Former World No. 1 Jason Day withdraws from Wyndham Championship ahead of second round

Former world No. 1 Jason Day withdrew from the Wyndham Championship before the second round, citing illness.
The 34-year-old Australian has crashed to No. 140 in the world and has not won since the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship. He opened the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup regular season finale with a 3-under 67 at Sedgefield Golf Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, and went into play on Friday with a tie for 23rd place, six shots behind John's lead huh

Day is likely to qualify for next week's FedEx St. Jude Championship in Memphis, the first of three FedEx Cup Playoff events. Day entered this week at number 115 on the points list, with the top 125 advancing to the first playoff event.
Day has gained a reputation for retiring from tournaments, often due to injuries as his body has become increasingly brittle. On the whole, illness should be less of a concern for his ability to pitch it again next week than a back injury. This was the 12th WD of Day's career, making it four consecutive seasons in which he has retired from at least one tournament. He also retired from the John Deere Classic last month with a back injury.
Day, who won the 2015 PGA Championship among his 12 Tour titles, entered the Wyndham Championship after making the cut in seven of his last eight starts. He recorded just one top-10 finish this season, a tie for third place at the Farmers Insurance Open in January, while earning over $50 million in career earnings.
