Based more on current form than a mathematical formula, Jordan Spieth believes Jason Day is the No. 1 player in golf. ''He's playing the best of anybody right now,'' Spieth said Thursday at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The second FedEx Cup playoff event is all about the Big Three. Rory McIlroy returned to No. 1 in the world even though he skipped opening playoff event last week at The Barclays. Spieth has the easiest road back to No. 1 this week and likely only has to finish ahead of McIlroy.

Television golf analyst Mark Rolfing has been diagnosed with salivary gland cancer and will not be part of the Golf Channel or NBC broadcast team for the rest of the year. Rolfing had surgery three weeks ago to remove a malignant growth from his left cheek area. NBC and Golf Channel televise the last three FedEx Cup playoff events and the Presidents Cup.

Red-hot Jason Day of Australia heads into this week's Deutsche Bank Championship seeking a fourth PGA Tour victory in five starts to strengthen his grip at the top of the FedExCup standings. The 27-year-old won the opener in the lucrative four-event playoff series by a commanding six shots at The Barclays last week and now turns his attention to the TPC Boston in Norton where he finished second in 2010 and tied for third in 2011. "I love coming back up here," PGA Championship winner Day told reporters on Thursday as he prepared for Friday's opening round when he will play in high-profile company with world number two Jordan Spieth and fourth-ranked Bubba Watson.

Phil Mickelson only realized a few days ago his proud streak of qualifying for 20 consecutive teams was over. ''I would love to be on the team,'' Mickelson said Thursday after his pro-am round at the TPC Boston. Tiger Woods was playing his third tournament as a pro during the 1996 Presidents Cup team.

By Mark Lamport-Stokes LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - For the non-golfer, the image is an unsettling one -- lush golf courses sprawling across the desert areas around Palm Springs in arid California while the state is suffering a drought for a fourth consecutive year. Similar scenes can be found in states such as Nevada, Texas and Arizona where golf courses appear to be getting more than their fair share of water in an era of climate change when usage is increasingly restricted in the private and public sectors. For the United States Golf Association (USGA), however, a much bigger picture must be viewed when it comes to assessing the management of resources on golf courses, which can play a significant environmental role in urban areas.
