Australia's Jason Day, who won last year's tournament, comes into Austin as the No. 3-ranked player in the world.
"At the start of the year, she was diagnosed with 12 months to live", Day said at a press conference. "I had to look at what I felt was maybe the best preparation for me to do well at Augusta, and that was 72-hole stroke play".
Jason Day tearfully announced that his mother has lung cancer in a news conference after he withdrew from his match against Pat Perez on Wednesday. I want to make certain you are there during his Hall of Fame speech.' She loves it.
Day lost his father to stomach cancer at age 12. "If I'm to make the next Ryder Cup team, I'm going to have to win again and play more good golf".
"It's been very, very emotional, as you can tell", Day said.
"I don't know how exactly you would do the format, maybe like this (the WGC). It's hard enough to see another one go through it". I don't know much about two of my players, which is somewhat of a disadvantage to not know much about their games.
"I've got a tough group. I've tested it out, I played five before during my rookie year, and it was an absolute no", he said. "I think that's my advantage", he said. He brought her to OH for more tests, and doctors are hopeful there is a chance for recovery. "It's important to her to support him". There is no sudden death after a match in group play under any circumstance. The surgery is scheduled for Friday.
Leishman grabbed one of the last spots for the Masters at Augusta, starting April 6 and rocketed up the world rankings from No.62 to No.32.
With the golf's best - barring Tiger Woods, who is still recovering from a back problem - descending in Austin, Texas for this tournament, expect the World Golf Championships to throw up a few cracking contests. Tyrrell Hatton has had two top 5s and a top 10 in his last three events, and Tommy Fleetwood followed up his second-place finish at the WGC Mexico with a top 10 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
