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.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 9 - 6:12 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day bobbed and weaved to a 1-over-par 34-39=73 in the second round of the 80th Masters to reach the midpoint on 1-over 145, currently T18 on the leaderboard.

For a second consecutive round, the back nine at Augusta National proved Day's nemesis. Thru two days, he's 8-over on the inward half while 7-under on the first nine. He made the turn on 2-under after erasing an opening bogey with birdies on Nos. 2, 5 and 8. The 28-year-old came home in birdie-less 3-over, squaring bogeys on 11, 13 and 18. He improved to 10 (of 14) fairways but digressed to 11 greens in regulation and averaged 1.67 putts per GIR. Day had three 3-putts in R1 and none in R2 so that's something he can hang his hat on.
Apr 8 - 3:34 PM

Jason Day stretched out his score before giving it all back and signing for an even-par 31-41=72 during the first round of the 80th Masters.

The Aussie was on cruise control to kick off the week. He landed his second shot on the par-5 second hole to 11 feet, splashing in for an early eagle. He added four more birdies and a bogey to step onto the 15th tee box at 5-under. From there went bogey-triple-bogey over the next three holes to clean his slate completely. The par-3 16th hole is where most of the trouble occurred. The Aussie splashed his tee ball and then landed his next shot on the upper-tier of the extremely sloped green. On the bright side, Day opened with the same score in his 2011 Masters debut and still went on to finish T2 that week. There are a lot of holes left to play.
Apr 7 - 6:44 PM

Past champ and 2-seed Jason Day thumped 16-seed Louis Oosthuizen 5-and-4 in the Finals of the World Golf Championship-Dell Match Play to win his ninth TOUR title in 177 career events, and his sixth in his last 13 starts.

This is Day's second Match Play title (2014) in his sixth visit and second WGC crown overall, and it came in back-to-back fashion after winning last week's API wire-to-wire. He finished the week a perfect 7-0-0 and only played beyond the 16th hole one time, a 1 up win over defender Rory McIlroy in the semifinals. Oosthuizen entered the Finals with an unblemished 6-0-0 record, but proved no match for the Aussie who reclaimed World No. 1 earlier in the tourney. Oosthuizen won his only hole on the 403-yard par-4 first with a three-putt par from 86'6" after driving the green, while Day was over the green and failed to get up-and-down. Day got back level on the third (concession), moved to 1 up with birdie on the fourth and it was off to the races. He won holes 7 and 9 with birdies and closed him out with back-to-back birdies on 13 and 14.
Mar 27 - 6:57 PM

Past champion and 2-seed Jason Day outlasted 3-seed and defending champ Rory McIlroy 1 up in the semifinals of the WGC-Dell Match Play and advances to the Finals to square off against 16-seed Louis Oosthuizen.

The 2014 Match Play champ claimed last week's Palmer Invite wire-to-wire and there's been no let up. He opened with a 27'11" birdie to win the par-4 first, and closed out the defender with a 12'11" one-putt par at the 18th to halve the hole that McIlroy had to win. The Aussie circled six birdies total, including three in a four-hole stretch to begin the back nine, the first of which got him back to all square and the second and third moved him to 2 up. McIlroy won the par-4 14th with his fourth birdie of the match to reduce the margin to 1 down, but the duo would halve the final four holes to end the contest. Day, who had to play holes 17 and 18 for the first time this week, moves to 6-0-0, as is Oosthuizen, who's making his first appearance in the Finals.
Mar 27 - 2:14 PM

2-seed Jason Day rallied to a 3-and-2 win over 18-seed Brooks Koepka in their quarterfinal match up at the WGC-Dell Match Play and advances to the semifinals against 3-seed Rory McIlroy.

Day, the 2014 champ, will square off in Final Four action with the defending champ McIlroy in their first-ever meeting in this event. With his victory over Koepka, he improved to 5-0-0 on the week, and with Jordan Spieth exited in the Round of 16, Day will supplant him as the world's top-ranked player. The Aussie was 1 up on Koepka thru four holes after winning the par-4 third with birdie, but the American fought back to take a 1 up margin after winning holes 5 and 6 with back-to-back circles. Day got it to level with his second birdie from 12'10" at the par-4 eighth and took the lead for good with a 7'5" birdie-3 at the 10th. He won the par-5 12th (concession) to go 2 up and the 15th with a par 4 to go 3 up with 3 to play. The duo halved the par-5 16th in pars to conclude the match.
