In many ways, 2012 was not Jason Day’s year. The Filipino-Australian golfer, who came up empty in wins during the PGA Tour season, battled injuries, a few hitches in his game and looked nothing like the fearless player that a year before placed second in consecutive majors and grabbed a share of the world rankings.
Day had good reason for the drop off, though. He and his wife Ellie became parents for the first time in July with the birth of their boy. The new dad, who made a career-best $3.5 million from earnings in 2011, played a light schedule for the remainder of the season to settle into family life in suburban Ohio.More >

MANILA – Unless the internal conflict in Mindanao settles down, the Philippines could see a frightening spillover of violence from followers of the Islamic State, a ranking security official warned on Thursday.
Former Armed Forces chief Emmanuel Bautista, now executive secretary of the Cabinet Cluster on Peace, Justice and Peace, said: "Once the ISIS is defeated in Syria and Iraq, where will its followers in Malaysia and Indonesia go? Where else they will seek sanctuary but in a place with continuing conflict?"
Voicing out these fears at a Makati business forum dubbed “Implications of Mamasapano on the Peace Process: Moving Forward” on Thursday, Bautista said the country needs to address the Mindanao conflict the soonest time possible because of the potential threat from the outside.
