Jason Day dealt out six birdies en route to a 4-under-par 32-36=68 during round two of the Memorial Tournament, good for an early piece of the clubhouse lead on 8-under 136. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Day is T4, three back, and will play out of the third-to-last twosome in R3 with Hideki Matsuyama.
Round one was all about the putter for this Aussie. He gained 4.293 strokes putting on Thursday. Today, he picked up his iron play but couldn't find the same magic on the greens. Splashing home six birdies today, none came from outside nine feet. He also missed four putts between 6-and-10 feet in addition to a 3'10" par-saving miss. If this co-lead were to hold then it'd be his 13th career 36-hole lead or co-lead. He's gone on to win three of those. Despite the home cooking, this will also be his lowest positioning after 36 holes here at the Memorial (previously T5 during 2010 edition). Jun 1 - 1:13 PM

Muirfield Village member Jason Day compiled a 4-under-par 32-36=68 during round one of the Memorial Tournament, good for an early share of ninth place on the live leaderboard.

The Aussie made headlines when he withdrew from the Wednesday pro-am with a fever. After today's round, he declared it was more of a "man cold," adding that he lost 10 pounds in two days. The illness didn't seem to bother him today, especially on the greens where he gained more than 4 strokes over the field. The highlight was a 25'1" birdie blast at the par-4 sixth hole. While Day hasn't recorded a single top 10 here at his home course (9 starts), fast starts are not new for him. After 18 holes he sat in a share of 2nd place in 2009, a share of 4th place in 2010, and a share of 3rd place in 2016. Day would go on to finish outside the top 25 in all three of those starts. The Columbus resident lost 1.372 strokes on approach today. He will need to tidy that up if he wants to pick off his first top 10 here in Dublin, Ohio.

Columbus resident and World No. 8 Jason Day is in Dublin, Ohio, for the Memorial Tournament and checks in at 3rd in the FedExCup standings but withdrew from Wednesday's pro-am with a fever.

The 30-year-old, a pre-tourney 14/1 outright, is one of five multiple winners on TOUR this season with two in 10 starts. He won the Wells Fargo two starts ago as 54-hole leader and came from behind to win the Farmers in a playoff. The Aussie also has top-5 finishes at Pebble Beach (T2) and THE PLAYERS in his last start three weeks ago (T5). He's 6-for-9 at Muirfield Village GC -- where he's a member -- with a pair of T27s in 2009 and 2016, and a best of T15 last year, T3 thru 54 holes (75-71-67-70). Day has withdrawn from a few Wednesday pro-am's in the past and on at least two of those occasions, went on to win the tournament, including the Farmers in January (back), which extended into Monday and a 6-hole, sudden-death playoff.

Past champ and World No. 7 Jason Day signed for a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-36=68 after the final round of THE PLAYERS to finish up on 13-under 275, currently down two places to solo 6th. UPDATE: With play completed, Day finished T5, his fourth top 5 of the season, and five shy of overnight leader and champion Webb Simpson.

This was the 2016 winner's eighth PLAYERS, fourth top 25 and third top 10. He improves to 10-for-10 on the season with eight top 25s and four top 10s, highlighted by wins at the Farmers and last week's Wells Fargo. After kicking off in 69-67-71, the 30-year-old began T4 on 9-under, 10 back. On seven (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, he went out in 4-under with birdies at 2 and 4 and a hole-out eagle-3 at 9 from a greenside bunker 56'4" away, but stalled out with nine straight pars. The Aussie posted 1.700 putts per GIR and 0.141 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. For the week, he tallied one eagle and 16 birdies against five bogeys, T2 in the latter at the time he signed his card.

Past champ and World No. 7 Jason Day pieced together a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to post 9-under 207, up four places to T4 with play winding down. UPDATE: With R3 complete, Day is in a five-way T4, 10 back of leader Webb Simpson.

After kicking off in 69-67, the 2016 wire-to-wire winner began T8 on 8-under, seven adrift of leader Webb Simpson. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.698 strokes approaching but gaining 0.874 around-the-green. The 30-year-old conjured three birdies at holes 2, 5 and 11 (from 16'8"), slightly outpacing two bogey-5s at 4 and 14. He posted a commercial 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.032 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.

Last week's winner Jason Day twirled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of THE PLAYERS Championship, climbing inside the top 10 with a two-day total of 8-under 136.

It wasn't love at first sight for the Aussie and TPC Sawgrass, missing the cut in three of his first five visits. Then he flipped the script and won the 2016 edition and now he's right back in the mix two years later. Strong short game continues to be the conduit for Day's success. Today he gained 1.514 strokes putting, despite missing his first putt of the season from inside five feet. The key to keeping this round glued together were back-to-back par-savers from 14'11" and 17'8" at the 18th and 1st holes. Day won last week at Quail Hollow Club but that's never stopped him from contending the following week. His results after wins are RUNNER-UP, T27, T10, WIN, T10, T12, WIN, T12, T4, T20, and T50.
May 11 - 1:29 PM

Overnight leader and World No. 14 Jason Day fashioned a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to reach 12-under 272, good for a two-shot win over Aaron Wise and playing competitor Nick Watney, and his 12th PGA TOUR title in 220 events. UPDATE: Day jumps seven places to 7th in OWGR and 14 spots to 2nd in the FedExCup standings.

The 30-year-old, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, claims his second victory of the season in nine starts (P1, Farmers) and becomes the season's fourth multiple winner. This was his third Wells Fargo, first since a T9 in 2012, and records his third top 25. After kicking off 69-67-67, the Aussie led by two over Watney, and improves to 7-for-14 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes, six for his last seven. He conjured six (of 14) fairways and eight greens in regulation, losing 1.431 strokes off-the-tee and 0.525 tee-to-green. The Ohio resident squared four bogeys at holes 5, 6, 13 and 14, outflanked by six birdies at 2, 7, 8, 10, 16 and 17, the latter two from 10'8" and 3'1", respectively, including a near-ace at the par-3 17th. He posted a stellar 1.250 putts per GIR and 3.498 SG: Putting with just 22 total putts (14, 1-putts).
May 6 - 6:09 PM

World No. 14 Jason Day styled a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to reach 10-under 203, up one place on the day and good for the 54-hole lead by two over Nick Watney, who he'll be paired with in the final twosome on Sunday.

The 30-year-old is chasing his 12th TOUR title in 220 events, second this season in nine starts. He won the Farmers back in January, coming from three back with 2-under 70 and prevailed in a 6-hole, 3-man playoff which extended into Monday. Interestingly, prior to the Farmers, his last three stroke-play wins were the wire-to-wire kind, and his prior five were all as 54-hole leader/co-leader. In total, this is the Aussie's 14th lead/co-lead at the three-quarter mark, converting six into victory (five for his last six). After kicking off in 69-67, he began T2, one back of leader Peter Malnati. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, the 30-year-old hit six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. He squared a lone bogey-5 at No. 5, outflanked by five birdies at 9, 10, 12 (from 13'11"), 14 and 15, posting 1.636 putts per GIR and 1.400 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.
May 5 - 6:09 PM

Jason Day remained tidy in round two of the Wells Fargo Championship, penciling a 4-under-par 33-34=67 to arrive at halftime with a score of 6-under 136 to his name, just one off the leader Peter Malnati.

The Aussie put his power on full display today, piping 12 drives over 315 yards to help him gain 1.862 strokes off-the-tee. His irons were spotty throughout the round but his short game was stout, as usual. The highlight in that department came at the par-5 10th where he holed out from the greenside bunker (97'10") for an untraditional eagle. After 36 holes of action, Day has traded six birdies and an eagle with just two bogeys. The final piece to his puzzle is figuring out the irons which he will need to sync up over the weekend if he wants to hoist the trophy come Sunday afternoon. When positioned T3 or better thru 36 holes, Day is 21-for-24 in terms of converting them into top 10s. Gamers should expect him to hang around near the top of the board for two more days.
May 4 - 6:11 PM

Jason Day prepares for his ninth start of the season as he turns his attention toward Quail Hollow Club for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The Aussie finished T22 in his 2010 Quail Hollow debut. He returned to post a T9 in 2012 and repeated that effort last year at the PGA Championship hosted by Quail Hollow. Early in the season, Day has picked up top 25s in all six of his individual stroke-play events. Day's only weakness on paper is his approach play but that can be very misleading given his early-season schedule. Three of his starts haven't had any ShotLink measured rounds and two of his starts have come on multi-course events where not all of his rounds were captured via ShotLink. Gamers should feel free to ignore his strokes gained stats at this point in the season, making him a great option in all fantasy formats.

Jason Day has a few close calls at the Masters Tournament and he'll return this week for the 82nd edition of the event, hoping he can finally slip on that coveted green jacket.

Many say first-timers can't win at Augusta National but that narrative would have died if Day would have converted back in 2011. He was in solo second after 36 holes, tied for a share of second place at 54 holes and was right in the mix until Charl Schwartzel made a late Sunday charge to pass him. Day withdrew during R2 the following year with an ankle injury but got right back in contention in 2013 (solo lead thru R2, finished solo third). He'll have plenty of good course vibes but he will need to overcome some recent spotty iron play (negative SG:APPROACH in three straight starts). In his pre-tourney presser he said "I wasn't quite happy with how I was hitting it at the Match Play. I was launching it a little bit higher and spinning a little bit too much" ... "hopefully with a little bit of a change, that could spark something." Not a lot of confidence in the tee-to-green department but he remains one of the world's best putters.

Past champ and World No. 10 Jason Day makes final preparations for his eighth Arnold Palmer Invitational and heads out at 8:23 am ET on Thursday with Hideki Matsuyama and Tiger Woods. UPDATE: Day finished T22 on 5-under 283 (73-71-67-72).

The 30-year-old won here in 2016 as a 14/1 pre-tourney outright and was grouped with Matsuyama in Rounds 1 and 2 (LATE/early). He's a 12/1 outright this week, second only to Woods. The Aussie won the 2016 edition in wire-to-wire fashion by one (66-65-70-70) and is his only top 10 in seven visits. He does have three other top 25s, including T23 last year defending. Day is 4-for-4 on the season with four finishes of T11 or better, highlighted by a P1 at the Farmers two starts ago and a T2 at Pebble Beach in his most recent event five weeks ago. He leads the TOUR in consecutive top-25 finishes with 10 straight dating back to a T24 at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone. The Ohio resident also leads the TOUR in SG: Putting (1.861). Historically, he's not fared well when grouped with Woods. This will be his fifth event, all in Rounds 1 and 2, and has only made one cut (71st, 2015 Memorial).

Jason Day will not make the trip to this week's WGC-Mexico Championship, skipping the event to be with his mother during some of her health check-ups.

Day has two different reasons for skipping this week's big event. First he told AAP the following, "I'm going to take Mexico off. My mum is coming over here (to the US) to have scans, so I'm going to spend some time with her." That is a very valid reason, given her battles with health over the last 12 months. The Aussie also shared some news that he was dealing with a double ear infection and the flu which prevented him from prep work." The next scheduled event for Day is the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 12th.

World No. 10 Jason Day navigated a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, nudging one spot into a four-way T2 on 14-under 273, three in arrears of champion Ted Potter, Jr., who shot 69.

After opening with 69-65-69, the 30-year-old began T3, two adrift of co-leaders Potter, Jr and Dustin Johnson. Playing out of the penultimate group, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 2.038 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.568 tee-to-green. The Aussie carded five birdies at holes 2, 6, 8, 15 and 16, three from between 10 and 13 feet, squaring three bogeys at 5, 9 and 13. He recorded 1.600 putts per GIR and 3.621 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. The Ohio resident was chasing his 12th TOUR title in 215 career events, second this season in four starts and second straight, but settles for a 10th career runner-up. He improves to 9-for-9 at the AT&T with seven top 25s and five top 10s, second straight, and eclipses a previous-best T4 in 2015.

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, World No. 10 Jason Day tacked on a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to reach 12-under 203, up two places to T3, two shy of 54-hole co-leaders Ted Potter, Jr. and Dustin Johnson.

The 30-year-old will play out of the penultimate group (with his amateur partner) in Round 4 and is going for his second straight win (P1, Farmers). Overall, he's chasing a 12th TOUR title in 215 career events, fourth in come-from-behind fashion and second straight. Beginning off No. 10 tee, the Aussie landed nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.530 strokes approaching-the-green.
