Day playing with sore hand at AT&T

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

BETHESDA, Md. -- Tiger Woods wasn't the only one to fall victim to the rough at Merion Golf Club.

Jason Day showed up Thursday at the AT&T National with his right wrist taped after suffering a strain in his hand during the U.S. Open two weeks ago.

"That rough was brutal," Day said prior to his opening round at Congressional. "There's a little bit of pain in my hand."

The Aussie is coming off a runner-up finish at the U.S. Open and is one of the favorites at the AT&T National, where he finished eighth last year. He also finished second here when Congressional hosted the U.S. Open in 2011.

Day carded a 1-under 70 in the first round, making four birdies and three bogeys.
