Jason Day authored a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in today's opening round of The Barclays and sits just three strokes in arrears of the threesome sharing the clubhouse lead.
While he exhibited discomfort at times, the Aussie managed his game well at Plainfield today. He withdrew from Wednesday's pro-am with a sore back, but hit 16 greens in regulation in the lid-lifter. That yielded three birdies, including a fem from 21'10" at the par-4 fifth hole. Day dropped only one shot when he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker at the par-5 16th.

Jason Day withdrew from today's pro-am at The Barclays, due to a sore back suffered on Tuesday evening.

The tournament issued a press release. Here it is in its entirety: "'Jason tweaked his back moving an item under his motor coach last night. This is a precautionary withdrawal for a long-standing disc issue,' said Cornel Driessen, Day's physiotherapist and trainer. Day, ranked No. 2 in the FedExCup standings, is resting today with the goal of playing The Barclays. He has an 8:26 a.m. (ET) tee time on Thursday with Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson. Day is replaced in the pro-am by Brendan Steele." Slotted second in the FedExCup standings, the Aussie will advance to the Playoffs finale, so he doesn't need to risk it if he's not 100 percent. With a deep field assembled at Plainfield Country Club this week, it's advised to consider other strong options if they're available to you.

Overnight leader Jason Day painted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the 97th PGA Championship to claim the title at 20-under 268, a tournament and major championship record in relation to par, and three shots better than runner-up Jordan Spieth.

This marks the eighth time Day has held at least a share of the 54-hole lead on the PGA TOUR. His only conversion to date was at the 2010 HP Byron Nelson, his first of now five victories. He padded that in a big way today, snaring his first major title in his 167th career start and 21st major appearance. Day began the finale at 15-under, two clear of Spieth with whom he was paired. With birdie at the par-5 second, Day moved three up and followed with an eight-footer at the fifth, a four-footer at six, and a 48-foot bomb at the seventh to reach 19-under, thus becoming just the third player in major championship history to touch that mark. After squaring bogey at the eighth, he saved par from 9'9" on the ninth to avoid back-to-backs. It was perhaps the most important putt of his career. The 27-year-old added circles on 11, 14 and 16 to move to 20-under and took a three-shot lead to the 18th. A two-putt par on the last was all the Aussie would need for glory.

Jason Day authored a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the 97th PGA Championship to post 15-under 201, good for a two-shot margin over Jordan Spieth with whom he'll be paired in the final group on Sunday.

Playing in the final pairing today with Matt Jones, Day began the festivities in solo second and two back of his fellow Aussie. He piped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation for a cumulative, three-day total of 14.753 in strokes gained: tee-to-green, first in the field in that stat. Day held a two-shot lead thru 14 holes by hiding two bogeys with seven birdies and an eagle-3 at the par-5 11th. He played a six-hole stretch on Nos. 9-14 in 6-under before squaring double on the 15th from the fairway. At the 16th, he was just over the green at the par 5 in two, but took three to get down from 10 yards. Day fought back with a bomb from 26'9" for birdie on the 17th. The 27-year-old's 66 today matches the same score he shot in round three at the 2010 PGA, where he entered the final round tied fourth, eventually finishing T10 after a final-round 74.
Aug 15 - 8:41 PM

Jason Day backed up his opening 68 at the 97th PGA Championship with a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round to post 9-under 135, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He walked off with a bogey at the par-4 18th hole, but Day connected for seven birdies prior to it. His longest that began its roll on the putting surface measured just 10 feet at the par-5 second hole, but he also circled zero-putt birdies from the fringe six yards and three yards away at at the par-4 sixth and 13th holes, respectively. For the tournament, the Aussie is bogey-free 8-under on the quartet of par 5 with an eagle. Gamers are in love with this guy when he's healthy and we know as much as he's stated it; it's only a matter of time before he's a major champion.

Boosted by an eagle-3 at the second hole, Jason Day put up a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in round one of the 97th PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.

That means Day has opened with a round in the 60s for the fifth major running so, once more, he has the foundation to make a run at the title. The Aussie, who hit 15 greens in regulation, converted from 24'7" at the 14th for his opening birdie of the round and tapped in for another at 16. He made his big move with a superb approach at the par-5 2nd, draining an 11-footer for eagle before picking off another birdie at the par-5 5th. Day's only birdie of the round came at the 6th before he closed with three straight pars to finish two behind clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson.
Aug 13 - 2:26 PM

Jason Day settled for a 1-under-par 31-38=69 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Any red number at Firestone is welcome, but Day opened the finale with a birdie from just inside 40 feet at the par-4 first hole. He added birdies at Nos. 2 and 3, and then another at the par-4 eighth to sit bogey-free 4-under. However, he played out the string in birdie-free 3-over with three bogeys, including a three-putt from just outside 43 feet at the par-4 17th hole. The Aussie parred the par-5 16th for the first time all week, but he gave back five shots on it in his first three rounds. At the time he walked off today at 3-under 277, he sat seven strokes behind the tournament leader and one off the pace of the 72-hole clubhouse co-leaders. If Day is going to emerge with his first trophy in a major, he'll need to turn the page quickly from today's late letdown. For what it's worth, he tied for 10th at Whistling Straits in his PGA Championship debut in 2010.
Aug 9 - 5:06 PM

Jason Day signed for an even-par 34-36=70 following his third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Oh, that 16th hole at Firestone Country Club's South Course. At 667 yards, it's the longest on the PGA TOUR and it hasn't been eagled since Søren Hansen holed out from 102 yards in the 2008 edition. And it's that hole that has been Day's bane all week. It was the site of one of his three bogeys on Thursday and was the spot where he gave back his only shot on Friday. He arrived at it today sitting bogey-free 3-under with three birdies, including conversions from 16 feet and 33'5" at Nos. 11 and 15, respectively, but the Aussie tripled the par-5 beast. He knocked two approaches into the pond fronting the target and eventually connected from 22'1" for the snowman. A par save from 13'6" at the par-4 ninth averted further damage. He's 2-under 208, seven strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 8 - 5:17 PM

Jason Day chased his opening 69 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with another in today's second round to post 2-under 138 at the midpoint, six strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Aussie isn't so much contending as he is maximizing on his survival. Day found only two (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation at Firestone Country Club today. Lo and behold, his only bogey occurred on a par 5. Granted, it came at the difficult 16th hole, but he yanked his drive deep into the trees left of the fairway to set up the square. He birdied the other par 5 (No. 2) and added a bounce-back 3 at the 17th to snipe the red number. Day's longest conversion dropped for par, naturally, from 14'3" at the par-4 13th hole.
Aug 7 - 6:26 PM

Jason Day opened with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in round one of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio.

That's five successive rounds in the 60s for the Aussie, the previous four taking him to victory in the RBC Canadian Open on his last PGA TOUR start two weeks ago. Today, he split just 7 (of 14) fairways and hit only 11 greens in regulation but managed to trumped three bogeys with four birdies. Day did get it to 3-under with a birdie from 6'9" at the par-3 fifth hole, his 14th, but slipped back after dropped shots at the seventh and eighth. The Ohio resident is currently two strokes behind clubhouse leader Rickie Fowler.
Aug 6 - 2:47 PM

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).
Jul 25 - 7:54 PM

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.
Jul 24 - 12:28 PM

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.
