Dustin Johnson hurt in Masters eve mishap

Kevin Chappell helps his son Wyatt putt on the second hole during the par three competition at the Masters golf tournament Wednesday

"It is one of many tournaments I've lost given a certain performance on a hole or a stretch of holes", said Spieth.

Spieth will go to that hole thinking about two things: How well he played it before Sunday a year ago and the numerous opportunities he will play the hole as the 2015 Masters champion for the remainder of his career.

The Other was a scary movie made in 1972.

In advance of the biggest tournament of the year, one of golf's biggest stars is having to answer continued questions about a round of golf with President Donald Trump earlier this year.

"If I'm four or five behind going into the back nine, it's never over".

Yet this course is also the site of his worst nightmare - when Spieth put two in the water on No. 12 to card a quadruple bogey.

Day, who has finished in the top 10 three times at Augusta, has been encouraged by patrons all week, and he has appreciated the support.

Dustin Johnson's opening statement said it all, and it may have still been an understatement.

"I mean, golf, it's a amusing game", the US Open champion said.

Spieth's little jab at himself was a nice touch. I was saying to Rex yesterday, I feel like everyone is my family now, because I've been hurt in front of you guys, I've cried in front of you guys now.




Without the 7, Spieth would be 1-under-par on No. 12 in competition.

And five-time major victor Phil Mickelson, two months shy of his 47th birthday, will try to replace Jack Nicklaus as the oldest champion in Masters history.

Spieth had handled No. 12 well until last year's final round. "I think that's part of what makes putting so hard here".

"To hit the shots I needed to at the right time and give myself a cushion to play the last couple [of] holes, it was special", Fowler said. "And if it doesn't happen this year, then I'll be ready the next year to do it".

"I tapped it in, Arnie (Palmer) style", he said. It was really the same thing. "Then I missed that putt on 16 and that took some air out". Should Johnson, who clinched his first and so far only major at last year's U.S. Open, win this week he would become the first golfer other than Woods to win four consecutive PGA Tour starts since Ben Hogan in 1953.

I was walking behind Dustin Johnson in 2015 as he led the Masters on Saturday afternoon.

It's an interesting tag for the World Number 9 but one that has been caused by a limited playing schedule coming into The Masters.

"I just wanted to say a quick thank you to not only everyone in the room here, through their well wishes and prayers, from peers to sponsors to, all the sponsors to fans; the amount of text messages and e-mails that I got and my agent got, I mean, it meant a lot", Day said Tuesday.

"Records are made to be broken", said Nicklaus during the 20-minute chat.
