Jason Day Withdraws Due to Ailing Thumb

Well, for the second time in two tournaments Jason Day withdraws again citing the same injured them that caused him to pull out of the WGC Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral hours before he was set to tee off. This time he is backing out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Day said that he had initially injured his thumb during his win at the WGC Accenture Match Play in Arizona last month and that it is still lingering. An MRI in Miami before Doral showed that there was no damage, but Jason Day withdrew saying that he was more concerned about injuring it further before the Masters. We can only assume that was his rationalization again for leaving this event, which means he thinks he’s got more than a strong shot.

GolfWeek’s David Dusek said on his Twitter account that he saw Jason Day leave with his thumb heavily taped. See the tweet below.

With the Masters less than 4 weeks away, it’s looking less likely that Jason will compete at the Valero Texas Open or the Shell Houston Open which typically tend to be tuneup courses before Augusta.
