AUGUSTA, Ga. - As the sun approached the western horizon Friday, Jason Day tapped in for par on the 18th hole to cap a grueling day that lasted almost six hours from the first tee to the finish but ended for him with a 1-stroke lead entering Masters weekend. "I'm just very tired," a weary Day said. "This round today was very difficult. It was a big grind out there. " Still the 25-year-old Day, seeking to become the first Australian to win a green jacket, shot the best second round, a 4-under-par 68, for a 6-under 138 at the halfway point that gave him the narrow advantage over 53-year-old Fred Couples and Marc Leishman.

SO, HOW'D THEY DO? Prior to the U.S. Open, the Daily News asked various athletic celebrities for their picks. While nobody had winner Justin Rose, give Ryan Howard and Ed Rendell some credit for putting Jason Day in their trifectas and Denise Dillon and Cliff Lee the same for throwing in Phil Mickelson. Day and Mickelson finished tied for second. The majority of respondents went with Tiger Woods, who was the favorite at 4-1. Rory McIlroy, second on the Vegas board at 10-1, was also a popular pick.

Jason Day's third round on Saturday very well could have continued to head downhill after consecutive bogeys on Merion's fifth and six holes. But that's when the Aussie took a moment to self-coach. "I just told myself that I needed to stay patient," Day said. "Just like me, people are going to make mistakes. I'm going to be strong, going to keep moving. " Day proceeded to birdie four of his last 12 holes, shooting a 2-under 68. His best round of the week left him at 2 over for the tournament heading into Sunday's final round.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The roars through the hills and valleys of the Augusta National Golf Club let you know that Fred Couples was closing in on the leaders in the third round of the Masters. But other than yells of encouragement, there was mostly silence on Couples' last five holes, which he played in 5-over-par for a 77 that dropped him into a tie for 18th at 216. "I was very mediocre," said the 53-year-old Couples, the 1992 Masters champion. "I made a lot of pars, but I had just some mediocre swings.

Jason Day nearly dropped out of the Byron Nelson Championship before it began. He wound up winning the tournament - even though most folks likely will remember Jordan Spieth as the big winner. Day fought through a rocky final round for a 2-over 72, but it was good enough to give the 22-year-old Australian the first win of his PGA Tour career. Still, the 2010 Nelson will go down for the remarkable Tour debut by Spieth, a 16-year-old junior at a local Dallas-area high school.

NORTON, Mass. - For all that went wrong for Bubba Watson on the back nine Sunday, at least he still had the lead at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Right when he was starting to pull away in the third round at the TPC Boston, Watson lost control off the tee and made three bogeys in a five-hole stretch, then failed to get up-and-down for birdie from just behind the par-5 18th green. He still managed a 1-under 70 to take a 1-shot lead into the final round. Even so, the Labor Day finish figures to be wide open.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - John Monash was an Australian boy of common background who became a career soldier and rose through the ranks to become a general, famously fearless for leading his troops under fire, a Down Under version of Pershing or Patton. In World War I, he received a knighthood on the battlefield for his bravery and innovation, especially during his duty on the brutal Western Front, where his involvement turned the war. His legacy as a gentleman and a public servant remains sacrosanct in his home country, where his name graces a university, a hospital and two towns.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Since playing in his first Masters just three years ago at the age of 23, Jason Day has twice walked most of the back nine at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday with a chance to have a green jacket slipped onto his shoulders. After these near-misses - a tie for second in 2011 and a third-place finish in 2013 - Day gets another chance to break through for his first major championship when the Masters begins Thursday. This year, such an achievement comes with an extra benefit: the No. 1 world ranking.

As long as he keeps knocking on the door, Jason Day says, he'll soon win a major. For a moment Sunday on Merion's back nine, it seemed soon would be now. Day took his turn as the hottest player of the round with spectacular shots on the 10th and 11th holes. But the demanding final stretch of holes took its toll, and he had to settle for a place he knows well in a major - second. Day finished the tournament in a tie with Phil Mickelson at 3-over par, 2 strokes behind winner Justin Rose.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Nine months ago, Adam Scott led the British Open by four shots with four holes to go. That's how close he was to winning his first major. Instead, he made like Ed Sneed at the 1979 Masters. Sneed led by three with three left but never got one of those green jackets. Neither did Scott get his claret jug. Instead he became one of those train-wreck tragedies that dot golf's lore, closing with four straight bogeys to finish one behind Ernie Els. The fact that it happens is one thing.

EVEN IN THE most stressful form of golf, Matt Kuchar and his easy smile made the Match Play Championship in Marana, Ariz., look like a weekend game with his buddies. It was fun when he built a 4-up lead at the turn. And when Hunter Mahan threw his best golf at him during a wild back nine Sunday at Dove Mountain, Kuchar never looked rattled, never felt as if the match belonged to anyone but him, and never lost the lead. Kuchar kept momentum on his side with four birdies on the back nine, the last conceded on the 17th hole for a 2-and-1 victory.
