Taking a page from the playbook of Punxsutawney Phil, Jason Day has announced his plan to hibernate over the fall and winter, allowing ample time to rehab his ailing back.
The Aussie was forced to withdraw from the final two events of the FedExCup Playoffs, due to his back acting up. The 28-year-old informed his Twitter followers with the message, "On the advice of his team physician, world #1 ranked golfer Jason Day has regretfully withdrawn from the 2016 Emirates Australian Open and the 2016 World Cup of Golf." Both events were scheduled for mid-to-late November. Day will also miss a charity event in the Philippines which was scheduled for November 29th. We will update with a return event becomes clearer but for now we can assume the Tournament of Champions on January 5th is likely the earliest Day would return. Oct 7 - 5:13 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day has withdrawn from this week's TOUR Championship, citing a back injury. He was 3-under-par on the week through 25 holes at the time of the WD.

The Aussie opened the week with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 to sit just one stroke off the lead after day one. He split just five fairways in round one to find himself whacking it out of the thick stuff plenty of times. That's exactly what he was doing (with a driver) when he withdrew from the event. On the day he traded one birdie and one bogey to keep himself at 3-under so he was still right in the thick of contention before the par-4 eighth. This is the second-straight event Day has backed out of mid-tournament with back troubles. This puts an end to his season and likely puts him out of contention for the Player of the Year award. The 28-year-old is currently committed to the World Cup of Golf starting November 24th, where he'll pair up with Adam Scott as the defending champions.

Jason Day's back looked fine as he constructed a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the TOUR Championship, putting him one off the early pacesetters.

The Aussie bowed out during the final round at the BMW Championship two weeks ago, citing a back injury. He bounced back nicely today, playing blemish-free golf after an opening bogey. In typical Day fashion, he found just five fairways but used his flat stick to make up the work. The 28-year-old splashed home five putts from 10-to-17 feet on the front nine alone before adding one more coming home. He walked off the course gaining 2.110 strokes putting. Day continues to be a walking billboard for the saying, "drive for show, putt for dough."

World No. 1 and defending champion Jason Day withdrew during the final round of the BMW Championship citing a back injury.

The 28-year-old began the final frame on 5-under (T21) after opening in 73-67-71, 13 shots in arrears to 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson. He was 2-over on his lap thru eight holes, outbalancing birdie-4 at five with bogey at the par-4 second and a double bogey-5 at the third that included a shank from a greenside bunker. This is the Aussie's lone WD this season in 19 starts and sixth overall in 190 career events, first since WDing from this same tournament in 2014 (also with a back) after a first-round even-par 70,. He's projecting to drop two places to fourth in the FedExCup standings with the top 5 entering the TOUR Championship (in two weeks) controlling their own destiny.
Sep 11 - 2:11 PM

Jason Day hoisted the trophy at the 2015 BMW Championship held at Conway Farms Golf Club and now turn his attention to Crooked Stick Golf Club for a chance to defend his title at this year's edition.

World No. 1 lapped the field at last year's BMW. The Aussie held a five-shot lead at halftime, stretched it to six through three quarters and finished the week six shots clear of runner-up Daniel Berger. That was at Conway Farms, a 7,198-yard layout but he'll face a much beefier task this week at Crooked Stick. The Pete Dye design stretches out to 7,567 yards. Day has lost a combined 8.313 strokes off-the-tee during this year's FedExCup Playoffs, but he's still managed a T4 and T15 at The Barclays and Deutsche Bank Championship, respectively. If he can clean it up on the tee box this week, he should be right in the mix come Sunday. This will be his first look at Crooked Stick as he found himself 87th in the FedExCup race after the 2012 Deutsche Bank and failed to qualify for the BMW that season.
Sep 6 - 5:57 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day fashioned a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to wrap his ninth appearance on 8-under 276, up 18 places on the live leaderboard to T15.

The 28-year-old played the weekend in 68-67 after being the last man to make the cut after opening in 70-71. He began the finale on 4-under (T33), a distant 11 in arrears to 54-hole leader Paul Casey. The Aussie squared a lone bogey at the par-5 second, 3-putting from 9'10", but played his final 16 holes in blemish-free 5-under. As it stands, a closing birdie at the par-5 18th would've back-doored a top 10, but he'll settle for his fourth straight top-20 finish at TPC Boston. For the week, Day totaled two eagles and 16 birdies against six bogeys, one double, and one quad bogey-8 in R2. He's currently 9th in SG: Approach-the-Green and SG: Putting, but 71st (of 72) in SG: Off-the-Tee (-5.432).
Sep 5 - 1:56 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day tossed up a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach 4-under 209, up 26 places on the live leaderboard to T36.

The 28-year-old was the last (of 11) to make the cut on 1-under 141 after opening in 70-71. He continues to carve his way back for a quad bogey-8 in R2, but swallowed another big number in the third round, double bogey-6 at the 10th, the result of another errant tee shot. The Aussie improved to nine (of 14) fairways but still lost 0.921 off-the-tee and is currently DFL in that stat (72nd) and T70 in driving accuracy at 52.38 percent (22/42). Similar to last week, the putter is the saving grace, posting 2.710 in SG: Putting with six par breakers on 13 greens in regulation, highlighted by a walk-off eagle from 7'2" at the 18th.
Sep 4 - 1:51 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day battled to an even-par 39-32=71 in today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 1-under 141, down 14 spots to T62.

The 28-year-old had one blemish on the card but it was a doozy, eating a one-putt quad bogey-8 at the fifth. Elsewhere, he circled birdies on Nos. 2, 12, 14 and 15, playing his final 13 holes in 3-under to secure a third-round reservation. The Aussie managed to hit 15 greens in regulation, despite struggling again off the tee, where he lost 1.770 strokes. Three of his four conversions were between six and 13 feet, capping with a 33'2" beauty at the par-4 15th. Day missed three scoring tries from inside of 13 feet over the final three holes, but considering he learned of his family being involved in a car accident yesterday (everyone's fine), Day really showed the heart of a warrior to make the cut on the number.
Sep 3 - 8:20 PM

World No. 1 Jason Day pieced together a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, four in arrears to early co-clubhouse leaders Paul Casey and Fabian Gomez.

The 28-year-old is making his ninth appearance at TPC Boston with a best of T2 in 2010. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he bogeyed the par-4 12th (penalty drop after an errant tee shot), but leveled the card with a 19-inch birdie-3 at 14. The Aussie missed birdie from 5'2" at the par-5 18th, but circled the par-4 first (17'2") and eagled the second, rolling in a seven-footer for a '3' on the card. He stalled out from there however, bogeying the fifth, again with a penalty following an errant tee shot, and the sixth on a failed scramble. Day found just six (of 14) fairways and mustered 12 greens in regulation, posting -2.179 SG: Off-the-Tee but 2.390 SG: Approach-the-Green.
Sep 2 - 3:05 PM

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.
Aug 26 - 6:26 PM

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.
Aug 22 - 9:23 PM

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.
