World No. 1 Jason Day steadied a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to open his week three off the early leader William McGirt.
The Aussie landed an impressive 14 greens in regulation, but was uncharacteristically calm with the putter. Day splashed in birdies from 11'3" and 10'10" on the par-3 second and par-3 15th, respectively, to play the par 3s at 2-under today. However, those were the only two putts he converted from outside seven feet, losing 0.12 strokes with the flat stick. Despite the cold putter, Day is T2 on the live leaderboard as he seeks for his first podium finish at Firestone Country Club. His previous best is a T4 (2011) in six tries. Jun 30 - 4:33 PM

Jason Day made a Sunday charge up the leaderboard before fizzling out to a 1-over-par 36-35=71, reaching 1-over 282 to settle for a T8 at this week's U.S. Open Championship.

The Aussie did not impress of the tee, today, missing 10 of the possible 14 fairways. Day survived the front nine with two bogey and a birdie. The fireworks started at the par-5 12th hole, though. It was here that he chipped in from 26 yards for an eagle and followed it up with a 14-footer for birdie at the par-3 13th. This put him at 1-under for the week and may have put a slight scare in the leaders who were sitting just three strokes ahead at the time. It was not to be, though, as he found bunker trouble at the risk-reward, par-4 17th. He went bunker-to-bunker and took three shots in the sand before even reaching the green and two-putting for a double bogey. Despite the late struggles, Day walked off the course at T8 on the leaderboard, in line for his fifth top 10 in six U.S. Open appearances.

World No. 1 Jason Day twirled a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the U.S. Open to reach the three-quarter mark on 1-over 211, up 38 places on the live leaderboard to T7, and tying the low round in the clubhouse with Branden Grace.

The FedExCup leader opened his sixth appearance in 76-69 to sit T45 on 5-over. With threesomes off split tees for R3, he went off No. 10 tee and birdied the 10th from off the green nine yards away from the target, and chased with three straight on holes 12-14, the latter dropping from 20 feet. The Aussie finished off a blemish-free first half with par putts of six feet at 15, eight feet at 16, and nine feet at the 18th. After the break, he squared bogey-5s at the third and seventh, but erased them with a 21-foot eagle-3 at the fourth, using the flat stick from the fringe.

Muirfield Village member Jason Day signed for a 4-under-par 33-35=68 after the third round of the Memorial Tournament to post 11-under 205, up one on the live leaderboard to T11, three back of 54-hole clubhouse leader William McGirt.

The World No. 1 bogeyed the second and doubled the 18th on failed scrambles. In-between, he circled seven birdies on 14 greens in regulation for 1.500 putts per GIR. Day's split featured four conversions from between 10 and 19 feet and had moved to within one of McGirt before a disastrous finish. He layed-up with iron off the tee at the par-4 18th to 208 yards out in the intermediate rough, and ultimately two-putted for double after taking two pitches to get on from 20 yards short of the green.
Jun 4 - 4:42 PM

Jason Day scrambled his way around Muirfield Village Golf Club, resulting in a 1-under-par 34-37=71, placing him T10 on the live leaderboard at 7-under 137.

Playing on his home course, the Aussie missed eight (of 14) fairways and landed just 10 greens in regulation. It's miraculous to see a red number with those stats, but 2.255 strokes gained putting will certainly help on a day when ball-striking is not there. Day splashed in seven putts from 6-to-8 feet. Four of those were to save par while one was a bogey save. He saved his best for last, though, as he fired in a 19'5" birdie bomb at the par-4 ninth to make lunch taste much better. In seven previous starts, Day has never signed three red numbers in the same week at Muirfield Village Golf Club, but he'll have two chances to change that over the weekend, following rounds of 66-71 to open the week.
Jun 3 - 1:37 PM

Jason Day torched his home course, Muirfield Village Golf Club, to the tune of a 6-under-par 34-32=66 during the opening round of this week's Memorial, placing him two shots off the lead through day one.

The Aussie arrived with wins in seven of his last 17 starts, but he's never finished better than T27 here at Muirfield Village. In 22 previous competitive rounds at this venue, his best was a 67 (R1/2010; R1/2009). Day put that poor course history behind him today as he striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. His flat stick added it's fair share, as well, but didn't convert any putts from outside 10'2". The highlight of the round came at the par-5 15th hole where he piped a perfect drive, stuck his 219-yard approach to 7'11", and rolled it in for a nice eagle three. Day is off to the races yet again, but 54 holes remain on his quest to hoist another trophy.
Jun 2 - 6:13 PM

Overnight leader and World No. 1 Jason Day orchestrated a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in today's final round of THE PLAYERS for a 72-hole aggregate of 15-under 273, good for a four-shot victory over Kevin Chappell and his 10th PGA TOUR title in his 181st career start and seventh in his last 17 events.

This is Day's third win of the season on just 10 starts and second in wire-to-wire fashion, having also claimed the Arnold Palmer in that manner. It was his 12th career 54-hole lead/co-lead and has now converted six times, including his last five straight. The Aussie began the finale on 14-under (63-66-73), four clear of three players, including playing competitor Hideki Matsuyama, who shot 73. Similar to R3, he bobbled on his first half, stumbling to a birdie-less two-bogey 38, but similar to his R3 effort again, came home without a bogey, circling holes 10, 12 and 16. The 28-year-old did not drop a single shot on the back-nine at TPC Sawgrass all week and became just the fourth player since 1970 to win wire-to-wire twice in one season, first since Tiger Woods in 2002.
May 15 - 7:04 PM

Second-round leader Jason Day conjured up a 1-over-par 39-34=73 in today's third round of THE PLAYERS for a 54-hole tally of 14-under 202, good for a four-shot lead over three players.

Day was the 18-hole leader after opening with a course-record-tying low 63, and took two days to complete his second-round 66 for a 36-hole tournament record on 15-under 129, four clear of Shane Lowry. He squared a 3-putt bogey-4 at the third, his first bogey of the week (39th hole), and doubled the sixth and the eighth, the former a 4-putt from 17'10". The Aussie got two back with birdies at 7 and 9 to turn 3-over and two more with birdie-4s at the 11th (from 3'8") and the 16th, though missing eagle from 6'5". He made three par putts from between six and 10 feet, but the most memorable par-save came at the 15th, where he pitched-in from 53'1" away. After 24 putts in R1/R2, Day needed 32 in R3 on an extremely difficult course setup.
May 14 - 7:40 PM

First-round leader Jason Day fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of THE PLAYERS and at 15-under 129, sets a new 36-hole tournament record, supplanting the previous mark of 14-under 63-67=130 held by countryman Greg Norman (1994).

The World No. 1 was one of 33 that were stranded on Friday due to darkness. He was bogey-free 5-under thru 14 holes of his second frame and 14-under total when the horn sounded. When play resumed on Saturday morning, the 28-year-old picked up right where he left off, rolling in a 15-footer on the par-4 15th for his sixth birdie of the round and third straight. He missed birdie from 10'1" at the par-5 16th, two-putted for par on the 17th from 53'3", and scrambled for a closing par on the 18th for a four-shot cushion heading to R3, also a record. The Aussie is blemish-free thru 36 holes and leads in total birdies (15) and SGP with a cumulative 5.497, including 2.482 in R2 at last check.
May 14 - 10:28 AM

The second round of THE PLAYERS was suspended at 7:57 p.m. ET due to darkness with players due back in position at 9:15 a.m. Saturday. UPDATE: The second round resumed as scheduled at 9:15 a.m. Saturday.

An earlier delay of 2 hours, 2 minutes due to lightning in the area was the culprit on Friday at TPC Sawgrass. Thirty-three of 71 in the afternoon wave were stranded (one WD), with overnight pace-setter Jason Day still the leader on the course, now at 14-under total. He was bogey-free 5-under thru 14 holes of his second frame when the horn sounded. When play resumes, the World No. 1 will be hitting his second to the par-4 15th from 107 yards away in the fairway. The third round is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. with threesomes off split tees.
May 13 - 8:30 PM

Jason Day fired a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-32=63 during the opening round of THE PLAYERS, matching the course record and taking control of the early lead.

You could tell it was going to be a special day when the Aussie rolled in a 30'2" birdie bomb at the par-4 10th hole to kick off his round. He followed that up with back-to-back circles at the 11th and 12th holes. He added four more putts made from outside 10 feet by round's end. Day was not playing out of the short stuff for most of the day, as he split just eight (of 14) fairways but still managed to land 15 greens in regulation. As good as his putting was (+2.726 SGP), his approach play was even better. With this 9-under 63, Day joins Martin Kaymer, Roberto Castro, Greg Norman, and Fred Couples as co-course record holders. His previous low at TPC Sawgrass was a 4-under 68 (R4/2011, R4/2013).
May 12 - 1:41 PM

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.
Apr 30 - 10:53 AM

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.
Apr 28 - 6:37 PM

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.
