Day survives cut for US PGA Boston playoff

AAP logoAAP 3/09/2016

World No.1 Jason Day has endured a nervous wait after a quadruple bogey ruined his second round of the US PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoff event in Boston.

Day, who was forced to make a hasty exit from the Deutsche Bank Championship after the first round when his wife Ellie and their two children were involved in a car accident, carded an even-par 71 on Saturday.

He sits in a tie for 62nd place and despite missing an eight-foot birdie putt on the 18th he finished right on the cut line.

Day's quadruple bogey at the par 4 fifth hole came after he made a bright start with a birdie at the par 3 third hole.

He regathered his composure and salvaged his round with birdies on the 12th, 14th and 15th holes.

But he is 10 strokes behind the second-round leader Kevin Chappell who shot a seven-under par 64.

Chappell leads England's Paul Casey and US PGA winner Jimmy Walker by one shot.

Adam Scott is the best-placed Australian at four-under par after firing a 67 to be in a tie for 30th.

Marc Leishman is two shots behind Scott after a one-over par 72 while Aaron Baddeley finished at one-under par to be tied with Day.
