Fleetwood returns to Masters, this time as a player

"It's been kind of a fun trend in the first couple months getting ready for being here this week", said Fowler, who has a best finish of fifth (in 2014) in the Masters.

Australia's Jason Day completed a long weekend of practice at Augusta National on Sunday, hopeful his mother's condition in her cancer fight will allow him to play in the Masters.

Former world number one Day won his first major title at the 2015 PGA Championship but has 12 other top-10 finishes, including a runner-up effort previous year in defending the PGA crown and five top 10s in the past six US Open, including second-place showings in 2011 and 2013.

That's just one part of his pre-tournament cram session in which he's trying to learn the nuances of Augusta National ahead of Thursday's first round.

"Augusta National has been a very important place to me and my family for over 20 years, and while I'm disappointed, it will be good to be back there Tuesday". "I felt selfish being out there". Just to be on the chipping green, I had the hour of my life being on the chipping green.

More than a sandwich, the entire week is one to savor, Walker said.

After winning the U.S. Amateur and Asia-Pacific Amateur past year, Luck didn't make any early trips to Augusta, instead opting to first step on the property last Wednesday. "Some bad shots are going to happen, but the more committed and more I can trust what I'm going to do and believe in it, the better off I'll be". I love playing golf. Johnson has also finished in the top six in the last two Masters, placing fourth a year ago. I would have liked to have been there in some more majors like I was. So, to, do those who are in the top 50 in the world rankings at the end of the calendar year. Those were the two places when I watched I couldn't get to and I was desperate to get there.

"Every year you play the course, you learn a little more, especially where not to hit it". I try to emulate a lot of things he did. I was not about to say anything.

"Nothing's changed. I've been playing good golf and I've done everything right up until here", Luck said.

Willett might not be among the favourites to earn a second Green Jacket, coming in off a year so far that could only be called mediocre at best.

Walker said he began experiencing flu-like symptoms at Thanksgiving.

"But the more it firms up, the more I'm sure it plays tougher". In upholding a long-held Masters traditions, I removed any entrant that was making a first-time appearance (because first-timers only have won once since 1935, and even though Jon Rahm is going to win multiple major championships, he's not going to win the first time he drives down Magnolia Lane).

"Being exhausted means you can get frustrated a little bit easier and that leads you to hit more balls and practise harder and in actual fact all that does at times is make you more exhausted". "But you never know", he said. Augusta National has often left him frustrated, though he has shown repeatedly that he has the game to contend for a green jacket. The 13th ranked player in the world has plenty of game to get it done but putting has always been his Achilles Heel, and of course, putting is paramount at The Masters.
