Fil-Aussie’s title defense

SPRINGFIELD (AFP) – Jason Day has opted for rest over practice before defending his world number one status and his first major title when the 98th PGA Championship tees off Thursday at Baltusrol.

The 28-year-old Australian skipped practice Tuesday over the par-70, 7,428-yard layout and opted for another rest day after spending Monday with his family, posting an Instagram photo from a video game center.

Day, who hosted a champions dinner Tuesday night at the course, intends to play a full first practice round Wednesday at Baltusrol before playing the first two rounds alongside four-time major winner Rory McIlroy and five-time major champion Phil Mickelson.
