Jason Day settled for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the PGA Championship and is tied for fifth at 10-under 203 with 18 holes to play.
The Aussie spread four birdies and two bogeys across Valhalla GC on Saturday, with all of his circles on the scorecard coming from inside 10 feet. While he found 14 GIR, he lost over a stroke with the flat stick. Perhaps the highlight of hid afternoon was a par save on the par-4 second hole. He drove his ball across a river and into a hazard, and then rolled up his pants and waded across the river before chopping out barefoot and eventually saving par. Day has enjoyed several close calls at major championships the last few years, so the pressure on Sunday afternoon will be familiar. Aug 9 - 7:23 PM

Jason Day crafted a 6-under-par 30-35=65 in his second round of the PGA Championship, good for low round of the day.

He reached the midpoint in 8-under 134 and sits only one stroke off the 36-hole lead. For a guy that can't avoid injuries and illnesses and recently modified his grip, he's showing some world-class moxie at Valhalla. Day leads the field with 29 greens in regulation. He ranked fourth in distance off the tee. Today's round featured an eagle from 14'1" at the par-5 seventh hole and five birdies, including a round-long 17'1" at the par-4 second. Only a bogey-5 at 15 stained a sparkling card.
Aug 8 - 8:30 PM

Jason Day opened the PGA Championship with a 2-under-par 34-35=69, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

When he's feeling well, he's performed, so it's not surprising. The hard part, at least for gamers, is knowing when he's feeling well. Day landed 15 greens in regulation at Valhalla today, but converted just thrice for birdie. He fanned on four tries inside 10 feet, including for par from 62 inches at the par-4 16th where he squared his only bogey or worse of the round. His only notable hole-out was a three-yarder for par from the fringe at the par-4 first.

Jason Day withdrew from the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational during his third round, citing dizziness.

Day logged two holes on Saturday morning before calling it quits. He opened bogey-par and sat 6-over through 38 holes. His inclusion in next week's PGA Championship is a topic to monitor closely over the coming days.
Aug 2 - 11:00 AM

Jason Day signed for a 4-over-par 38-34=74 following his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

This was to be expected when he admitted that the pain in his left thumb forced a change in his grip. As a result, Day split six (of 14) fairways and hit only six greens in regulation. A walk-off birdie from 13'9" at the par-4 18th hole did little to ease the sting of a terrible round, but he's guaranteed FedExCup points and earnings at the conclusion of 72 holes. However, a fair question is if he'll be physically healthy enough to finish the tournament.

Jason Day continues to deal with an injury to his left thumb upon arrival at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

All bets should be off the Aussie this week as he's forced to play through pain that has dogged him for months. He pieced together a T58 at The Open Championship, but was seen at least once cringing due to the discomfort after making contact in the rough. "I'm still trying to be able to practice fully," he said. "I'm getting in practice but not at 100 percent and it's just really really frustrating." While he stated that an MRI on Monday revealed improvement in the thumb, he's making a significant modification this week. "I am trying to change my grip quickly and it feels awful right now, so I'm not to sure how I'm going to go this week," Day added. "Normally I come in a lot more prepared, but it is what it is. When you have an injury you have to work around it. I'm just trying to see where the game is for next week. And try to work on the positioning of the hands to bring less pain."

Jason Day submitted a 1-over-par 35-38=73 for his opening round of The Open Championship.

Day hasn't played since missing the cut on the number at the Quicken Loans National where he was paired with Tiger Woods. The Aussie withdrew early from The Greenbrier Classic due to a recurrence of the injury to his left thumb. Well, he was shown in visible pain at least once today. After escaping from the thick stuff left of a fairway, he let go of the iron and reached for his thumb. Day soldiered on, but he totaled only eight (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation. He outpaced three birdies with four bogeys. Continue to avoid in all formats.
Jul 17 - 3:33 PM

Jason Day is listed in the published field of next week's Open Championship.

Given the uncertainty of his injured left thumb, it wouldn't be responsible to suggest that the Aussie is good to go next week. Even if he had a sterling track record in this major (he doesn't) or at Royal Liverpool (where he's making his debut), Day wouldn't be a prudent choice if you're contending for a league title.

Jason Day has been removed from the published field of this week's Greenbrier Classic.

And your suspicion that his injured left thumb is to blame is supported by Doug Smock of the Charleston Gazette, who is covering the tournament. Smock alerted his followers on Twitter as follows: "Bad news just out: Jason Day has withdrawn. The thumb again. Missed the cut at Congressional. Tough break." The Aussie was one stroke too high at the Quicken Loans National while paired with Tiger Woods (MC) and Jordan Spieth (eventual T11). With The Open Championship poised to commence on July 17, expect an update or two on Day sooner and later.

Jason Day missed the cut on the number at the Quicken Loans National.

He signed for a pair of 2-over-par 73s during which he exchanged seven birdies with seven bogeys, but also connected a pair of doubles to begin his inward nine on the back half of Congressional today. He entered as a favorite what with his recent form and success on the course, but he was paired with Tiger Woods, a variable that can never go overlooked. Other notables that have the weekend off include: 146--Brian Harman ... 147--Russell Henley; Aaron Baddeley ... 148--Jason Dufner; Will MacKenzie ... 149--Ernie Els ... 150--Keegan Bradley ... 152--Chesson Hadley ... 159--Pat Perez.

Jason Day carded a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the U.S. Open to join Keegan Bradley in the clubhouse lead at 1-over 281.

Day ruined a bogey-free day at Pinehurst No. 2 with a bogey on the par-4 18th. Prior to that, he recorded three birdies and 14 pars. He's twice finished runner-up in this tournament, so it's becoming clearer by the major that the USGA set up is one he can navigate. He split 73 percent of his fairways and 64 percent of his GIR for the tournament.
Jun 15 - 6:16 PM

Jason Day readies for his fourth U.S. Open appearance this week, with two runner-up finishes already on his resume.

The Aussie loves the big stage, as the six top 10s in 14 career major championship starts indicates. In his return from a thumb injury, Day averaged 319 yards off the tee at the Memorial Tournament, a good sign that the thumb is healed. With four major championship podium finishes already to his name, he remains one of the strongest contenders and should be considered in all formats.

Jason Day signed for an even-par 36-36=72 following his opening round of the Memorial.

Back inside the ropes after giving his injured left thumb time to heal, the Aussie traded two birdies with two bogeys at Muirfield Village. It was his official action since a T20 at the Masters. As you'd expect, his putting was rusty today. He missed three tries from inside nine feet and completed his round with a strokes gained-putting split of -2.480. Earlier in the week, he spoke about the extent of his recovery. "The thumb is totally fine," he said. "At the start of the injury I thought it would be a two- to three-week break, but it got progressively worse. It was frustrating, it really was. "My whole body felt great except for my hand." This is just his fifth start of the season, so he could be a valuable find down the stretch in any format with a capped number of starts.

Jason Day is listed in the published field of next week's Memorial.

This is the event that the Aussie circled when he elected to rest an injured left thumb over a start at THE PLAYERS. (He had also eschewed the RBC Heritage three weeks prior.) Day is 31st in FedExCup points, but has made only four starts this season. He's played only once (T20, Masters) since winning the Match Play three months ago. It's great news that he's verbally committed to Muirfield Village, but expect an update on his status prior to the opening round.

As a result of the injury to his left thumb, Jason Day has elected not to tee it up in next week's PLAYERS.

Day agent, Bud Martin, said the following in a statement published at PGATOUR.com: "Day suffered a slight setback while playing the Masters and the thumb has been a bit slow to heal. He is still a few weeks away from resuming normal golf activities." Day tied for 20th at Augusta National, his only start since winning the Match Play. He's made only four starts this season, but started this week ranked 22nd in FedExCup points. He's a lock to finish inside the top 125, but if he falls short of 15 starts to fulfill the membership minimum, he can file an application for a dispensation given the injury. All this means is that the injury won't negatively impact his status for 2014-15 as along as he completes the paperwork. As for his hopeful return, Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press wrote on Twitter that the Aussie "Hopes to play Memorial" on May 29-June 1.
