AUSTIN, TEXAS | All things in golf point toward Augusta and The Masters at this time of the year and Jason Day is no different.
It’s the golf tournament he most wants to win and he’s had his chances. It’s been in his mind for months and every day it creeps closer, the more Day thinks about it.
He may be dreaming of pimento cheese sandwiches for all we know.
Day will arrive at The Masters as the No. 1 player in the world, having won the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the WGC-Dell Match Play in successive starts, and he is the epitome of the modern golfer, making him the player to beat at Augusta National this year.
Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Bubba Watson will have their names splashed across the opening credits also but Day’s name comes first.
Consider what he’s done the past two weeks. He won at Bay Hill, blowtorching Arnie’s place the first two days then doing the hard work of finishing it off on the weekend.
