Jordan Spieth ready to bury Masters meltdown

The Sunday before Masters Sunday is not so quiet

The Sunday before Masters Sunday is not so quiet

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 ideal scenario to win the green jacket he has long sought.

The first day of practice rounds were cut short and play was suspended due to severe weather, but that didn't put a damper on the first day of the 2017 Masters.

An emotional Day withdrew from last month's WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play after just six holes of his opening match in order to return to his mother's side as she underwent surgery for lung cancer. "Certainly the focus is on the Masters right now".

"Golf was the last thing on my mind", Day said. "She had the left quarter of her lung taken out..."

"But I'm excited about the opportunity ahead, which is now I can go back and really tear this golf course up". It's a very painful thing to go through and watch someone - you don't expect to go through it.

While Johnson is a veteran of the Augusta National Golf Club, Boiling Springs resident William McGirt is playing in his first Masters.

"Yeah, I would have liked to have won more".

Russia draws senators' focus in hearing on election meddling
Watts did not provide additional information about why he believes Rubio was targeted by the disinformation campaign. Ahead of Thursday's Senate hearing, Warner pledged to keep the investigation focused on the reason it was started.

Dustin Johnson said on Tuesday that being the hottest golfer on the planet heading into the U.S. Masters means nothing when it comes to trying to tame Augusta National.

Tough for the patrons, especially those here for the first time to The Masters, but it did not seem to bother the players. Jon Rahm has gone from rising star to bonafide star real quick, and he's been outside the Top 10 just once since late January.

This year, he'll come into the Masters far more rested, having taken a three-week break before adding the Houston tournament for the first time since 2010 as a tune-up before coming to Augusta. His knowledge of the course should play to his favor. Seve had already won two. I'm still going to prepare like I always do and go out and try to play the best I can. One of the crucial areas to master is Amen Corner - the noted par-4 11th, par-3 12th and par-5 13th holes.

Spieth, who was leading the Masters past year until his debacle at the par-three 12th, stuck his tee shot about a foot from the pin on the same hole on Tuesday.

Starting with Jason Day's victory in the 2015 PGA Championship, the past five men's Majors have been captured by first-time Major winners. If you haven't been paying close attention to the PGA Tour this year, that's alright.

"He walked by and said, ‘Good chip, Quinn, '" Thomas said.
