Jason Day withdraws from WGC-Match Play

Jason Day withdraws from WGC-Match Play

Defending champion Jason Day broke down in tears after withdrawing from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play to spend time with his mother as she undergoes treatment for lung cancer.

"You can kind of trick it up and it's just a one-on-one thing where if you make a triple bogey on a tricked-up hole, it's not that big of a deal", Reed said of the format and the venue, which hosted the WGC event for the first time previous year. "I obviously have to take care of my end of the bargain tomorrow as well".

Kjeldsen then birdied 16th to go back to 1up after McIlroy was short with his second shot and taking par before the gritty Dane wrapped-up the match with a birdie at the par three, 17th. McIlroy had six birdies himself (to two bogeys), but when he pressed the gas late, Kjeldsen kept up.

Spieth's fellow young gun and high-seed counterpart McIlroy battled with Soren Kjeldsen throughout their early match at Austin Country Club. Spieth did not play well at all and certainly not as well as McIlroy. But the last few weeks I've been getting better.

Sergio Garcia made a very risky play in his match with Shane Lowry as he chose to use the driver from the fairway. Hideki Matsuyama is the No. 4 seed and has last year's runner-up Louis Oosthuizen, Ross Fisher and Jim Furyk.

Erdogan has gone too far with Nazi comments: Berlin
Mr Erdogan, whose announcement was greeted by loud cheers, said he did not care what Europe thought about such a move. "Merkel. Against who? My Turkish brother citizens in Germany and brother ministers", Erdogan said on Sunday.

The Spaniard never led on the back nine and was 1 down going to the 18th. None of his round-robin matches made it to the 18th hole a year ago, but he lost in the first knockout match and spent the rest of the weekend on the lake.

A stress fracture in the knuckle of the ring finger on his pitching hand slowed Scherzer's development this spring and caused him to grip his fastball with three fingers instead of two to avoid pain. I think some of the things he has been saying so far have been good, but it all comes down to me trying to take care of my own business and playing well. "It's been very emotional as you can tell". After winning the PGA Championship in 2015, Day recalled watching her cut the lawn with a knife because they couldn't afford a lawn mower and using a kettle for hot water to bathe. "I guess that can tell you how I'm viewing everything this week".

Only nine of the 32 matches went the distance. If it were any other golfer, there wouldn't even be a hint of backlash, but as previously mentioned, Day has a history of withdrawing, either before or during the event. He revealed that his mother had been diagnosed with lung cancer at the start of the year, was having surgery Friday and he couldn't keep his mind off it.

Day brought her from her home in Australia to the United States shortly after those tests and doctors will now attempt to remove a lump from her lung. The doctors here are more optimistic.
