Past champ and World No. 4 Jason Day turned in a 2-under-par 34-34=68 after the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to match playing competitor Billy Horschel on 12-under 268, and then lost on the first hole of sudden death, the par-4 18th, 3-putting from 48'4" for bogey while Horschel won with a 2-putt par.
The 2012 winner was vying for an 11th TOUR title in his 201st career start but settles for a ninth career runner-up. It's his fourth top 25 at the Nelson in five tries, all four doubling as top 10s, and a second top 10 of the season in 10 starts (T5, AT&T Pro-Am). After opening in 68-69-63, the 29-year-old began T3 on 10-under, one back of Horschel and two shy of 54-hole leader James Hahn. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 3.603 SG: Tee-to-Green though -0.644 SG: Putting. The Aussie went out in 1-under, circling birdie-4 at No. 7, now tied with Hahn and Horschel. He came home in 1-under, outpacing a lone bogey-5 at 12 (failed scramble) with a 6-footer for birdie-3 at 10 and a pitch-in 3 at the par-4 15th from 78'3" away. Day's record in extra time drops to 1-1. May 21 - 7:35 PM

Past champ and World No. 4 Jason Day enjoyed a 7-under-par 31-32=63 on Moving Day at the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 10-under 200, up 15 places to T2, good for the low round of the day thus far and the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Day is in a two-way T3, two back of 54-hole leader James Hahn, and will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4. UPDATE #2: TOUR officials have switched to threesomes due to weather delay; the final group will now be Hahn (-12), Billy Horschel (-11) and Day (-10).

This is the 29-year-old's fifth Nelson, first since T27 in 2013. He won on debut in 2012 as the 54-hole leader (66-65-67-72) and also recorded top 10s in 2011 (solo 5th) and 2012 (T9). The Aussie arrived off a T60 in defense at THE PLAYERS (70-72-73-80) and 106th in the FedExCup standings, 7-for-9 on the season with one top 10, a T5 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. After opening in 68-69, he began T17 on 3-under, nine short of 36-hole leader Jason Kokrak. The Ohio resident landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 4.027 SG: Tee-to-Green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 14 (failed sand save), camouflaged by eight birdies, four from between nine and 17 feet, adding a 60'1" bomb for birdie-2 at 17. Day registered 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.183 SG: Putting, the current leader in the former at 1.576.

Defending champ and World No. 3 Jason Day carved out an even-par 35-37=72 in the second round of THE PLAYERS to reach halftime on 2-under 142, down one spot to T19, a distant seven in arrears of 36-hole clubhouse leaders Louis Oosthuizen and Kyle Stanley.

The Aussie was World No. 1 when the wire-to-wire winner last year and on 15-under after the halfway mark, so he's well off that pace. He opened with a five-birdie three-bogey 70, bogey-free 5-under thru 14 holes, but squared three of his last four. The 29-year-old cancelled three birdies with three bogeys in R2 on 12 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 2.137 strokes tee-to-green but losing 0.936 on-the-green. He circled holes 2, 7 and 16, each from inside of seven feet, squaring 5, 14 and 15, 3-putting the par-4 14th from 44'10".

Jason Day searches for his swing ahead of his attempted title defense at this week's PLAYERS Championship.

The big-hitting Aussie lapped the field last year at TPC Sawgrass thanks to a course-record-tying 9-under 63 in Round 1. He raced out to 15-under at the midpoint before the course firmed up as he cruised home to win at that same score (4-shot margin of victory). Last year he arrived with 8.5 strokes gained approaching-the-green in his three measured lead-up starts. This time around he's lost 6.1 strokes approaching-the-green in his last three ShotLink-measured events. On the bright side, he posted a T22 in his latest start at the 81st Masters so perhaps his swing is rounding back into form after an off-the-course scare with his mother's health. With TPC Sawgrass testing all facets of the game, Day will need his game at (or near) 100 percent if he wants to defend his crown.

World No. 3 Jason Day checks in for his fifth Zurich Classic of New Orleans at 92nd in the FedExCup standings and teams up with fellow Zurich Golf Ambassador and World No. 9 Rickie Fowler, who's making his seventh appearance. UPDATE: With rounds of 71 (alternate shot) and 68 (best ball), Day & Fowler missed the cut by two shots.

The Aussie lost his World No. 1-ranking with T64 at the Genesis, finished T23 four weeks later in defense at Bay Hill, and WD the following week on Day 1 of the WGC-Match Play to attend to his Mom's health issues. He returned three weeks ago to post T22 at the Masters in his most recent start. The 29-year-old is 3-for-4 in NOLA with top 5s in each of the last two editions, including a best of T4 in 2015 where he was a 54-hole co-leader. He's won the 2013 ISPS Handa World Cup (w/ Adam Scott) and has played on three Presidents Cup teams compiling a 4-8-3 record. Fowler arrives 8th in FEC points with four top 10s in eight starts and six consecutive top-20 finishes, highlighted by his fourth TOUR title at the Honda. The duo is currently a pre-tourney 6/1 outright, just shy of favorites Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose.

World No. 3 Jason Day enjoyed a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's third round of the 81st Masters for a three-day total of 3-over 219, up 20 places on the live leaderboard to T25 and tying Brandt Snedeker for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Day is in 27th place while 54-hole co-leader Justin Rose shot the low round with 67.

This is the 29-year-old's seventh appearance with three prior top 10s and a best of T2 on debut in 2011. He checked in at 93rd in the FedExCup standings with one top 10 in six events, a T5 at the AT&T Pebble Beach where he was a 36-hole co-leader. The Aussie chased that with T64 at the Genesis Open -- losing the world's No. 1-ranking -- a T23 one month later in defense of the Arnold Palmer, and a T58 at the Match Play, also as defender, WD'ing during his first match. He opened this week in 74-76, the last (of 53) players to make the cut, and went off solo (w/ marker) in R3. Day squared bogeys at 2, 4 and 17, offset by birdies at 3, 6, and four straight at 12-15, highlighted by a near-ace at the par-3 sixth (11 inches). He landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, averaging 1.67 putts per hole with zero 3-putts.

The 2016 World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies World Match Play winner Jason Day withdrew from his round one match against Pat Perez, distressed by the news of his mother's cancer diagnosis.

The Australian golfer left the course after six holes before explaining to the media, during an emotional press conference: "My mom has lung cancer. She's going in for surgery Friday. Hard to comprehend being on the golf course. I just need some time away with her." He elaborated that he'll miss the rest of the competition to be with his family.

World No. 3 Jason Day hoisted the Walter Hagen Cup after winning seven matches at the 2016 WGC-Dell Match Play, and returns this week for another crack at Austin Country Club.

Arriving fresh off a win at the 2016 Arnold Palmer Invitational, Day kept his foot on the gas to win seven straight Match Play matches in last year's edition. That included the finale where he ousted Louis Oosthuizen 5-and-4, the largest margin of victory in a championship match since 2008 when Tiger Woods won 8-and-7 over Stewart Cink. Day is no stranger to success at this event, as he also won the 2014 edition at Dove Mountain and finished third the year before that. Instead of being the golfer that arrives off an API win, this year he will have to beat that golfer (Marc Leishman) in addition to Lee Westwood and Pat Perez who round out Group 3. While Day doesn't enter with the same form as last year, his career head-to-head record of 22-8-0 secures his spot as one of the favorites this week in Austin, Texas.

Defending champ and World No. 2 Jason Day conjured a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in today's second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and reached halftime on 3-under 141, down five places on the live leaderboard to T13, seven in arrears to 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman. UPDATE: Day carded rounds of 70-71-75-70, currently T23, 10 back of the leader on the course.

The 29-year-old led by two at the midpoint last year on 13-under (66-65), so he's well off that pace. He mustered eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.762 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.036 approaching-the-green. The Aussie went out in birdie-less 1-over, squaring the par-4 eighth (failed scramble). His closest scoring chance thru his first nine holes was 11'7", with nothing else inside of 20 feet. He dialed in his approach to the par-4 11th to within four feet for his first circle, and eagled the par-5 15th from 8'11", dropping a second shot in between at the par-3 14th. Day's proximity to hole in R2 was 37'10".

World No. 2 and defending champ Jason Day constructed a 2-under-par 36-34=70 during round one of his title defense at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Aussie went out early in cold conditions, which really made the golf course play tough. Day remained calm and played very conservative to offset the lack of scoring opportunities the weather provided him. It ended up quite nicely, as his short game was on point from the start. Despite finding just 10 greens in regulation, Day swallowed just one bogey, which came right after the turn for him at the par-4 first hole. Day opened last year's API with a 6-under 66 on his way to a 17-under 271 finish. With Bay Hill playing a bit tougher so far, Day is still in solid position after day one.
Mar 16 - 1:42 PM

World No. 2 Jason Day went wire-to-wire at last year's Arnold Palmer Invitational and returns this week for another crack at Bay Hill Club and Lodge.

The Aussie entered last year's API with a 3-for-5 tournament record that included a first-round WD in 2009 (dizziness). The best he had previously pieced together at Bay Hill was a T17, but he took a liking to the freshly-laid bermuda greens, gaining 5.52 strokes putting by week's end. On top of that, Day gained another 4.19 strokes around-the-green, so the short game was clicking from the start. On the whole, he traded 23 birdies and an eagle with six bogeys and one double to lead by himself after every round and eclipse Kevin Chappell by one stroke come Sunday night. More recently, Day opted to skip the WGC-Mexico Championship, citing a double ear infection and the flu. The 29-year-old should be well-rested heading into the week, but the WDs continue to pile up, making him a high-risk, high-reward type of option.

According to Golf Channel's Ryan Lavner, newly demoted World No. 2 Jason Day is out of next week's World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship with a double ear infection and flu.

This is bad news for the tournament's debut (formerly WGC-Cadillac) but timely news for gamers. The 29-year-old lost his No. 1-ranking with T64 at last week's weather-plagued Genesis Open, yielding to tournament winner Dustin Johnson. He was scheduled to make his seventh appearance in the second WGC event of the season, but had never finished inside the top 20 at Trump National Doral; and he's never played the first WGC event of the season (HSBC Champions). Expect to see the Aussie back Mar. 16th for the Arnold Palmer Invitational or Mar. 22nd at the WGC-Dell Match Play, where he's the defending champ in both.

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.

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.
