World No. 1 golfer Jason Day withdrew from the Tour Championship Friday with a back injury.

Continue for updates.

What Day's Injury Means for FedEx Cup Friday, Sept. 23 According to Justin Ray of GolfChannel.com, the Australian had previously pulled out of the BMW Championship two weeks prior during the fourth round.

Day was three under par through one round and seven holes, but he was unable to continue his pursuit of his first Tour Championship win and FedEx Cup crown at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

"Jason has a strained ligament in his lower right back with muscle spasm," Day's management team said, per Joel Beall of Golf Digest. "He withdrew as a precautionary measure. Jason should be fine with some rest after a long break in the offseason."

Day appeared to injure his back hitting a driver out of the rough on Friday, per Beall.

The 2015 PGA Championship winner entered the Tour Championship fourth in the FedEx Cup standings behind Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed and Adam Scott.

While the timetable for Day's return is unclear, the Tour Championship is the final big tournament of 2016, and ESPN.com's Jason Sobel believes the 28-year-old's season is over.

Day would have had a significant mountain to climb in terms of winning the FedEx Cup since Johnson is faring well at the Tour Championship, but the fact the Australian dropped out means there is one less threat standing between DJ and the title.

As for Day, the first major tourney of 2017 isn't until April when the Masters tees off, which means he has a great deal of recovery time at his disposal should he need it.
