World No. 1 Jason Day orchestrated a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to reach 12-under 275, up six places to T5 with play still in progress.
The was the 29-year-old's eighth appearance and is a sixth top-25 finish and fourth top 10. His best is T4 in 2015 which was highlighted by a 62 in R2. After opening in 69-64, the Aussie co-led with Jordan Spieth and Derek Fathauer, but a third-round 75 dropped him to T11, 10 adrift of eventual 54-hole leader Spieth. He circled five birdies, including back-to-backs at Nos. 1 and 2, and 17 and 18, in between cancelling out eagle-3 at 14 with bogeys at 12 and 16. This was Day's third start of the season, joining a missed cut at the Farmers and T12 at the SBS TOC. Feb 12 - 5:49 PM

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, second-round tri-leader Jason Day labored to a 3-over-par 34-41=75 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to end on 7-under 208, down nine spots to T10 with play still in progress.

After opening in 69-64, the World No. 1 co-led with Jordan Spieth and Derek Fathauer. He went off No. 10 tee and was 6-over thru seven holes, squaring bogeys at 11, 12, and 15, the latter a 3-jack from 10'8", and eating double bogey-7 at 14 after hitting his second OB. The 29-year-old got on the board from 6'4" at the par-3 17th, and then 3-jacked again (from 22'2") for bogey-6 at 18. He did muster four birdies on his inward half, at 4, 6, 7 and 9, three from between 11 and 32 feet, but not before another double at the par-3 fifth after taking three to get on the green. Day hit eight (of 14) fairway and 13 greens in regulation, but lost 2.363 strokes tee-to-green and 1.934 with the flat stick.

Playing Spyglass Hill Golf Course, World No. 1 Jason Day twirled a week-tying-low 8-under-par 32-32=64 in the two-day second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to reach 10-under 133, tying the 36-hole lead with Jordan Spieth and Derek Fathauer, the latter shooting 8-under 64/R2 on Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Barring a disaster in Round 3, the 29-year-old is on his way to improving his record at Pebble Beach to 8-for-8. He kicked off with a four-birdie two-bogey 69 (Monterey Peninsula CC) and was 7-under thru 12 holes of R2 (on Friday) when play was suspended (fog). The Aussie returned Saturday morning to bogey the par-4 13th but bounced back with back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15, wrapping up a nine-birdie one-bogey showing. He mustered just six (of 14) fairways but hit 14 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.429 putts per GIR.
Feb 11 - 12:41 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day contests his eighth AT&T Pebble Beach and has a course rotation of Monterey Peninsula (MP), Spyglass Hill (SH) and Pebble Beach (PB).

The 29-year-old is 7-for-7 at Pebble Beach with five top 25s, three for top 10s, including a T4 in 2015, highlighted by a 9-under 62 in R2 at MP. He built a sizable cushion at the top of the world rankings with five TOUR wins in 2015 and three last year, most recently a wire-to-wire win at THE PLAYERS last May. The Aussie has played in just four tournaments in the last 22 weeks, withdrawing from the last two Playoffs events and finishing T12 at the no-cut SBS TOC and a missed cut (by three) at the Farmers two weeks ago, ending a streak of 19 consecutive made cuts on TOUR.

Playing Torrey Pines North, World No. 1 and pre-tourney co-fave Jason Day labored to a 2-over-par 36-38=74 in today's second round of the Farmers Insurance Open and at 3-over 73-74= 147, missed the cut by three shots.

A total of 79 pros from a field of 156 players made the cut of even-par 144 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will come after 54 holes. As for Day, this is his second consecutive missed cut at the FIO after connecting three straight top 10s, including his playoff win in 2015. He arrived off T12 at the SBS TOC, his only start in the last 21 weeks. Paired in Rounds 1 and 2 with World No. 3 and co-fave Dustin Johnson, and World No. 663 and 7-time champ Tiger Woods -- each of whom MCd, the 29-year-old opened with a five-birdie six-bogey 73 (South) and mustered just one birdie against three bogeys in R2, missing his first cut since this same tourney last year and ending his consecutive cuts made streak at 19. Other notable exits: 145- 2014 champ Scott Stallings; Brooks Koepka, Jamie Lovemark .. 146- Kevin Chappell; Dustin Johnson; Luke List .. 147- Jimmy Walker; Rickie Fowler .. 148- Hudson Swafford; Daniel Berger; Tiger Woods.

World No. 1 Jason Day conjured up a 3-under-par 34-36=70 in today's final round of the SBS Tournament of Champions to conclude his fourth appearance on 13-under 279, up two places to T11 with play still in progress.

Making his first start (anywhere) in 15 weeks, the 29-year-old began the final frame on 10-under (T13) after opening in 70-69-70. He was sputtering along at 1-under thru 17 holes, outpacing two bogeys with three birdies, but canned an 11-footer for eagle on the par-5 18th, the first eagle at the closing hole all week. In total, Day had one eagle and 19 birdies against eight bogeys, and is currently 6th (of 32) in SG: Tee-to-Green (3.146) but 20th in SG: Putting (-0.757). He completed 72 holes for the first time since finishing T15 at the Deutsche Bank four-and-a-half months ago.
Jan 8 - 6:22 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day continued to shake off the rust in round two of the SBS Tournament of Champions, signing a 4-under-par 33-32=65 to reach 7-under 139.

The Aussie gained 2.135 strokes approaching the green today as he peppered 16 greens in regulation. Surprisingly, his flat stick is the last tool to get back in the zone for Day, coming off a long break over the fall. Day uncharacteristically missed three putts from inside 10 feet, losing 0.904 strokes putting on the round. This round could have very easily been a 7- or 8-under round but instead Day will find himself at least four strokes off the lead heading into the weekend. It will take a big round over the weekend to reach the top of the leaderboard, but Day is no stranger to going low on Maui. He holds the co-course record here, firing a closing 11-under 62 in the 2015 edition.
Jan 6 - 8:59 PM

Despite having not completed a tournament in 15 weeks, Jason Day has maintained his position atop the world rankings.

The 29-year-old regained the No. 1 spot with the second of his three wins last season at the WGC-Dell Match Play and has stayed there ever since. In 12 events post-Match Play, he's only had one finish outside the top 25, a T27 at the Memorial. The Aussie's three titles last season -- capped off with his win at THE PLAYERS -- were tied-most with Dustin Johnson, and his five wins the year prior were tied most with Jordan Spieth. Both of his stroke-play wins in 2015-16 were wire-to-wire, making it three straight where he's been the only leader, dating back to his win at the 2015 BMW Championship. Day, who was also the 36-hole leader and 54-hole co-leader at the WGC-Bridgestone before finishing T3, has been idle since a T15 at the Deutsche Bank the first week of September. He withdrew during the final round of the BMW and also checked out after 25 holes at the TOUR Championship.

Taking a page from the playbook of Punxsutawney Phil, Jason Day has announced his plan to hibernate over the fall and winter, allowing ample time to rehab his ailing back.

The Aussie was forced to withdraw from the final two events of the FedExCup Playoffs, due to his back acting up. The 28-year-old informed his Twitter followers with the message, "On the advice of his team physician, world #1 ranked golfer Jason Day has regretfully withdrawn from the 2016 Emirates Australian Open and the 2016 World Cup of Golf." Both events were scheduled for mid-to-late November. Day will also miss a charity event in the Philippines which was scheduled for November 29th. We will update with a return event becomes clearer but for now we can assume the Tournament of Champions on January 5th is likely the earliest Day would return.

World No. 1 Jason Day has withdrawn from this week's TOUR Championship, citing a back injury. He was 3-under-par on the week through 25 holes at the time of the WD.

The Aussie opened the week with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 to sit just one stroke off the lead after day one. He split just five fairways in round one to find himself whacking it out of the thick stuff plenty of times. That's exactly what he was doing (with a driver) when he withdrew from the event. On the day he traded one birdie and one bogey to keep himself at 3-under so he was still right in the thick of contention before the par-4 eighth. This is the second-straight event Day has backed out of mid-tournament with back troubles. This puts an end to his season and likely puts him out of contention for the Player of the Year award. The 28-year-old is currently committed to the World Cup of Golf starting November 24th, where he'll pair up with Adam Scott as the defending champions.

Jason Day's back looked fine as he constructed a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the TOUR Championship, putting him one off the early pacesetters.

The Aussie bowed out during the final round at the BMW Championship two weeks ago, citing a back injury. He bounced back nicely today, playing blemish-free golf after an opening bogey. In typical Day fashion, he found just five fairways but used his flat stick to make up the work. The 28-year-old splashed home five putts from 10-to-17 feet on the front nine alone before adding one more coming home. He walked off the course gaining 2.110 strokes putting. Day continues to be a walking billboard for the saying, "drive for show, putt for dough."

World No. 1 and defending champion Jason Day withdrew during the final round of the BMW Championship citing a back injury.

The 28-year-old began the final frame on 5-under (T21) after opening in 73-67-71, 13 shots in arrears to 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson. He was 2-over on his lap thru eight holes, outbalancing birdie-4 at five with bogey at the par-4 second and a double bogey-5 at the third that included a shank from a greenside bunker. This is the Aussie's lone WD this season in 19 starts and sixth overall in 190 career events, first since WDing from this same tournament in 2014 (also with a back) after a first-round even-par 70,. He's projecting to drop two places to fourth in the FedExCup standings with the top 5 entering the TOUR Championship (in two weeks) controlling their own destiny.

Jason Day hoisted the trophy at the 2015 BMW Championship held at Conway Farms Golf Club and now turn his attention to Crooked Stick Golf Club for a chance to defend his title at this year's edition.

World No. 1 lapped the field at last year's BMW. The Aussie held a five-shot lead at halftime, stretched it to six through three quarters and finished the week six shots clear of runner-up Daniel Berger. That was at Conway Farms, a 7,198-yard layout but he'll face a much beefier task this week at Crooked Stick. The Pete Dye design stretches out to 7,567 yards. Day has lost a combined 8.313 strokes off-the-tee during this year's FedExCup Playoffs, but he's still managed a T4 and T15 at The Barclays and Deutsche Bank Championship, respectively. If he can clean it up on the tee box this week, he should be right in the mix come Sunday. This will be his first look at Crooked Stick as he found himself 87th in the FedExCup race after the 2012 Deutsche Bank and failed to qualify for the BMW that season.

World No. 1 Jason Day fashioned a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to wrap his ninth appearance on 8-under 276, up 18 places on the live leaderboard to T15.

The 28-year-old played the weekend in 68-67 after being the last man to make the cut after opening in 70-71. He began the finale on 4-under (T33), a distant 11 in arrears to 54-hole leader Paul Casey. The Aussie squared a lone bogey at the par-5 second, 3-putting from 9'10", but played his final 16 holes in blemish-free 5-under. As it stands, a closing birdie at the par-5 18th would've back-doored a top 10, but he'll settle for his fourth straight top-20 finish at TPC Boston. For the week, Day totaled two eagles and 16 birdies against six bogeys, one double, and one quad bogey-8 in R2. He's currently 9th in SG: Approach-the-Green and SG: Putting, but 71st (of 72) in SG: Off-the-Tee (-5.432).

World No. 1 Jason Day tossed up a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach 4-under 209, up 26 places on the live leaderboard to T36.

The 28-year-old was the last (of 11) to make the cut on 1-under 141 after opening in 70-71. He continues to carve his way back for a quad bogey-8 in R2, but swallowed another big number in the third round, double bogey-6 at the 10th, the result of another errant tee shot. The Aussie improved to nine (of 14) fairways but still lost 0.921 off-the-tee and is currently DFL in that stat (72nd) and T70 in driving accuracy at 52.38 percent (22/42). Similar to last week, the putter is the saving grace, posting 2.710 in SG: Putting with six par breakers on 13 greens in regulation, highlighted by a walk-off eagle from 7'2" at the 18th.
