RBC Ambassador Jason Day hung up a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude his third appearance in the tournament at 17-under 271, good for a one-shot victory over Bubba Watson.
Day began his final frame at 13-under and two shots back of 54-hole leader David Hearn. After birdie at the par-5 second, a missed birdie on the third from 5'1", and a conversion on the fifth from 8'4", the Australian pulled to within one of Hearn. Day circled another on seven from 7'8", pushing his total to 16-under and the outright lead. It was short-lived, however, as he squared consecutive bogeys at eight and nine. After six consecutive pars on Nos. 10-15, the 27-year-old tied the lead with birdie at 16 and took sole possession with birdie on 17 from outside 11 feet. Day took it to the bank by drilling his sixth birdie of the day on the last from 21'10" for the dramatic birdie-birdie-birdie finish. This is his fourth PGA TOUR title in 165 career events and second of the season on 14 starts (Farmers Insurance Open). Jul 26 - 5:59 PM

Jason Day battled to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and he'll enter the final round two back of 54-hole leader David Hearn.

Day began Saturday's play at 10-under (solo fifth) and four shots adrift. He wrapped at 13-under 203, improving his position by three and reducing his deficit to two. For about the first three hours of his loop however, he was heading in the wrong direction. The RBC Ambassador traded one bogey with a single birdie to reach the break at even. He opened his inward half by squaring bogey at the 10th and after suffering a double bogey-6 at the 11th he dropped out of the top 25. The Aussie bounced back, dropping a 13-footer for birdie at the par-3 12th and adding another from the fringe at the par-5 13th. After par on 14, Day was still 1-over on the round. Short lived, as the 27-year-old sniped-off four straight birdies to the house, highlighted by his 37'9" sidewinder on the 17th. Day has one win (Farmers Insurance Open) on 13 season-starts and three total on 164 career events. He'll be in the penultimate pairing on Sunday with Michael Putnam (12-under).

Jason Day chased his opening 68 at the RBC Canadian Open with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round to post 10-under 134 at the break.

He's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Day opened birdie-birdie-birdie on the back half of Glen Abbey today, the third par breaker falling from 49'9" at the par-3 12th hole. He added an eagle from 13 feet at the par-5 18th and four birdies, including conversions from 17'11" and 12'7" at Nos. 2 and 6, respectively. The Aussie also squared three bogeys, including a three-jack from 42'5" at the par-5 15th, but the bright side is that he's already contending again after what happened at St. Andrews. Remember this next time you're reluctant to invest in a similar situation.

Jason Day enjoyed a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's opening round of the RBC Canadian Open.

Wasting no time to turn the page after Sunday's letdown on the 72nd hole at St. Andrews, it took Day three holes before he reconnected with forward progress. He opened with a par at the par-4 first hole at Glen Abbey, and then slopped his way to a 6 at the par-5 second. It would be his only gaffe of the round. With a bounce-back birdie from 15'7" at the par-4 third, the Aussie returned to level where he'd remain until making the turn. His 345-yard drive at the par-4 10th found the left rough from where he laced the perfect approach from 95 yards for an eagle. (You can view his hole-out and subsequent high-fives with the spectators at the link below.) He picked off two more birdies on the way in and finished four strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Jul 23 - 5:56 PM

For the third time at The 144th Open Championship, Jason Day went bogey-free, this time in 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round, but checked up one stroke off the pace of the threesome atop the leaderboard.

The overnight co-leader went 4-for-4 in scrambling at St. Andrews today, but he managed only two birdies (at Nos. 5 and 6). He stood over a birdie from long range and behind the hole at the par-4 18th, but left the roll short on the proper line. Day totaled 31 putts on Monday. His only bogeys of the week came in the second round during which he squared a trio of 5s on par 4s. It's easily his best finish in The Open -- he now has six top fives in 20 starts in the majors -- but the 27-year-old will head to the RBC Canadian Open with only more scar tissue. At the same time, he's done nothing to suggest that his day won't come, and sooner than later.

Jason Day authored a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of The 144th Open Championship to post 12-under 204 at the three-quarter pole, good for a share of the 54-hole lead.

The 27-year-old Aussie went 2-for-2 in scrambling and circled five birdies at St. Andrews today. He needed only 30 putts. Day toured the home of golf in bogey-free fashion in the opening round as well, carding a 66 on Thursday. His only three bogeys occurred in the snarl of the two-day second round when he shot 71. He'll wake up on Monday with his latest and arguably best chance to win a major. Day has eight top 10s in majors, but his best finish in an Open is T30 at Royal St. George's in 2011. He'll also be attempting to become the first Aussie to pick one off since Adam Scott ended the country's drought at the Masters in 2013. Greg Norman was the last Australian to win an Open when he emerged with his second Claret Jug in 1993 at Royal St. George's.

Jason Day signed for a 1-under-par 34-37=71 following his second round of The Open Championship and posted 7-under 137, three strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Day hit 15 greens and scattered four birdies, but didn't secure the red number until he circled a 3 at the last. His card also included a trio of bogey-5s, but given the challenging winds, he was just happy to get off the course and reach the midpoint. Once again, to be blatantly redundant, that Day remains healthy enough to play golf is invaluable. Like Louis Oosthuizen, the Aussie is tremendously useful when the stars align. It would be an upset if he doesn't remain a part of the conversation over the final two rounds.
Jul 18 - 2:50 PM

Jason Day ripped off a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of The 144th Open Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Healthy again, for now at least, the Aussie went 5-for-5 in scrambling and picked off three birdies on each nine at St. Andrews today. He birdied both par 5s. It's the first time he's scored lower than 71 in 17 rounds in this major. With his length and short game, he should contend, but as an injury risk, gamers are more often to look elsewhere no matter the occasion. Today's superb start helps calm our nerves.

Todd Lewis provided an update on Jason Day for the reporter's followers on Twitter today.

Lewis wrote, "Spoke to @JDayGolf about his vertigo. Diagnosed with viral infection that's attacking inner ear nerve. On meds and feels ready for @TheOpen." This was one of the suspected causes for Day's problem, but he couldn't pinpoint it. No doubt we'll learn more about his health as we get closer to the season's third major. Day survived the second round of the U.S. Open and finished T9. His best finish in four starts at The Open Championship is T30 in 2011 at Royal St. George's.
Jul 6 - 9:50 PM

Overnight co-leader Jason Day battled to a 4-over-par 36-38=74 in today's final round of the 115th U.S. Open to conclude at even-par 280 and a three-way tie for ninth.

Day, in a much-publicized struggle with Benign Positional Vertigo, was paired in the final group with Dustin Johnson. On his round, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation, but struggled on the greens, registering 35 putts. The Aussie overshadowed two birdies with three bogeys in a first-nine that included a three-putt at the fourth from 58 feet and a missed birdie from 4' at the par-3 ninth. The miss on nine took its toll, as he squared bogey on 10 to drop to 2-under total and then missed from 11'9" on the 13th, swallowing a double bogey-6, which knocked him out of the title picture. The 27-year-old, twice a runner-up in this championship (2011; 2013) soldiered on, playing his last five holes in even par to secure his fourth top 10 in this event (in five career appearances) and fifth on the season in 12 starts.

Jason Day is expected to withdraw from this week's Travelers Championship, according to Todd Lewis on Golf Channel.

Lewis also reported that Day left Chambers Bay with a neck brace to help alleviate vertigo. (Video showed the Aussie wearing it as he walked around in his civvies.) Day will seek additional treatment for whatever is ailing him. He took medications for the symptoms he suffered on Friday. That he placed T9 at the U.S. Open today is a marvel.
Jun 22 - 12:30 AM

Jason Day twirled a 2-under-par 37-31=68 in today's third round of the 115th U.S. Open to post a 54-hole aggregate of 4-under 206, assuming the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Day is tied for the 54-hole lead with Dustin Johnson, Branden Grace and Jordan Spieth.

Day, suffering from Benign Positional Vertigo, was a question mark to even play today after collapsing on his last hole in round two. He began the day in a three-way tie for ninth at 2-under, and three shots adrift of the 36-hole lead. The 27-year-old bogeyed Nos. 2 and 4 to turn in 2-over, but sparkled on his inward half, outbalancing a bogey on the 11th with five birdies. The Aussie, twice a runner-up at the U.S. Open (2013, 2011), played his last seven holes in bogey-free 4-under, including a dramatic walk-off on the last from six feet. Day's stats show 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, requiring 30 putts on the round. His longest conversion came from 18 feet at the par-3 17th. Afterwards, he admitted that his vertigo returned in spots over the final few holes. All things considered, it was an incredible effort and execution.
Jun 20 - 9:37 PM

In an update for Golf Channel, Todd Lewis reported that Jason Day has every intention to tee off in today's third round of the U.S. Open at 1:55 p.m. PT.

Nearly a full 24 hours will have elapsed between the time Day went down on the ninth hole on Friday and when he's scheduled to begin today. After Friday's scare, his agent, Bud Martin, released the following statement: ""Jason was diagnosed to have suffered from Benign Positional Vertigo. He was treated locally by Dr. Robert Stoecker and Dr. Charles Souliere and is resting comfortably. His condition is being monitored closely and he is hopeful he will be able to compete this weekend in the final rounds of the U.S. Open. He wants to thank all who treated him at the Franciscan Medical Group and thank all of the fans and friends who have reached out to he and his family."

Jason Day carded an even-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of the 115th U.S. Open, but he's fortunate to have been able to sign a scorecard after the round.

The theme of the week at Chambers Bay has been extremes. Suffice it to say that Day fulfilled a couple of them today. At first, it seemed that his experience at the par-5 first hole -- his 10th of the round -- was going to give him plenty of airtime on nightly highlight packages. After sending his second into a greenside bunker, his blast ran through the green before coming to rest 56 yards away. Unhappy but undeterred, he'd promptly hole out for the improbable birdie. After 17 holes, he was 1-under. His tee ball at the par-3 ninth settled in a greenside bunker. As he strode toward it, he slowly dropped to the ground. As we've been relaying to you, Day has been dealing with vertigo but hasn't been diagnosed with any greater problem. After a few minutes of treatment, he'd eventually escape from the bunker and two-putt for bogey. He was helped off the course and signed his card at 2-under 138, just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Scary stuff, but he gutted it out.
Jun 19 - 5:30 PM

Jason Day powered to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's opening round of the 115th U.S. Open.

This is extremely encouraging given the Aussie's recent health concern. He landed 15 greens in regulation and circled six birdies today. Day also incurred two bogeys and a double, but came to rest just three swings adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders. While Chambers Bay is quite different than a standard-issue U.S. Open track, his success in this tournament is well-documented. It's a testament to his short game and sheer will, but averaging 330.5 yards off the tee today didn't hurt.
