Adam Scott prepared for US Masters at Augusta

Adam Scott prepared for US Masters at Augusta

There are few golfers in history who have dominated this course the way he did in 2015, and he says past year is behind him.

Thomas was asked to boil down the WJS story, which came complete with a Golf BioDynamics graphic detailing every move of his swing, in plain English. And it's one that didn't work the last time he played in competition. Day would stand behind the ball, close his eyes and - nothing.

"I'm pleased with my preparation and hopefully I can be really firing when the opening round comes". All week, my ninth time covering this tournament - I know I'm lucky - all week, I'll be taking you inside the tournament, but also behind-the-scenes - inside the gift shop, the brand new press area, and eating everything Augusta National has to offer - the pimento cheese from Augusta National might be my favorite food on the planet.

That "something else" was understandable. Throw in the likes of Dustin Johnson coming off three consecutive victories, Rory McIlroy chasing a career Grand Slam, Jordan Spieth seeking revenge from 2016, Hideki Matsuyama holding the hopes of a golfing mad nation which has never claimed a Major victory, Jason Day's tough family battle, Phil Mickelson just being Phil Mickelson. As he reported during a Tuesday interview session, his mother's surgery was successful: She's been told she won't need chemotherapy, and her original prognosis of 12 months to live has been expanded exponentially.

He added: "I'm in a much better place now, being able to be here this year is a special week, not only for me being here but have my mum in safe hands. I can concentrate on playing good golf instead of thinking about other things".

Dening remains in OH, where her son lives and where her surgery was performed.

Johnson, who has won his last three starts, will tee off in the final group at 2:03 p.m. ET (1803 GMT) in Thursday's opening round at Augusta National. Not necessarily in the same way he was two weeks ago, when those thoughts so quickly turned to worry.

Day learned Monday that she would not need chemotherapy and that the woman who bolstered his golf dreams can watch him this weekend at the Masters for the first time, a flawless scenario to win the green jacket he has long sought. Not yet, at least.

"I struck the ball the best I have this year, for sure". "I came in the week before Houston and played, played some golf here for a few days, three days, felt like I did most of my prep then, then I played enough golf last week in Houston to take Monday off".

"I was in a bad situation with my mum, but I'm here and that's what I've got to be thankful for". It's the only golf tournament of the year I watch wire-to-wire and I haven't even golfed myself in 25 years, but I have really grown to love and respect the American tradition.

"She's good", Day said. "It's going to be really fun", said Wang. "I was torn. I just knew I had to be back home". In fact, Day said if she continues to improve she could possibly travel to Augusta National to see him this weekend.
