Jason Day

Augusta, Georgia, USA

Quick Quotes

Q. You're playing with Tiger the first couple rounds.

JASON DAY: Who me? I had no idea. That's exciting. I'm happy about that. That's a good pairing. I had no idea. As long as I beat that old man, I'm happy.

Q. I'm not sure who said it, but they said playing with Tiger can almost be like an extra shot per round because of all the movement from the gallery. Do you subscribe vibe to that?

JASON DAY: Not really. As long as you're concentrating on what you need to do, then it shouldn't matter, people moving. I've played out here a long time, and I think there's guys that don't like people moving around the greens, but for the most part I've never really been too distracted with people moving. Like I said, if I am distracted, just come off and readjust and go in again.

Q. You mentioned you got here Friday. I saw you on the range during the ANWA practice rounds and on the range again right before the ANWA final round or shortly before they went off. What were you working on? What were you grinding on?

JASON DAY: Do you have all day?

Well, so essentially I was battling a two-way miss with my shoulders getting a little bit too horizontal or parallel to the ground. Once I start to rotate, my shoulders kind of level to the ground, my arms kind of go away from my body and I kind of dump it in the turf and I get like a right and a left. When I try and hit a draw and I miss it right, I don't want to do that, then I get the pull hook left. Essentially I'm just trying to stay better in the spine angle but get a little bit more pitch through my shoulders. That way my right arm can go under my body a little bit better.

Q. Do you take a lot of ownership of your swing these days?

JASON DAY: No. Well, I kind of have to to a certain degree just because I don't really see Chris a lot, but like we talk pretty much every day. I kind of have to (inaudible) at the top of my swing and kind of the feels that I have. It's always been a work in progress, but I definitely see a lot more light at the end of the tunnel now than I did a year ago.

Q. I read somewhere that Augusta owes you one --

JASON DAY: No, Augusta doesn't owe anyone.

Q. Do you feel like you have sort of unfinished business?

JASON DAY: I'm not really trying to think about it too much. I think if I try and think about, hey, golf doesn't owe anything to me. Like I owe a lot to golf, and especially this place here, as well, because of just the opportunity that I've had. I've just got to not think about it, not get too worked up about it. To be honest, just trying to get my ball going straight where I need it to go, so that's kind of taken most of the pressure off my head.

It's going to be fun knowing I'm playing with Tiger and Max the first two rounds. That's exciting. Obviously I'm looking forward to the challenge, especially the first two days. It's going to be tough.

Q. How important is it to get off to a decent start?

JASON DAY: It's very important, yeah. Based off what kind of weather we're going to get and where the conditions are right now, it'll be interesting to see what the final scoring will be, but don't get yourself too far out of the tournament come Thursday and Friday just because of the weather.

Yeah, like you said, it's important to get off to a good start, so -- I've heard a lot of the thunderstorms are mid-morning. We'll see. Be good, hopefully.

Q. These last nine holes, are you starting to see it come out a little bit straighter?

JASON DAY: Yeah, no, it's feeling good. Still probably go to the range and hit some more. Sometimes you've just got to put in the work. You've just got to grind. Don't think about it, and you just do it. You get up and you have to do it. It's not like, hey, I'm going to taper off here and there. Like yeah, I would love to taper off coming into this event, but unfortunately I've got to think about not only this event but the future events I'm going to play in, and sometimes you've just got to get in there and grind it out.
