Day ready for Masters challenge

Jordan Spieth can't wait for this week's Masters - to be over, that is.

While Spieth has moved on from the most memorable moment of last year's Masters, he admits it is one he will not forget.

"I have no timetable for my return, but I will continue my diligent effort to recover, and want to get back out there as soon as possible", he said. It brings a non-golf audience into golf.

"You have to have a lot of patience because you do get a little edgy when it comes time for the Masters and you haven't really performed how you wanted to".

Former champion Spieth, who was leading in the final round a year ago until falling apart by dropping six shots in three holes, will set off with Germany's Martin Kaymer and England's Matthew Fitzpatrick.

"I feel very comfortable out there", said Spieth. His mother's health was a primary concern, but when she learned Monday there would be no chemotherapy treatment required, Day knew he was good to go back to golf.

"I've been in position before, and I haven't got the job done when I needed to, and I don't think that's anything to do with my game. Last two times I played the hole, I made birdie". He's had a strong 2017 to date, too, with three finishes in the top seven in his first three events. "I was torn. I just knew I had to be back home".

Don't be so sure, Rory McIlroy said.

The Northern Irishman led the tournament going into the final round in 2011 but carded an ugly 80 to blow his chances.

And he has yet to hear the end of it.

The native of Lumberton, North Carolina and Wofford graduate punched his ticket to Augusta by winning last year's Memorial Tournament, the event created by Jack Nicklaus. "That might be the way he's approaching it". It's just something you have to deal with. "It's there, and it always will be".

Seeking to become the first Japanese man to win a major, showed his affinity for Augusta with a fifth place in 2015, and enhanced his major credentials with a tie for fourth at the PGA Championship last August.

"He can console himself by opening up his wardrobe and seeing (a Green Jacket) hanging there", McIlroy said. He was asked again Tuesday at Augusta National. The course seems to be made for him.

"Obviously we still have to wait and see - chemo - but we feel much better about things", Day said.

"We played it the next morning and I hit a 9-iron this time to a left pin, and it landed about 3 feet beyond the hole and it was really, really soft, and it sucked back and nearly went in, right on the lip to about this far".

Walker said the only remedy is rest, "and I don't have time for that". There's no other Master.
