World No. 6 Jason Day authored a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to reach 4-under 69-67=136, up seven spots on the live leaderboard to T10, three back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Justin Thomas.
The 29-year-old is making his seventh appearance with three prior top 10s, including a best of T4 in 2014. Today's lap was his 23rd at East Lake GC and the seventh time he's shot 67, which is his low. The Aussie checked in at 16th in the FedExCup standings, beginning the Playoffs with T6-T25 and solo 4th last week at the BMW where he was T2 thru 54 holes. He conjured six (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.119 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.434 tee-to-green. The Columbus, Ohio, resident circled six at Nos. 3, 6, 8, 10, 16 and 18, taking some luster off with a hat-trick of bogeys at 12-14. He recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.292 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. Sep 22 - 5:19 PM

Past champ and World No. 9 Jason Day patched together a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the BMW Championship to finish up on 16-under 268, down two places to solo 4th, a distant seven in arrears of wire-to-wire winner Marc Leishman (67), but climbs 13 spots to 15th in the FedExCup standings.

The Aussie was a wire-to-wire winner here in 2015 but couldn't catch his countryman. After opening in 64-65-70, he began T2 five back. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he kicked off with seven straight pars before a three-birdie train on holes 8-10. The 29-year-old gave two back at the par-3 11th (tee ball in the water), circled birdie-3s at 12, 15 and 16, but bogeyed each of the two back-nine par 5s. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.775 strokes around-the-green and 0.139 on-the-green. Day posted 1.545 putts per GIR, No. 1 for the week in that stat (1.452), and took 25 total putts. He had 95 total putts for the week, the lowest amount of any player this season. This is Day's 10th top-5 finish in 34 FEC Playoffs events which is the most all-time, separating from Dustin Johnson and Tiger Woods with nine each. He's opened the postseason in T6-T25-4.

Past champ and World No. 9 Jason Day sleepwalked to a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in the third round of the BMW Championship, falling five adrift of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Marc Leishman on 14-under 199.

After opening in 64-65, the 2015 winner began T2, three back of Leishman. Playing out of the final twosome, he found nine (of 14) fairways and conjured eight greens in regulation, losing 1.261 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.745 tee-to-green. The 29-year-old squared a lone bogey-4 at 11, slightly outpaced by two birdie-3s at 7 and 9, both from inside of six feet. He posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 1.165 SG: Putting, taking 25 total putts. Day, projecting at 8th in the FedExCup standings, is looking for his 11th TOUR title in 210 career starts, first since his wire-to-wire win at the 2016 PLAYERS.
Sep 16 - 6:45 PM

Past champ and World No. 9 Jason Day rode two back-nine eagles to a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the BMW Championship to post 13-under 129, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead and tying the low round of the day thus far with two others. UPDATE: With play completed, Day is T2, three back of leader Marc Leishman.

The 29-year-old was the 36-hole leader in 2015 by five (61-63), finishing up with twin 69s to win by six and tying the tournament's aggregate scoring record (262). Today's loop featured five birdies, four in a five-hole stretch, a pitch-in eagle-3 at 14 from 28'7" away, and an ace at the 188-yard par-3 17th (7-iron). The Aussie missed birdie at the par-5 18th from 6'7" and squared holes 2, 4 and 12, all on failed scrambles. He found seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 2.545 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.220 tee-to-green. Day's split included two conversions from between 12 and 31 feet, posting a sterling 1.182 putts per GIR and 1.861 SG: Putting, needing just 21 total putts.

Past champion Jason Day fought through a balky back to fire a 7-under-par 33-31=64 in round one of the BMW Championship, claiming solo second on the live leaderboard, two off the pace of fellow Aussie Marc Leishman.

The 2015 champion at Conway Farms Golf Club swallowed an early bogey but it was all feasting after that. The highlight came at the par-5 eighth where he stuck his 206-yard approach to 3'4" for a stress-free eagle. He was noticeably struggling with a stiff back as he made the turn but that's when Day shines brightest. He circled five birdies on the homeward nine with the final three circles coming on putts from inside five feet. Day is playing his first round without longtime bagman Colin Swatton beside him, making this even more impressive. Starting the week at 28th in the FedExCup standings, Day is well on his way to East Lake after this start.

Jason Day preps for this week's BMW Championship without his usual caddie by his side.

Day has used his longtime coach Colin Swatton as his caddie but he's making a switch this week. It's uncertain as of now whether this is a long-term decision. George Savaricas of Golf Channel shared the news via Twitter, "Have it confirmed @JDayGolf is making a change on the bag this week @BMWchamps will have Luke Reardon caddy for him." Reardon is a friend and former roommate at the golf academy they both attended back home in Australia. This could be an attempt to kickstart his slow season or it could just be a scheduling conflict for Swatton. We will update when more information is released. Day enters the week ranked 28th in the FedExCup race, going winless in his last 27 starts. On the bright side, Day has a win and a T4 in two trips to Conway Farms, so he should be very comfortable navigating the course this week.
Sep 13 - 8:41 AM

Past champ and World No. 9 Jason Day tossed up a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to conclude on 5-under 275, up 17 places to T5 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Day finished T6.

The 2014 winner, who arrived off T9 at the PGA Championship, was making his 10th appearance and posts a ninth top 25, fifth top 10 and potentially a fifth top 5, fourth straight. Overall, this was his 32nd Playoffs event, winning two times, most recently the 2015 BMW Championship at Conway Farms. After kicking off in 69-71-68, the 29-year-old began T22 on 2-under, two shy of the overnight top 10. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and mustered 10 greens in regulation, gaining 0.731 strokes around-the-green and 1.294 tee-to-green. The Aussie squared a lone bogey-6 at No. 3, outpaced by four circles at 9 and a hat-trick at 11-13, highlighted by a 21-footer for birdie-3 at 12. He registered 1.600 putts per GIR and 3.556 SG: Putting, taking just 25 total putts.

Past champ and World No. 7 Jason Day rebounded for a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to conclude on 1-under 283, up seven spots to T9, seven in arrears of champion Justin Thomas.

After opening in 70-66, the 2015 winner (Whistling Straits) was T3 at the midpoint but dropped to T16 after a third-round 77, which ended with bogey-4 and quadruple bogey-8. He conjured six (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, losing 0.581 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 2.447 around-the-green. The 29-year-old squared three bogeys at Nos. 3, 7 and 12, offset by four circles at 1, 5, 14 and 15, three from inside of 11 feet and holing out from a greenside bunker at the par-4 first from 43'2" away. He recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and -0.428 SG: Putting. This was the Aussie's sixth top 25 in eight PGA's and fifth top 10, third straight. It was his 18th top 25 in 29 major appearances and 14th top 10, first in the four majors this season (T22, Masters).

World No. 7 Jason Day blitzed Quail Hollow Club in round two of the PGA Championship, walking off in darkness with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 to his name, placing him two off the pace with a two-day tally of 6-under 136.

It looked like it was going to be a rough day for the Aussie out of the gate, swallowing a bogey at the third while not giving himself a single scoring chance inside 20 feet over his opening six holes. That changed in a big way at the par-5 seventh where stuck his 185-yard approach to 21 inches for a tap-in eagle. That opened the floodgates as he picked up three straight birdies on the heels of that eagle, all from inside 19 feet. Day didn't require close approaches all day, though, as he added a 46'5" birdie bomb at the par-3 13th, in very Day-like fashion. After two rounds, Day has provided a balanced attack, gaining 3.685 strokes off-the-tee, 3.501 strokes approaching-the-green, and 4.396 strokes putting.
Aug 11 - 8:43 PM

Battling through a back injury, Jason Day still managed a 4-under-par 30-36=66 during round two of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, climbing 27 spots to sit in a share of sixth place on 3-under 137.

The Aussie was showing signs of a back injury right from the start, but didn't let that slow him down today. He kicked off his day with a three-hole birdie train that included two putts converted from the 22-to-26 foot range with a 14'8" hole out in-between. The short-game highlights would continue all day, holing out from 25 feet to save par at the seventh and then adding a 34'6" birdie bomb at the par-4 ninth. Day would miss a few putts from inside seven feet but still gained 2.665 strokes putting on the day in addition to the 1.302 strokes gained around-the-green. Gamers should monitor the back situation but otherwise it looks like Day is building up some much needed momentum before the season's final major.
Aug 4 - 7:11 PM

Jason Day twirled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65 during round three of The 146th Open, soaring up the leaderboard to reach even-par 210 after 54 holes.

There were concerns of a nagging wrist injury early in the week, but Day looked fully fit today. In typical Day fashion, he split just six (of 14) fairways but still managed 12 greens in regulation and needed just 27 putts to make his way around Royal Birkdale. This round goes in the books as a new personal best at The Open, eclipsing an opening-round 66 which came at the 2015 edition. Days sits just outside the top 10 at the time he walked off the course but with prime scoring conditions, gamers should expect to see his position drop on the leaderboard before the day is done.
Jul 22 - 10:37 AM

Jason Day has had three weeks to regroup following a pair of missed cuts as he preps for this week's Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

The Aussie hasn't been his consistent self this season but looked to be rounding into form after a runner-up finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson followed by a T15 at the Memorial (a career best for him at Muirfield Village). However, he fell back into a rut with back-to-back missed cuts, first at the U.S. Open and then at the Travelers Championship. Prolonged slumps are not the norm for Day, who hasn't finished outside the top 25 in back-to-back majors since 2012. The Aussie is flying way under the radar this week, but gamers should still consider him as a contrarian option with top-tier upside.

Making his third appearance, first since T18 in 2014, World No. 4 Jason Day patched together an even-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the Travelers Championship and at 2-over 72-70=142, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 85 players from a field of 156 made the 36-hole cut of even-par 140 (17, T69 on the number), so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. Day, a pre-tourney 11/1 outright, was the highest up the bookmaker's food chain to exit early, and after a MC at last week's U.S. Open by nine (79-75), he's now missed consecutive cuts for the first time since the Memorial and THE PLAYERS in 2015, 107 and 111 weeks ago, respectively. The 29-year-old cancelled four birdies with four bogeys in R2 on 10 greens in regulation after opening with three birdies against three bogeys and double bogey-6 in R1. Other notable departures include: 141- Trey Mullinax .. 142- 2-time champ Bubba Watson; Harris English .. 143- Lucas Glover; 2013 champ Ken Duke .. 144- Zach Johnson; Jhonattan Vegas .. 145- Justin Thomas.

World No. 3 Jason Day has found a bit of form ahead of his appointment at Erin Hills Golf Course for this week's U.S. Open Championship.

The Aussie went through a dip in form to start the season, which later made sense when his off-the-course personal issues were revealed. With his mother now treated and back home, Day has started to flash some form. He enters with a runner-up finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson and a T15 at the Memorial in his latest starts. The latter finish was his career-best finish at his home course, Muirfield Village Golf Club. Now he preps for an event where he's posted plenty of success, despite the rotating venue. Day has collected five top 10s in six previous U.S. Open appearances, although he's still searching for his first win at the event.

Past champ and World No. 4 Jason Day turned in a 2-under-par 34-34=68 after the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to match playing competitor Billy Horschel on 12-under 268, and then lost on the first hole of sudden death, the par-4 18th, 3-putting from 48'4" for bogey while Horschel won with a 2-putt par.

The 2012 winner was vying for an 11th TOUR title in his 201st career start but settles for a ninth career runner-up. It's his fourth top 25 at the Nelson in five tries, all four doubling as top 10s, and a second top 10 of the season in 10 starts (T5, AT&T Pro-Am). After opening in 68-69-63, the 29-year-old began T3 on 10-under, one back of Horschel and two shy of 54-hole leader James Hahn. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 3.603 SG: Tee-to-Green though -0.644 SG: Putting. The Aussie went out in 1-under, circling birdie-4 at No. 7, now tied with Hahn and Horschel. He came home in 1-under, outpacing a lone bogey-5 at 12 (failed scramble) with a 6-footer for birdie-3 at 10 and a pitch-in 3 at the par-4 15th from 78'3" away. Day's record in extra time drops to 1-1.
