Jason Day has chosen not to compete in this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.
Another one bites the dust, but at least we have ample time to adjust. It's possible that the conditions at TPC Four Seasons are at the core of many of these withdrawals, but tournament officials are still planning on crowning a champion at the conclusion of 72 holes. UPDATE: Mike McAllister of PGATOUR.com relayed to his followers on Twitter that Day experienced dizziness during today's pro-am. He'll return home to Ohio for an evaluation. May 27 - 11:49 AM

Jason Day turns his focus to the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and begins the week ranked 13th in the FedExCup standings.

Day landed his maiden PGA TOUR title at the 2010 BNC and has two additional top 10s in four-total starts (DNP last year). The 27-year-old is the second highest-ranked player in the field at No. 8 in the Official World Golf Ranking behind hometown favorite Jordan Spieth (No. 2). After winning the Farmers Insurance Open in February, he made no secret his goal was to be No. 1. The Aussie has two T4s in six stroke-play starts since FIO (AT&T Pebble Beach, Zurich Classic) but has had several disappointments as well, including: T31 WGC-Cadillac Championship, T28 Masters and missed cut at THE PLAYERS with rounds of 69-81. He also went winless (0-3) at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play. It's difficult to determine his recent struggles as he sits first on TOUR in birdie average (4.71) and first in bogey avoidance. Perhaps he's put too much pressure on himself.

Jason Day is fortunate to walk off TPC Sawgrass with a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's opening round of THE PLAYERS.

Oh, the power of putting. Day split only five (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation, but led the field in strokes gained: putting at last check with a clip of 4.058. He drilled home six birdies, including rolls from 38'5", 39'8" and 13'3" at Nos. 14, 1, and 9, respectively. The Aussie also salvaged a double bogey from 25 feet at the par-4 18th where he found water off the tee. Day, who went 0-3 at the Match Play, signed his card today sitting only two swings in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Bogey-free Branden Grace breezed to a 4-and-3 victory over Jason Day in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, thus eliminate the Aussie's chances of advancing out of pool play.

Grace floored it at TPC Harding Park today. He opened eagle-birdie and never looked back, going 6-under on the match. Day drew within one at the turn, but bogeyed the par-4 11th. Grace picked off a win at the par-4 12th with birdie and closed it out with a par-4 at 15 where Day squared a 5. Although he's 0-2, Day is obligated to play Zach Johnson in the third round on Friday. Grace (1-1) will face Charley Hoffman.
Apr 30 - 8:26 PM

Jason Day opened his title defense of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship with a 4-and-3 loss to Charley Hoffman.

Even though he's the defending champion, Day's recent form was reason enough to label him as a favorite in the new format. It's just that Charley Hoffman disagrees. The duo opened birdie-bogey-par, and then Hoffman took the par-4 fourth with a par. He retained that lead until squaring a bogey-5 at 10. After matching 4s at the par-4 11th, Hoffman ran the table with four consecutive wins (birdie-birdie-par-birdie) to close out the Aussie. Suddenly, Hoffman is the target who Zach Johnson will battle on Thursday. Day will attempt to even his slate against Branden Grace in the second round.
Apr 29 - 5:35 PM

Jason Day outlasted the field at last year's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship and returns to defend his title this week at TPC Harding Park.

The Aussie battled with the Frenchman, Victor Dubuisson, coming away victorious on the 23rd hole. His 14-3 WGC-Match Play record is one of the strongest in the field, and he will always be a tough out, but the change of venue this week may not benefit him so much. If Day wants any chance to repeat he will first need to take out Zach Johnson, Branden Grace, and Charley Hoffman in the group stage.
Apr 28 - 12:05 AM

Jason Day settled for a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 19-under 269, good for a two-way tie for fourth.

By the back nine, Day, a 54-hole co-leader, looked the weary competitor that had played 33 holes on Sunday. The Aussie managed to circle six birdies on the round but had minimal chances hitting just 11 greens in regulation, including just 4-of-9 on his inward half. After a bogey-6 on the par-5 second, he got some momentum going with consecutive birdies on Nos. 5-7, but dampened the enthusiasm with a three-putt bogey on the par-4 eighth, one of three squares on his final round.
Apr 26 - 7:04 PM

Jason Day authored a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 16-under 200 and co-leads after 54 holes.

Day, the 36-hole overnight leader, began the day with a one-shot lead over three players. At the conclusion of the round, he was able to maintain a share of the top spot. The 27-year-old found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation en route to a five birdie, one bogey round. Four of his par breakers came on his outward nine including three straight on Nos. 5, 6 and 7, highlighted by a 27'3" drop at the sixth. After adding a 34-foot bomb for birdie on the par-3 14th, he dropped his lone shot on 15, failing to save par from 15 yards right of the hole.
Apr 26 - 12:40 PM

The third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was suspended for darkness at 7:32 p.m. CT.

After a delay of four hours and 43 minutes, the third round resumed at 5:57 p.m. Jason Day, the 36-hole leader, didn't start his round until 6:35 p.m. and had completed only three holes when play was called for the evening. All 71 players are on the course in threesomes. The restart at TPC Louisiana is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Apr 25 - 8:45 PM

Jason Day hung up a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and posted 12-under 132 at the break, good for outright possession of the 36-hole lead.

No one is going to catch him, so Day will be the target beginning the third round late this morning at TPC Louisiana. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and picked off seven birdies in the second round. The highlights stretch 24'1" and 33'11" at Nos. 9 and 15, respectively. The Aussie is proving that course history, or lack thereof, usually takes a back seat to current form among the elite. And remember, he'll be defending at next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, so he's on his way to being an even more popular selection in fantasy circles if he keeps playing like this.
Apr 25 - 10:13 AM

Jason Day twirled a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, landing three swings in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Day is back in the bayou for the first time since 2009, but he may be wondering why he hasn't played more often (ignoring his occasional injury concerns). The Aussie totaled 14 greens in regulation and a field-tying-high eight birdies today. Three of his par breakers rolled longer than 12 feet, the beauty of the bunch ranging 22'8" at the par-4 15th hole. Despite a double bogey-bogey stumble on his inward nine (due to a pair of water balls off the tee), this is easily his lowest score of seven loops of TPC Louisiana.
Apr 23 - 2:16 PM

Jason Day turned in a 1-under-par 35-36=71 for his third round of the Masters.

After the big regression on Friday, today's mild rebound is welcome. Day totaled only 11 greens in regulation but limited the damage to three bogeys. He picked off four birdies, three of which on par 5s. He's played the three-shotters in bogey-free 9-under for the week. At 4-under 212, the Aussie is two swings adrift of the 54-hole clubhouse co-leaders but outside the top 10 on the leaderboard.
Apr 11 - 5:55 PM

Jason Day regressed to a 2-over-par 37-37=74 in his second round of the Masters to post 3-under 141 at the midpoint.

The Aussie opened with a bogey at the difficult par-4 first hole, but he striped his second into the par-5 second to set up an eagle. However, he'd square four bogeys before collecting his second and final par breaker of the round, a birdie at the par-5 15th. He's a yawning 11 strokes off Jordan Spieth's record-setting pace, but Day has the kind of firepower that demands everyone's attention on the weekend.
Apr 10 - 4:12 PM

Jason Day fashioned a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the 79th Masters, posting up three strokes off the overnight lead.

Day's owners couldn't wait for today to arrive. He's healthy, playing well and has enjoyed success in varying degrees at Augusta National. The Aussie offered his latest submission with seven birdies against just two bogeys. His set featured five in a row beginning at the par-3 12th hole. Consider he totaled 12 greens in regulation, this may have been as low as he was going to go. Remain bullish on the 27-year-old as he chases his first victory in a major.
Apr 9 - 7:20 PM

Jason Day is making his fifth start at the Augusta National Golf Club.

Day is 3-for-4 at the Masters (all top 25s) including solo third in 2013 and T2 in 2011. He withdrew during the second round in 2012 (ankle injury) and finished T20 last year. Day was the 36-hole leader in the 2013 edition, but a 73 on Saturday dropped him to T4 entering the final round. He seized the lead back on Sunday after birdies on Nos. 13, 14 and 15, but bogeys on 16 and 17 derailed his title chances, eventually losing by two strokes to fellow Aussie Adam Scott. On the season, he has three top 5s in six starts, good for ninth in the FedExCup ranking. He ranks first on TOUR in multiple categories including birdie to bogey ratio, par-4 scoring and the all-around. The 2015 Farmers Insurance Open champion has made eight consecutive cuts in the majors, posting four top 10s during that span.
