Brighter Day dreams of Masters win with mom watching

So it can be done.

Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy rounds out the top of the 2017 Masters odds at +800.

Butch Harmon laughs at the notion that Johnson lacks the right intelligence to be a major force.

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.

In 2016, quite the event unfolded before everyone in Augusta. "It is one of the many tournaments I've lost given a certain performance on a hole or a stretch of holes. But he's in some pretty elite company at the moment with how he's playing".

"Yeah, it's a really good stretch of golf especially with the way the forecast is looking for Thursday and Friday", said 2016 PGA Championship victor Jimmy Walker.

Fleetwood finished just behind Johnson in Mexico in March and beat Johnson by one stroke in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January.

That doesn't mean Day, who owns top-10 finishes in three of the past six Masters, is primed and ready for another title contention. "Use those invites to the best of my ability and try and follow in, I guess, Bryson (deChambeau) and Jon Rahm's footsteps and get some status for 2018 here in the U.S".

"I know everybody makes mistakes", Johnson said.

Rickie Fowler was listed in a magazine survey of players (who didn't have to give their names) as the most overrated player on the PGA Tour two years ago.

"They are also such nice guys".

"The game is definitely better, and from a confidence level I feel like I can do anything", he said. I really enjoy that.

Scott's short game has been career-best in 2017, and the 2013 Masters victor believes he's resolved his misfiring swing. It s a lot of fun.

In order for for that to happen, Johnson admits that his game will have to continue to be in top form.

Johnson, who won his first major title at previous year s US Open, knows the undulating greens of Augusta National are liable to be the key to victory. The four-time Masters champion is scheduled to be in the interview room on Tuesday at 1 p.m. and will attend the Champions Dinner at Augusta National on Tuesday evening. It was a significant improvement over his first appearance at Augusta National in 2014, when he missed the cut. He feels very good about himself and likes being world No 1, which was our goal at the start of the year.

"I ve always liked the course". "My short game is going to be very important around here".

Even the weather is on Johnson's side this week. But more rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast for Wednesday's practice round, with winds increasing to 10-20 miles per hour. "They say golf is played on a six-inch golf course between your ears, so mentally I think golf is one of the toughest sports for that".

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The knock on Dustin Johnson was that he didn't have what it takes between the ears to close out a major.

There was, as anticipated, a Tiger Woods sighting at Augusta National Tuesday night. "I had a chance to go, and I thought, I'll go because I just want to see what it's like and when I do come I might not be as awestruck". That's something that I feel like if I putt very well, I'm going to have a chance to win on Sunday.
