Jason Day

Day was introduced to golf by his father, who passed away when Jason was 12. The Aussie enjoyed plenty of success at the amateur level, highlighted by his win at the 2006 Australian Amateur Stroke-Play Championship. His decorated amateur career also included titles at the Australian Junior Championship, World Junior Championship, Queensland Amateur Championship and the Queensland Medal Championship. He played on the PGA Tour of Australasia in 2004 and 2005.
A key to Day's current success was attending The Kooralbyn International School (TKIS) in Queensland. On that first day at Kooralbyn, he met Colin Swatton, who was the school's golf coach. Eventually, a bond developed and Swatton became a father figure and mentor. He also helped Day develop his swing and game. When Day came to America and won on the Korn Ferry Tour, he called and convinced Swatton to join him in America as not only his swing coach but as his caddie and traveling companion as well. Swatton is still his instructor, but he has since changed caddies.
Day has played in four Presidents Cup matches: 2011, '13, '15 & '17.
He made seven starts on the PGA Tour in 2006, with strong showings at the Reno-Tahoe Open (T-11th) and U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee, Wis. (T-13th).
He played on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2007, finishing 5th on the money list. At the time, Day's victory at the Legend Financial Group Classic made him the youngest player to win a Korn Ferry Tour-sanctioned event. At 19 years, 7 months, 26 days, he surpassed the previous youngest players to win on the two Tours, including Johnny McDermott's (19 years, 10 months) win in the 1911 U.S. Open and James Oh's (21 years, 5 months, 27 days) victory in the 2003 Mark Christopher Charity Classic. Later that year, Day shot 62-63 in the last two rounds of the Xerox Classic, equaling the Korn Ferry Tour record for a 36-hole total.
2007 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 19; Rounds Played - 66; In Money - 14; Top-10 Finishes - 7; Scoring Average - 70.03 (Rank 9th); Money - $331,542 (Rank 5th); Best Finish - 1st, Legend Financial Group Classic.
Claimed his first PGA Tour victory at the 2010 HP Byron Nelson Championship. He has played in three Presidents Cup Matches, 2011, '13 and '15. Since joining the PGA Tour, he has had health concerns, including diagnoses of swine flu, bronchitis, and allergies, that have been stabilized since 2010 thanks to sinus surgery. The runner-up at the 2011 Masters and U.S. Open had a career-best 10 top-10 finishes, ending 2011 12th in the FedExCup standings and 9th on the money list. He made his first International Presidents Cup Team, finishing with a 1-2-1 record.
2012 Notes: Day's sinus problems were held in check, but an ankle injury caused him to withdraw from the Masters and take a month off. He and his wife, Ellie, had their first son in July of that year. He recorded four top-10s in 17 starts, finished 88th on the money list with earnings of $1,143,233, and played the first two FedExCup Playoff events, finishing 87th.
2013 Notes: Day was defeated in the semifinals of the WGC-Accenture Match Play by eventual winner Matt Kuchar, and finished 3rd. He also recorded a 3rd-place result at the Masters, where he led after 36 holes and finished two shots out of the playoff. At the U.S. Open, he finished T-2nd, two shots behind winner Justin Rose. Day had a T-32nd result at the British Open and a T-8th at the PGA Championship. He finished the year 17th in the FedExCup standings and 12th on the money list. He had a strong performance in his second Presidents Cup appearance, posting a 3-1-1 record in the International team's loss to the U.S.
Days before playing at the ISPS Handa World Cup in November, Day learned that eight of his relatives died in Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, including his grandmother, uncle and six cousins. Despite the tragedy, he finished at 10 under par to earn a two-shot win in the individual competition at Royal Melbourne G.C. in Australia. He then teamed with Adam Scott to shoot a combined 17 under par to win the team competition for Australia.
2014 Notes: Day started the year finishing in a five-way T-2nd result at the Farmers Insurance Open, one shot behind Scott Stallings. In his fourth consecutive start, at the Accenture Match Play Championship, and fifth in a World Golf Championships event, he defeated France's Victor Dubuisson with a par at the 23rd hole (fifth extra playoff hole) in the championship match at The G.C. at Dove Mountain. At 26 years, 3 months, 11 days, he became the youngest winner of the Accenture Match Play Championship, a distinction previously held by Tiger Woods (27 years, 2 months, 2 days in 2003). With the victory, Day also became only the second Australian winner of the event, joining Geoff Ogilvy (2006 and 2009). Two weeks later, he was forced to withdraw prior to the first round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship and then the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a left thumb injury. He returned to play at the Masters (T-20th), then took more time off, not playing again until The Memorial (T-37th). At the British Open, he finished T-58th, then withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone. He finished T-15th at the PGA Championship, T-2nd at The Barclays and T-7th at the Deutsche Bank before withdrawing from the BMW Championship with a back injury. He returned to play in the Tour Championship and finished T-4th. He ended the year 10th in the FedExCup standings and 16th on the money list.
2015 Notes: In his first start of the year, he shot a final-round 62 to finish T-3rd at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. At the Farmers Insurance Open, he tied for the lead at the end of the final round and defeated defending champion Scott Stallings, Harris English and J.B. Holmes in a two-hole playoff. He finished T-4th at the AT&T Pebble Beach the following week, posted another T-4th at the Zurich Classic, and finished T-28th at the Masters. During the second round at the U.S. Open, he collapsed on the final hole of the day but was able to finish. He was diagnosed with benign positional vertigo. Nevertheless, in the final round, he found himself in the final pairing with Dustin Johnson, one of four co-leaders. Day shot a closing four-over-par 74 and placed T-9th, five shots behind champion Jordan Spieth. His record at the U.S. Open includes four top-10s in five starts. Finally posted his first top-25 finish at the British Open, where he finished T-4th after his birdie putt at the 72nd hole that would have put him into the playoff stopped short of the hole. The next week, he birdied his final three holes for a one-shot win at the RBC Canadian Open, the first time he had won multiple times in a year. Three weeks later, he added his first major win at the PGA Championship, where he shot 68-67-66-67 for a 268, which is the second-lowest total score in major history, and made him the first player to finish a major at 20 under par. He finished three shots better than Jordan Spieth. Day owns nine top-10 outings in 21 major championship appearances, including a win at the 2015 PGA Championship and three runner-up finishes. Won two FedExCup Playoff events, The Barclays and the BMW Championship. Was 2nd in the final FedExCup standings and on the money list. Ended the year playing in his third Presidents Cup, where he posted an 0-4-1 record.
2016 Notes: Took time off after the 2015 Presidents Cup. His wife, Ellie, gave birth to the couple's second child in November. He played his first event of the year at the Farmers, where he missed the cut. Finished T-11th at the AT&T Pebble Beach, T-23rd at the WGC-Cadillac, and then won the Arnold Palmer, his first win in Florida. A week later at the WGC-Dell Match Play, Day won seven matches, including a 5 and 4 win over Louis Oosthuizen in the final. The victory gave Day the No. 1 spot in the world ranking. It was his second Match Play win in three years and he passed the $30-million dollar mark in career earnings. Finished T-10th at the Masters, followed by a T-23rd at the Heritage and T-5th at the Zurich Classic. Claimed his seventh victory in a 17-month stretch, and 10th title on the PGA Tour with a four-stroke win at The Players Championship. Joined Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, and David Duval as the only players to reach double-digit wins on the Tour before age 29. With a nine-under-par 63 in the opening round, he joined Fred Couples (1992), Greg Norman (1994), Roberto Castro (2013) and Martin Kaymer (2014) as course-record holders. Colt Knost joined the group with a 63 in the second round. Day was bogey-free, shooting 63-66 - 129 (-15) to set the 36-hole tournament record and gain a four-stroke margin through 36 holes (also a tournament record). Marked the first time in his career he went bogey-free over his first 36 holes at any PGA Tour event. Was the first wire-to-wire winner of The Players since Hal Sutton in 2000. Joined Tiger Woods (2001, '13) and Greg Norman (1994) as the only players to win The Players while ranked No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Finished T-8th at the U.S. Open. At the WGC-Bridgestone, Day led going into the final round. He reached seven under par to lead in the final round before a bogey at 15, a double bogey at 16 and a bogey at 18 dropped him into a T-3rd. His final-round 72 ended a streak of converting five consecutive 54-hole leads/co-leads into victories. Dropped from 1st to 2nd behind Dustin Johnson in FedExCup standings after holding the No. 1 position for seven weeks. Finished T-22nd at the British Open, then T-14th in defense of his RBC Canadian Open title. At his title defense at the PGA Championship, Day finished runner-up to Jimmy Walker. Ended his week by hitting his second shot at the par-5 18th from 258 yards to 13 feet, then making the putt for eagle, moving him to 13-under 267 and within one of Walker, who was back in the fairway at 18. Finished T-4th with Gary Woodland and Adam Scott in his title defense at The Barclays. With 68-70-70-69, was the only player in the field with four under-par rounds. After entering the week ranked 1st, dropped to 2nd in the FedExCup standings behind Barclays winner Patrick Reed. In his title defense at the BMW Championship, he withdrew after eight holes in the final round with a back injury. Dropped from 2nd to 4th in the FedExCup standings. In his next start, withdrew from the Tour Championship after eight holes in the second round due to his back injury. Finished 6th in the FedExCup standings, marking his third consecutive top-10 finish and fourth overall in the FedExCup. That would be the last time Day played until Maui in January 2017.
2017 Notes: After taking three months off to rest his back, Day returned at the SBS Tournament of Champions and finished T-12th. With a final-round 67, he finished T-5th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Lost the world No. 1 ranking at the Genesis Open, after a Dustin Johnson win (Day finished T-64th at Riviera CC). Finished T-23rd in his title defense at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The next week at the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship, he conceded his first match against Pat Perez after the sixth hole. In a tearful press conference, he announced that his mother Dening was stricken with lung cancer and was having surgery two days later to remove a malignant mass from her lung. Two weeks before the Masters, it was unclear when Day would return. He played in the Masters and finished T-22nd. He had his best finish of the year at the AT&T Byron Nelson, a T-2nd when he missed a short par putt on the first extra hole of a playoff with Billy Horschel. Was T-15th at the Memorial but struggled to miss the cut at the U.S. Open and Travelers, then was T-27th at the British Open and T-9th at the PGA Championship. Played in all FedExCup Playoff events. His top-10s were T-6th at the Northern Trust and 4th at the BMW Championship. Finished 18th in the final FedExCup standings, his highest ranking since 2012. Before the BMW, he replaced his long-term caddie Colin Swatton, who will continue to be Day's swing coach. He brought a friend from home, Luke Reardon, who was his roommate at the Hills International College in Australia, to caddie for him. Went 1-3-1 in his fourth consecutive appearance for the International team at the Presidents Cup. Ended the year 5th at the Emirates Australian Open.

Since then, Day missed the cut at the Valspar Championship and lost all three of his matches at the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship.
