practiced only his short game without pain last week. Now back in Ohio meeting with his hand specialist, the Match Play champion hopes that rest will be enough to get on the other side of the pain as he will "likely shut it down competitively until the Masters." However, he's prepared to have a cortisone shot to play the season's first major. For Lewis' full 72-second report, cue the vid linked below to 2:08.

Jason Day has been removed from the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Day is nursing a thumb injury. It prevented him from remaining committed to the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship two weeks ago. He hasn't played anywhere since winning the Match Play on Feb. 23. You know that he does not want to risk his status for the upcoming Masters, so today's decision isn't as much of a surprise as it is a concern that he's not yet ready to go again.

Jason Day is listed in the published field of next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Day was an early scratch from last week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. He alluded to having some kind of physical issue in his pre-tournament presser, but nothing that would have suggested not playing at all. Withdrawals from WGCs are usually noteworthy given the guaranteed rewards, but he has just won the Match Play, so he's set for the season. Assuming he returns at Bay Hill, it would be his first action since winning at Dove Mountain. His best finish in four tries is a T25 in 2010.

Jason Day withdrew from the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship prior to his opening round, citing a thumb injury.

The Aussie was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 11:44 a.m. ET. He took last week off following his win at the WGC-Match Play. Shortly thereafter, Day issued the following statement (in its entirety): "My left thumb was bothering me at the Accenture Match Play Championship and the pain continued here this week. I had an MRI yesterday here in Miami with Dr. Lee Kaplan. Fortunately, the MRI was negative, but the doctor prescribed rest if I was unable to play today. My plan is to rest for a couple of weeks. I'm sorry to miss the Cadillac Championship; it looks like it's going to be a great event."

Jason Day needed 23 holes to win the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship over Victor Dubuisson.

Two up with two to play, Day was unable to close out the Frenchman in regulation, but it set up an incredible sudden death. On the first two extra holes -- the par-4 first and par-4 ninth, respectively -- Dubuisson hit approaches into seemingly impossible situations in the desert only to save par both times. After halving the 10th (third hole of sudden death) and 14th (fourth), Day was able to get up-and-down for birdie on the par-4 15th to close out the match. Given that Day finished third at Dove Mountain last year and already has a T2 on the PGA TOUR in 2014, it wasn't a shock that he found his way into the final and ultimately won. He never trailed in either of his matches on Sunday. In fact, the last time he was behind was at the third hole of the quarterfinals against Louis Oosthuizen. This was the first WGC win and second PGA TOUR title of the Aussie's career. His only other PGA TOUR win came at the 2010 HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Jason Day picked up a 3-and-2 victory over Rickie Fowler in the semifinals of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship and advances to the finals.

The Aussie never trailed, picking up three wins over the first eight holes before Fowler was finally able to draw blood with a conceded victory on the ninth hole. The American then erased a Day win on 11 with victories on the 12th and 13th holes. Day would slam the door shut from there, increasing his 1-up lead to an eventual 3-and-2 win with a birdie at the par-4 15th and a par on the par-3 16th following a Fowler three putt from close range. Day's spot in the finale is one round deeper than he made it a year ago. He awaits the victor of the match between Ernie Els and Victor Dubuisson.

Jason Day vanquished Louis Oosthuizen 2 and 1 in the Jones Bracket in the quarterfinals of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Day is the first man to punch a ticket to the semifinals, where he awaits the winner of the Jim Furyk and Rickie Fowler match. The Aussie was 1 down through three holes at Dove Mountain, then stepped on the gas with four wins over the next eight holes, never looking back. In all, he won three holes with birdies and his other two via concessions. Oosthuizen battled all day despite being in obvious pain from a bad back, halving holes with birdie on the par-4 14th and 15th, but Day wouldn't give him an inch. This marks the second consecutive year that Day has reached the final four. Last year he settled for a third-place finish.
Feb 22 - 3:54 PM

Jason Day recorded a 3-and-1 victory over George Coetzee in the Jones Bracket in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Day didn't trail at any point today. He was conceded the first hole, and then traded five wins with three losses the rest of the way, playing 4-under-par to Coetzee's 2-under. The match ended with a birdie concession at the par-4 17th. Day placed third in last year's edition and he's guaranteed no worse than a T5 this weekend. His quarterfinal opponent tomorrow is Louis Oosthuizen.
Feb 21 - 5:57 PM

Jason Day outlasted Billy Horschel in 22 holes in the Jones Bracket in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Horschel raced out to a 3-up lead after four, but won only one more hole the rest of the way (with a birdie at the par-5 eighth). Day picked off wins at 3 (par), 11 (birdie), 12 (par) and 16 (par) to force sudden death. The duo then traded pars on the first three extra holes before Day's birdie at the par-4 fourth ended it. It goes in the books as his only lead in the round. George Coetzee awaits the Aussie on Friday.
Feb 20 - 5:36 PM

Jason Day emerged with a 2-up victory over Thorbjørn Olesen in the Jones Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

For all intents and purposes, this match really didn't get going in earnest until the 11th hole. Prior to that, Day and Olesen exchanged one win apiece, each with a birdie. After sitting all square through 10, nary another halve was recorded. Day picked off the 11th and 12th holes with birdies. Olesen took 13 with a birdie-4. Day regained the 2-up margin with a par at the par-4 14th. The Dane then evened with birdies at 15 and 16. He'd concede the par-4 17th to Day before the Aussie struck a haymaker with a birdie-3 at 18 and a final tally that doesn't appear as close as this match played out. Billy Horschel awaits Day for Thursday's second round.
