Jason Day 2016 schedule: When will he play next?

Jason Day's 2016 schedule starts balancing out being a top-three player in the world with now being a two-time father, with daughter Lucy born in November 2015.

Day will start his season at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in January, a spot into which he earned with five PGA Tour victories last season. His first defense is his first mainland U.S. start of the year at the Farmers Insurance Open in the San Diego area. Then, he'll play in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in mid-February.

While Day hasn't announced his schedule beyond Pebble Beach, we shouldn't expect to see him again until the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral, near Miami, in March. We should see him at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, then the WGC-Dell Match Play.

He'll be in the Masters, as well the other three majors, and is likely to play the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He'll compete in The Players and the Memorial Tournament.

Like with many other players, it's hard to predict his schedule beyond the U.S. Open in June because that's when the year gets wacky because of the shuffling required to accommodate the 2016 Olympic golf tournament in the schedule.

Day is skipping the Olympic tournament, but we'll see him in the FedEx Cup playoffs. He'll then head home to Australia to play in the Emirates Australian Open in November at Royal Sydney Golf Club.
