SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Jason Days plan to defend his PGA Championship took a turn he wasnt expecting.It is rare for a player considered one of the favorites in a major not to see the golf course until the day before the tournament starts, but thats how the worlds No. 1-ranked player will try to handle Baltusrol Golf Club, the site of this years PGA Championship.I havent played a practice round. I havent seen the course. I dont know what it looks like, Day said Wednesday before heading out for a practice round. I was with Doug Steffen, the head pro, last night at the champions dinner. I went through pretty much every hole with him for about 20, 30 minutes, kind of going over all the holes. Im going to try and touch them all today, but obviously the preps been a little on the lighter side. So I need to come in and try to get a good, solid 18 holes in today so I kind of know where Im going.Days plan had always been to take Monday off. Tuesday became a day of tending to a sick family and himself.Dash and Lucy (his children) are sick right now, and kind of Dash passed that on to me a little bit, Day said. Im OK. Im fine. Im just a little bit under the weather. Ellie (his wife) had an allergic reaction last night and had to go to the hospital. We were there until 2 oclock or something like that. So Im kind of running on `E right now. Shes fine. Everything was great.The 28-year-old Australian has eight wins in 2015 and 2016, but he hasnt had a good first round in any of the majors this year, which makes his having two Top Ten finishes in them all the more impressive.He shot a 72 to start the Masters and was able to finish tied for 10th. At the U.S. Open at Oakmont, he started with a 76 and rallied to finish tied for eighth. At the British Open he started with a 73 and finished tied for 22nd at Royal Troon.I think theres a little bit of expectation obviously on my shoulders; that Ive got off to a great start this year. Youve got to come out and fire on all cylinders and get yourself up the leaderboard and show people that youre there and youre ready to win, he said. I think if you try a little bit too hard sometimes, you can kind of shoot yourself in the foot. I think thats what I did in the first two majors.Since the PGA went to stroke play in 1958, only Tiger Woods has repeated as champion, in 2006 and 2007. Besides chasing Tiger, Day is also trying keep that No. 1 ranking he claimed after winning the World Match Play Championship in March. He could lose it this week if things fall right between himself and U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson.Its definitely important. I really want to obviously finish No. 1 in the world at the end of the year, Day said. But I think the biggest thing for me is to really understand what I need to do to win each week, or get myself into contention. Because the hardest part is obviously trying to stay consistent for so many years; its very, very difficult. I think the last guy we had was Tiger Woods that was very consistent. Each week that he played, he was pretty much in contention. Deshaun Watson Youth Jersey. Rinne played two periods in his first game since left hip surgery in early May. Gabriel Bourque scored 3:07 into the second period and Austin Watson tallied 5:15 later for Nashville. Deshaun Watson Texans Jersey. PETERSBURG, Fla. Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. Julién Davenport Jersey. James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday during the Heats overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss. Julién Davenport Youth Jersey. PETERSBURG, Fla. Perth might have to host Western Sydney without their skipper, with no guarantee Rostyn Griffiths will have recovered from his neck injury in time for Sundays home encounter.Griffiths aggravated the existing injury in a heavy collision with Brisbanes Brett Holman last weekend, which also forced him into hospital for dental surgery.The midfielder was still training separately from the group on Friday, and coach Kenny Lowe hinted he might take a cautious approach before next weekends difficult away game with leaders Sydney FC.He hasnt trained this week. Youve got to be careful, Lowe said.Nebojsa Marinkovic also had the day off training to nurse a sore ankle but Lowe expected he would take part.ddddddddddddIts not clear whether striker Adam Taggart will make the match-day squad, having not played since scoring a brace in the opening-round 3-3 draw with Central Coast.Perth sit fourth on the table and are warm favourites to defeat an error-prone Wanderers side thats let two leads slip in a fortnight.Id prefer them not to lead then let a couple in through by mistake. That would be a good scenario, Lowe said.Theyre going to be up for it, as they always are. Popa will have them fired up.Hes not shy. He doesnt bring a team that doesnt compete, ever.
