Day hopes match play provides Masters edge

The former world number one told reporters he felt unable to continue competing at the tournament and would leave to be with his mother before she undergoes surgery for lung cancer this week.

He conceded the match to Pat Perez after the sixth hole, moments after he suffered a double bogey.

She had all the tests done in Australia, and the doc said she was terminal and only had 12 months to live. As of now I'm going to try and be with my mum for this surgery and make sure everything goes right with her.

"I'm hoping for a speedy recovery for her", Day said.

The 29-year-old Australian has placed in the Top 10 only once in 2017, finishing fifth in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in the first half of February.

McIlroy's quest to regain his match play crown was dealt an early setback as the world number two crashed to a 2&1 defeat against Danish veteran Soren Kjeldsen at Austin Country Club in Texas.

"It's been very, very emotional as you can tell", Day said.

This tournament as with most matchplay events is all about trying to keep you picks apart, so I have gone for a single individual in each quarter of the draw. And it's hard enough to see another one go through it as well. My mom says not to let it get to me, but it really has.

Day in action at last weekend's Arnold Palmer Invitational. So I'm going to do my best and try to be threre the best I can for her because she is the reason that I'm playing golf today. The 27-year-old Irishman won the event two years ago in between Day's two wins.

He said the mass in her mother's lung was 3 to 4 centimeters. The Japanese star, who has a 7-4 record in match-play singles including a 1-1 mark in the Presidents Cup, has a first-day match against risky veteran Jim Furyk.

"Everyone I'm playing this week I'm going to be the underdog", Kjeldsen joked after the Group 2 win. He is in much better current form than Day as well with a Top 10 finish in each of the four events he has entered this season, including second place in the BMW SA Open on the European tour in the middle of January. He's played in eight events this year, making the cut in only half of them.

"Nobody is expecting me to win so I don't have anything to lose". I think Reed will rise to the occasion this week and could lead you to a big payday.
