Jason Day hopes to keep the putter hot ahead of The Presidents Cup this week in Incheon, Korea.
Day arrives on the heels of a memorable summer. His putter caught fire and it never cooled off as he hoisted the trophy in four of his last seven starts of the 2014-15 season. He won't be playing for individual honor this week, as he represents the International team for the third straight edition. In the past, he's recorded a Presidents Cup record of 4-4-2. Given his current form, it would be very surprising to see that number decline over the next week. Oct 6 - 9:18 AM

Jason Day signed for a 2-under-par 34-34=68 after today's final round of the TOUR Championship to post 2-under 278, currently T11 on the leaderboard and projecting third in the final FedExCup standings.

Day began his final frame at even-par (T10) and eight adrift of Jordan Spieth. After his win at last week's BMW Championship, his fourth in his last six starts, the Aussie became the 19th player to reach world No. 1. Four have won in their first start in the top spot and Day did not come close to becoming the fifth. To his credit, he battled hard in the finale, circling four birdies against two bogeys, but he'll look back at his par-5 scoring, where he recorded only one par breaker (in the first round) on eight chances. With Spieth holding a three-shot lead on the course, Day's reign as the FedExCup points leader and world's best appears to have lasted one week. Nonetheless, a career season for the 27-year-old, registering five wins on 20 starts, including his first major championship.
Sep 27 - 4:39 PM

Jason Day sleepwalked to an even-par 36-34=70 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship to reach the three-quarter pole at even-par 210.

The FedExCup points leader has quickly become an afterthought in the Playoffs finale, sitting eight adrift of Jordan Spieth with 18 holes remaining. Notable for several reasons, first, Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the FEC standings, who all control their own destiny, including Spieth at No. 2, are all ahead of the Aussie on the 54-hole leaderboard. Second, specifically as it pertains to Spieth, Day is in a head-to-head for Player of the Year honors. The 27-year-old's career low in 19 rounds at East Lake is 67, which he's shot five times previous. He began Saturday's play at even-par (T9) and nine adrift. The five-time winner this season needed something more akin to his personal best to get into contention, but mustered a two-bogey against two-birdie effort to fall off the pace.
Sep 26 - 6:35 PM

Jason Day answered his opening 69 at the TOUR Championship with a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in today's second round to post even-par 140 at the halfway point.

Once again, the Aussie opened with a birdie at the par-4 first hole at East Lake, but he'd erase it and another (from 12'2" at the par-4 12th) with three bogeys the rest of the way today. Overall, he split only five (of 14) fairways and landed 10 greens in regulation, so that he didn't score higher is a mild victory. He walked off positioned two strokes off the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. Of course, he's the FedExCup points leader, so he's one of the five who can win the FedExCup with a win in the season finale.
Sep 25 - 5:23 PM

Jason Day opened the TOUR Championship with a 1-under-par 34-35=69.

The FedExCup points leader showed why he's No. 1 with birdies on his first three holes, a run sparked by a conversion from 13'7" at the par-4 first hole. However, a 7 at the par-4 fifth wiped the handiwork away. On the par 4, Day found trouble off the tee and needed to hit another ball from the box en route to the triple. He'd pick off two more birdies, but dropped another shot with a bogey at the par-4 16th. He signed his card sitting six strokes off Henrik Stenson's overnight pace. In a tournament like this, one hole can mean everything, but if there's a guy who can overcome today's disappointment maybe better than anyone right now, it's the world's top-ranked golfer.
Sep 24 - 6:16 PM

Newly crowned World No. 1 Jason Day heads to East Lake Golf Club for his fifth appearance in the TOUR Championship.

Day is a five-time winner on TOUR this season in 19 starts, including hoisting the hardware in four of his last six events. His six-shot romp at last week's BMW joined a six-shot romp at The Barclays and a three-shot win at the 97th PGA Championship, where his 20-under total supplanted the previous low 72-hole total in a major. The FEC points leader was T4 after 54 holes in 2014 at East Lake and T3 after 54 holes in 2011 so he's been in the hunt in Atlanta before. The Aussie is in a serious battle with Jordan Spieth for Player of the Year honors as well as the Byron Nelson Award and Vardon Trophy with an Adjusted Scoring Average of 69.163 vs. Spieth's 68.984.
Sep 22 - 10:28 AM

Overnight leader Jason Day strolled to a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the BMW Championship to resoundingly claim the title at 22-under 262, six shots clear of runner-up Daniel Berger.

The FedExCup points leader went wire-to-wire at the BMW to win for the seventh time in 170 PGA TOUR starts. In addition to an unconscious third victory in his last four events, converting 54-hole leads at each, Day became just the fourth player in TOUR history to win four times over a six-tournament stretch. The 27-year-old circled just three birdies in the finale against one bogey, but he carried a six-shot advantage --largest 54-hole lead on TOUR this season -- into the finale after opening in 61-63-69. The Aussie went virtually unchallenged on Sunday and finished the week T1 in eagles (2), first in birdies (25), first in driving distance (312.7), first in strokes gained: tee-to-green (cumulative 11.800), and an astonishing 15.978 in strokes gained: total. Oh, and in addition to claiming the hardware at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Illinois, today, Day ascends to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Sep 20 - 6:11 PM

Jason Day settled for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 during the BMW Championship's third round, taking a six-shot lead into the final round.

The overnight leader battled with Conway Farms Golf Club after back-to-back low rounds. The relative struggles all started off the tee today, as he split just seven (of 14) fairways. With tough pin placements, the course was less forgiving out of the thick stuff today, which explains how Day racked up four bogeys in his third walk around Conway Farms. It's hard to imagine a scenario where Day doesn't get crowned as the BMW champion tomorrow, but stranger things have happened in this crazy game called golf. Incidentally, his 20-under 193 falls five shots off the 54-hole record on the PGA TOUR.
Sep 19 - 6:36 PM

First-round leader Jason Day followed his opening 61 at the BMW Championship with an 8-under-par 32-31=63 to post 18-under 124 at the break, good for a five-stroke margin entering the weekend.

The curse of chasing a low round with another has nothing on Day. And he exited in style today, converting eagle from 42'8" at the par-5 18th for his eight par breaker of the round. All of the others were birdies, including rolls of 18'6" and 15'8" at Nos. 3 and 12, respectively. The Aussie's only miscue occurred at the par-4 13th where he missed the green and couldn't salvage par from just outside 10 feet. He's split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation in each round and it didn't hurt that lift, clean and place was in effect. Day's 36-hole aggregate equals the PGA TOUR record for lowest to open an event. Pat Perez also opened 61-63 at the 2009 CareerBuilder Challenge (née Bob Hope Classic). David Toms rung up a pair of 62s to open the CPI at Colonial in 2011. Both went on to win those tournaments. The all-time record for lowest 54-hole aggregate is 188 by Steve Stricker (60-66-62) at the 2010 John Deere Classic.
Sep 18 - 4:54 PM

Jason Day returned to Conway Farms Golf Club this morning to finish his opening round of the BMW Championship, signing for a 10-under-par 32-29=61, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

Fifty-two golfers were back on site at 7:30 a.m. CT to resume the second round in Lake Forest, Illinois. Many eyes were on the Aussie as he sized up a 44-yard pitch at the par-4 ninth hole. It was for 59. His try was on target but it came to rest just inside 10 feet short of the hole. After a two-putt, Day settled for a career low in 565 rounds on the PGA TOUR. Overall, he piped nine (of 14) fairways and totaled 14 greens in regulation. The highlight of his loop occurred at the par-4 first hole where he jarred an 80-yard approach from a bunker for eagle. He complemented it with nine birdies, including conversions from 37'6" and 20'6" at Nos. 13 and 2, respectively. His only blemish was a three-putt bogey from 42'3" at the par-3 17th. At the time he walked off, he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 5.735, but he also ranked fourth in strokes gained: putting at 3.041.
Sep 18 - 8:50 AM

FedExCup leader Jason Day hit the wall in the third round at the Deutsche Bank Championship posting a 2-over-par 37-36=73 for a three-day aggregate of 4-under 209.

Day's 22 consecutive rounds of par-or-better, dating back to the final round of the U.S. Open (June 21st), came to end today. It was the longest such streak on TOUR this season. Despite hitting 10 (of 14) fairways and landing 14 greens in regulation, the Aussie registered a -0.860 in strokes gained: putting. He squared three bogeys and a double bogey-6 at the drivable par-4 fourth to outpace three birdies at Nos. 7, 12 and 18. In his post-round news conference (see link below), Day stated, "That he just came out a little flat, there's no excuse for poor play and mental errors... wish I had a little bit more energy. Just really couldn't get anything going." Tomorrow's another day for the 27-year-old, who sits T25 on the leaderboard, down 15 places on the round.
Sep 6 - 9:18 PM

FedExCup leader Jason Day twirled a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 6-under 136, six off the pace of 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman.

Winner in three of his last four starts, Day has not let off the gas, sitting third in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Should his putter catch up with him, currently 44th in strokes gained: putting thru two rounds at 0.045, he'll be adding more hardware to the mantle at tournament's end. In 31 career rounds at TPC Boston, the Aussie has now played his last 11 rounds at par-or-better with nine of them sub-par rounds. And that's not even including his two best showings, a T3 in 2011 and a T2 in 2010. Today's loop added four birdies to his five-birdie total on day one, but he squared just one bogey against two yesterday. He's 4-for-4 in sand saves thru two rounds, including one today at the par-5 finisher. Had he failed, he would have concluded with bogey in each of his first two rounds. The 27-year-old sits joint 10th on the leaderboard heading into the final 36 holes.
Sep 5 - 7:57 PM

Jason Day signed for a 3-under-par 32-36=68 following his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead with Gary Woodland and Ryan Palmer.

Last week's champ got after it again early at TPC Boston today. He opened birdie-birdie-birdie, the last dropping from a round-long 19'9" at the par-4 12th hole. He added birdies at Nos. 2 and 4, but would square bogeys at the par-4 fifth and ninth holes to quash thoughts of the outright lead. However, he averted a third bogey with a par save from 11'2" at the par-4 13th. Overall, Day piped nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. In addition to his quest for a fourth victory in his last five starts, the FedExCup points leader is gunning to become the sixth golfer to win consecutive starts in Playoffs' history.
Sep 4 - 2:31 PM

Overnight co-leader Jason Day roasted Plainfield Country Club with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 to conclude his eighth appearance at 19-under 261, the lowest 72-hole aggregate in the nine-year history of The Barclays in the FedExCup Playoffs format, and a six-shot victory over runner-up Henrik Stenson.

After opening in 68-68-63, Day began championship Sunday sharing the lead with playing partner Sangmoon Bae. On his round, he landed seven (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation, registering a sterling 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.830 in strokes gained: putting. The Aussie circled eight on the card in the finale, finishing the week with 21 birdies (T2 in that stat), an eagle, and first in the field with just four bogeys. His 62 matches the low round of the tournament and matches his career best as well. Day rode his 20th consecutive round of par-or-better to his sixth career title (168 starts), fourth this season, and third in his last four starts. It's also his second straight 54-hole lead/co-lead that he's converted, including his win at the PGA Championship in his last event. The 27-year-old takes over the FedExCup lead with the win, supplanting Jordan Spieth, who missed the cut.
Aug 30 - 6:14 PM

Jason Day authored a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of The Barclays to reach the three-quarter pole at 11-under 199, good for share of the clubhouse lead with Sangmoon Bae. UPDATE: With play completed, Day shares a one-stroke lead with Bae heading into Sunday's final round.

Day had played 20 holes without a blemish prior to squaring bogey at the par-4 17th, the result of finding trouble off the tee. He started a new streak with a 10'6" sidewinder at the par-4 18th for his seventh par breaker of the round. The Aussie began Moving Day in a seven-way tie for eighth at 4-under, three adrift and playing with Bae five groups ahead of 36-hole leader Bubba Watson. On his loop, he landed eight (of 14) fairways, for a third consecutive round, and hit 15 greens in regulation, circling six birdies and an eagle-3 for 1.533 putts per GIR. The 27-year-old's 63 is his best at The Barclays in 30 career rounds, besting a 64 he shot in last year's edition (Ridgewood CC) where he finished tied runner-up after co-leading thru 54 holes.
