Defending champ Jason Day carved out a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of The Barclays to post 7-under 277, up one spot to T5 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Day finished in a three-way T4, two adrift of champion Patrick Reed and was the ONLY player to put four in the red this week.
The 28-year-old is the only player (thus far) with four sub-par rounds on the week at Bethpage Black. Third-round leader Rickie Fowler, still on the course, is the only one who can match him. The world No. 1 began the finale in a four-way T6, four shy of Fowler after rounds of 68-68-70. He struggled to six (of 14) fairways and is currently last (of 79 golfers) in that stat at 35.71 percent (20/56). The Aussie still hit 15 greens in regulation, circling four birdies against two bogeys for 1.800 putts per GIR and 1.433 SG: Putting. He's No. 1 in total birdies (19) and No. 1 in SGP (8.090). It's Day's 10th top 10 of the season in 17 starts, second straight (2nd, PGA), and third consecutive top-5 finish at The Barclays (fourth overall). Aug 28 - 5:35 PM

Defending champ and FedExCup leader Jason Day handed in a 1-under-par 35-35=70 after today's third round of The Barclays to post 5-under 208, down one spot into a four-way T6, four shy of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler.

The world No. 1 began the third frame in a five-way T5 on 4-under, four back of 36-hole leader Patrick Reed. Similar to the second round, he carded enough birdies, five, reaching the three-quarter pole T1 in total birdies with 15, but also similar to yesterday, he's dropping more shots than he would like. The Aussie squared four in R3, all on failed scrambles, but he only managed nine greens in regulation on 3 (of 14) fairways. He did toss up a wicked 3.353 in SG: Putting and leads in that stat with a cumulative 6.649. Day is tied DFL in driving accuracy however, at 33.33 percent (14/42).
Aug 27 - 6:31 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day roller-coastered his way around the Black Course at Bethpage State Park, scribbling a 1-under-par 34-36=70 by round's end, to reach the midpoint of The Barclays on 4-under 138.

Opening the day in a share of seventh place, the Aussie circled birdies in five of his first seven holes to reach 8-under on the week. He also saved pars from 13'10" and 9'2" over the stretch, as it looked like it was meant to be his day. Instead, he swallowed a bogey at the eighth and a double bogey at the par-4 ninth before making the turn. Day wasn't done sliding yet, as he squared bogeys at the par-4 10th and par-3 14th as well, managing one final birdie in-between. The only weakness in his game so far is with the driver, losing 2.509 strokes off-the-tee to rank 112th in the field through two days. While Day won't be pleased with his finish today, he also is quite lucky to survive some of his errant tee shots this week, as the thick rough at Bethpage Black is not known to be kind to any visitors. The 28-year-old will need to tidy things up off the tee if he wants to add an 11th PGA TOUR title to his resume.

World No. 1 Jason Day survived a poor driving day to record a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during round one of The Barclays, two strokes off the early lead.

The Aussie split just five (of 14) fairways, losing 1.78 strokes off-the-tee. He continually survived the inaccuracies thanks to some fantastic short-game play. His day can really be summed up by looking at the par-4 fourth hole. It was here that he found the native area way left off the tee, forcing him to take a penalty. From there, he pitched out to sit 166 yards from the hole, then stuck his approach to 12'5" and rolled it in to save par. Day was very fortunate to survive Bethpage Black with a red number, let alone 3-under 68. The 28-year-old will need to clean it up off the tee if he wants to keep his name near the top as the week progresses.
Aug 25 - 1:32 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day hoisted the hardware at the 2015 Barclays played at Plainfield Country Club and makes his way to Bethpage State Park this week for a chance to defend his title.

The Aussie lapped the field last year, tying the tournament record of 19-under-par 261 (68-68-63-62). He cleared second place, Henrik Stenson, by six strokes. This year he'll head to the Black Course at Bethpage State Park for his second look at the venue. Back in 2012 when Bethpage last hosted, he finished T24. The Aussie posted three red numbers but got derailed by a disappointing 6-over 77 on Moving Day. The big hiccup that round came at the par-5 13th when he swallowed a triple-bogey 8. This time around he arrives ranked first in the FedExCup (and in the Official World Golf Rankings). The 28-year-old remains a top-tier selection anytime he tees it up.

In a spirited title defense, World No. 1 Jason Day rallied for a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the 98th PGA Championship for a 72-hole aggregate of 13-under 267, but came up one short of 54-hole leader and eventual champ Jimmy Walker. UPDATE: Day retakes FedExCup lead by 34 points over Dustin Johnson.

The Aussie was making his seventh PGA appearance and departs with his fourth top 10. He was chasing his second major title in his 25th career major but settles for his fourth runner-up. The 28-year-old joined nine other players who had to play 36 holes on Sunday. He began the finale in solo second on 10-under, one shy of Walker. With no re-pairing between Rounds 3 and 4, Day played out of the penultimate twosome. He bobbled at the beginning with bogey-5s at Nos. 1 and 3, but rebounded to play his final 15 holes in blemish-free 5-under, circling birdies on 5, 9 and 11 (from 22'6"), and walking-off with eagle-3 from 13'11". Day's runner-up is his eighth in 187 career starts and his fifth top 5 of the season in 16 events.
Jul 31 - 8:10 PM

Defending champ Jason Day crafted a bogey-free 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the two-day third round of the 98th PGA Championship to reach 10-under 200, one back of 54-hole leader Jimmy Walker.

The World No. 1 was one of 10 who didn't get their third rounds underway until Sunday morning. He began the third frame on 7-under after opening his title defense in 68-65, two back of 36-hole co-leaders Walker and Robert Streb. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he landed eight (of 14) fairways and pelted 14 greens in regulation, circling birdies on Nos. 6, 9 and 18. The 28-year-old is going for his fourth win of the season and looking to become the first player since Padraig Harrington in 2008 to successfully defend a major championship title (The Open). He co-leads the field in GIR at 87.04 percent (47/54). With no re-pairing between rounds, the Aussie is scheduled in the penultimate twosome again in R4 at 3:07 p.m. ET.
Jul 31 - 12:17 PM

Defending champ Jason Day awoke to toss up a 5-under 34-31=65 in the second round of the 98th PGA Championship to reach 7-under 135, up six places to T3, two back of 36-hole co-leaders Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb.

The World No. 1 landed seven (of 14) fairways and after 17 greens in regulation in R1, he peppered 16 in R2, co-leading the field at 91.67 percent. He converted eight times, including SEVEN over an eight-hole stretch encompassing holes 8-15. The Aussie's split featured a 26'5" birdie-3 at the second, a 17'10" roll at the par-4 tenth, an 18'8" birdie-3 at the 13th, and a 37'1" bomb at the par-4 14th. His dropped shots were a 3-putt from 68'11" at the par-4 third and a sloppy double bogey-6 at the seventh. Day posted 1.563 putts per GIR and 2.850 in SG: Putting.
Jul 29 - 7:52 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day coasted to an opening-round 2-under-par 33-35=68 to sit three strokes off the early lead at this week's PGA Championship.

The Aussie entered the week with limited prep at the course, which led to a more conservative approach today. That style paid off as he splashed 17 greens in regulation. On the down side he did not leave himself many great birdie looks and he missed a few of those golden opportunities that we're not used to seeing him miss over the past 12 months. Day missed three putts from inside seven feet today, but also splashed home a 10'4" birdie at the fourth hole and 15'5" birdie at the 11th. With one practice round and one official round now under his belt at Baltusrol Golf Club, perhaps he will start to figure out the green complexes over the final three rounds this week. Despite a less-than-stellar putting performance, the defending champion is T8 on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.
Jul 28 - 3:29 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day hoisted the Wanamaker Trophy at the 2015 PGA Championship and makes his way to Baltusrol Golf Club this week for a chance to defend his title.

Played at Whistling Straits last year, Day put on a show at the 97th PGA Championship, beating Jordan Spieth by three strokes and clearing third place (Branden Grace) by five. This time around the Aussie arrives fresh off a T14 at the RBC Canadian Open and T22 at The Open, making this his third start in three weeks. The last time Day played three weeks in a row was THE PLAYERS in 2015. He posted rounds of 69-81 and slammed his trunk early that week. While fatigue can't be completely ignored, either can his form. The Aussie enters the week with eight top 10s in 15 starts this season, including three victories already. It goes without saying at this point in the season, but Day remains a top-tier option in all fantasy formats.

Defending champ Jason Day finished off his fourth RBC Canadian Open with a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 and a four-day tally of 7-under 281, up 17 places on the live leaderboard to T11 and just the second blemish-free round of the day. UPDATE: With play completed, Day finished T14.

With golf returning to the Olympics and the related shuffling of the tournament scheduling that placed the PGA Championship right behind the Canadian Open, the World No. 1 will be defending in back-to-back weeks. He opened this week in 69-76 to sit T47 at the midpoint on 1-over, one inside the cut line, but rebounded to play the weekend in 69-67, gaining eight shots to par over his final 24 holes. For the week, the Aussie totaled two eagles and 14 birdies against 11 bogeys. He's currently T39 in GIR at 59.72 percent (43/72) and 79th (of 80) in driving accuracy at 30.36 percent (17/56).
Jul 24 - 3:58 PM

Defending champ Jason Day struggled to a 4-over-par 36-40=76 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the midpoint on 1-over 145, down 36 places to T47, eight adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leaders Dustin Johnson and Luke List.

The World No. 1 opened with a 3-under 69 (one eagle, four birdies, three bogeys) but crashed back to earth in R2 at Glen Abbey GC. He managed only two (of 14) fairways and seven greens in regulation, losing 1.637 strokes off-the-tee and giving back 1.707 tee-to-green. The Aussie moved to 4-under total after a 13'10" birdie at the par-3 fourth, but didn't card another par breaker until the par-5 18th. In-between, he squared five bogey-5s, and bogeyed the par-3 12th, all on failed scrambles. Day's walk-off birdie at the last was some consolation, dropping in a 26-footer after hitting his drive 404 yards (downwind), thru the fairway and into the water. It moved him one stroke off the cut line.
Jul 22 - 7:39 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day makes his way back to Glen Abbey Golf Club this week for a chance to defend his 2015 RBC Canadian Open victory.

The RBC Ambassador posted rounds of 68-66-69-68 during the 2015 Canadian Open to snag his fourth career PGA TOUR victory. One year later, he arrives with 10 victories on his resume. In many ways, this event was the springboard that vaulted him into the zone. This time around, he has the PGA Championship fresh on the horizon. Knowing how the Aussie likes to arrive early at major championships and meticulously study the course conditions, it leaves some question marks in the minds of gamers as to where his head will be at this week. Despite the possible distraction of a major championship next week, Day remains the top option for gamers looking to start their rosters this week.

World No. 1 Jason Day orchestrated a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in the second round of the 145th Open Championship to post 1-over 143, 11 strokes in arrears to 36-hole leader Phil Mickelson.

The 28-year-old is making his sixth Open appearance with a best (and lone top 10) of T4 last year at St. Andrews. He opened with a disappointing 2-over 73 (two birdies, four bogeys) during the benign weather conditions on Thursday morning, and then rebounded to post one of the better rounds in Friday's afternoon wave which experienced the worst weather conditions of the week. Indicative on just how tough it was on Friday afternoon, his 1-under effort catapulted him 53 places on the leaderboard to T41. He kicked off with a bogey-5 at the first, but circled his four birdies on the round at Nos. 3 and 5-7 to turn 3-under. Day came home in birdie-less 2-over, squaring the 12th and 16th holes, totaling just eight greens in regulation but requiring only 25 putts.
Jul 15 - 3:09 PM

Jason Day faltered down the stretch on his way toward a 2-over-par 34-38=72 during the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, closing out the week in a share of third place at 3-under 277, three shots shy of the winner Dustin Johnson.

The World No. 1 opened the day in a co-lead with playing partner Scott Piercy. It looked like Day was ready to cruise to a fourth victory of the season after chipping in for eagle (47'7") at the par-5 second. He traded a bogey and a birdie at Nos. 9 and 10 to maintain control of the leaderboard (-7). Some poor ball-striking and uncharacteristically poor putting down the stretch is what did him in, though. He lipped out a 4'7" par attempt at the par-3 15th before an errant tee shot on the par-5 16th set up a disastrous double bogey. Despite a very generous ruling to give him a free drop, he attempted a miraculous shot that ended up in the water and ultimately ended his chance at winning the event. Day lost 3.223 strokes approaching-the-green during his final round, but still managed a career-best finish at Firestone Country Club (previously T4 in 2011).
