World golf new king Jason Day says he is prepared to enjoy being the hunted in the Masters after winning his second title in 7 days. It’ll be fun to walk across the gates as No.1 in the world, said, after reaching his return into the top position with victory in that the World Golf Championships Match Play Sunday. The 28 year-old Australian has won six of the last 13 tournaments and he’ll function as middle of attention because he heads to Augusta National in apparently irresistible form for that the Masters starting on Thursday week. Australia’s green jacket challenge has rarely appeared more powerful with Day’s back to back wins in that the Arnold Palmer Invitational and WGC Match play following successive successes by Adam Scott in that the Honda Classic and WGC Cadillac Championship – all in that the previous five weeks.
Day, the 2014 champion, claimed his next WGC Match Play title when he overtook the South African Louis Oosthuizen 5 and 4 at that the final after getting through a tense semifinal against world No.3 Rory McIlroy 1-up in the afternoon. But with another decoration as well as the No.1 ranking secured, his focus shifted right to the Masters. It’s one tournament I have always desired – to put the coat on and return each year, Day said. It is been good momentum for me, confidence clever, over the last fourteen days, but I cannot get comfortable with how I am playing right now.
I have got to keep working on that the things which have caused me to win and keep doing that and after that remain focused and hopefully put on that the green jacket. While Day says he would like to embrace the fact he’s that the one with a target on his back, he’s also aware of his form in the past two trips down Augusta National’s Magnolia Lane. Following a runner-up and 3rd place finish in his first 3 efforts there, his last two were less stimulating to the 20th and tied 28th. He admitted wanting it too much and pressing too soon and at the wrong moments led to mistakes then.
He confessed wanting it too much and pressing too he’ll be better prepared. I think there is this time, thanks largely to his breakthrough major at the US PGA Championship this past year, may get a job done, particularly from the second 50% get a job done, particularly from the second fourteen days, Day said. The state of mind is different. Knowing that I have of this past year and even more so over that the this past lately been in the heat of the struggle, particularly more so everybody knows when you are standing there on Sunday at Augusta it is quiet and you are in your very own little world.
You’ve to be capable to stay in your very own world. You’ve to be capable to concentrate on what you should do so to complete the job. I am really going to enjoy it. But I did not want to do that because I knew if I could overcome the seven men, want to do that because I knew if I could. I wanted to win.
