Jordan Spieth of the U.S. hits a driver off the 14th tee during Tuesday practice rounds for the 2017 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, U.S., April 4, 2017.
Down five shots to Spieth at the time, Willett was able to take full advantage and play his best golf to win the Masters and earn the green jacket.
"I've done all the preparation I can".
"My mom was telling he, 'just go out and play, '" Day said. "Past couple of years, I think I've been in the top 10 for a while". If I want to win here, everything's going to have to go well for me.
Jason Day's status for the 2017 Masters was a little touch and go for a while.
"The wind is supposed to be up", said former Masters champion Phil Mickelson.
He has "torn up" the golf course in his three previous appearances, tying for second place in 2014 and 2016 sandwiched around a wire-to-wire victory when at one point he reached a record 19 under par and later tied Tiger Woods' scoring record at 18-under 270. "He's got a lot of game, too", Scott said. "With the forecast, wind on Thursday and Friday, the course will play very hard".
From what I understand, it's going to blow 25-30 miles per hour at times this week, with gusts perhaps up to 40, which I don't know will be enough to move balls on the greens or not.
"Hopefully I'm coming on the back nine with a chance to win", said Johnson, looking ahead to this weekend.
Not only does the technology of that time seem quaint, but now, because they're connected to fans via social media and marketing campaigns a thousand times more sophisticated, athletes can choose how and when and even what to share in the public space. "He wanted to get me down to play Augusta National as soon as possible to help me get comfortable out there".
Numerous players who want to play with Jack said they would do so in order to pick his mind about the course itself. Then you can run up numbers pretty quickly.
Day's best finish at Augusta was a tie for second in 2011. But he missed the cut in Houston last week after going a modest 1-1-1 at the WGC-Match Play.
After winning the U.S. Amateur and Asia-Pacific Amateur a year ago, Luck didn't make any early trips to Augusta, instead opting to first step on the property last Wednesday. Not surprisingly, Johnson is the leader in the FedEx Cup points standings as he looks to continue the momentum he built from last year's U.S. Open win.
"He's like the cornerback who gets beat and acts like it never happened", Harmon said. "And it will be nice once this year's finished, to be brutally honest with you".
"I've played 99 holes in two weeks here".
"It is one of many tournaments I've lost given a certain performance on a hole or a stretch of holes", said Spieth.
Four-time major victor McIlroy, 27, played with Luck on Tuesday and was clearly impressed with the 20-year-old from Perth.
Rory McIlroy has had two solid starts since his return from a rib injury. "Really the best way of preparing was playing with those guys".
"(The Masters) is going to be a great experience for him to see where his game is at".
