KXIP vs KKR Live Score

When asked one too many times about No. 12 at the World Match Play in Austin, Spieth replied, "It'll be nice when this Masters has gone by, to be brutally honest with you".

Other contenders include gallery favourite and three-time victor Phil Mickelson, red-hot Spaniard Jon Rahm and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama who is trying to become the first Japanese man to win a major.

While some may have concerns that he is under done in preparations, Scott feels his game is peaking just at the right time. "I turned to the crowd and said, "I really could have used that one about 12 months ago" to some significant laughter".

Dustin Johnson will try to extend his stellar run at this week's U.S. Masters where Rory McIlroy hopes to complete the career grand slam and Jordan Spieth seeks revenge after last year's epic meltdown. But my mindset this year has been all about peaking here. "The last couple years, I've done a little bit better and I feel like I've had a chance. I got a really good idea of how to play (Augusta)", Luck said.

The 20-year-old from WA, who also earned a spot in the Open but only if he remained an amateur, said he would stay in the USA for the immediate future and hope for invitations to enough events for him to play well and earn a full-time card. "You can never give up, because it takes either a lapse of concentration from someone else or a moment of brilliance from yourself to turn things around".

"I still think Tiger has the ability to do so, I just don't know physically whether he's going to be able to come back and do it".

"I feel for him", O'Meara said after a practice round Wednesday, according to Golf Channel.

No one doubts that Spieth will get another shot at the green jacket. It's all fractions in this game. "It's completely different from any of the other majors simply because the golf course isn't set up to kick you in the teeth all day".

Rising Australian star Curtis Luck has given up a spot in the Open Championship by confirming he will turn professional straight after this week's Masters.

"If it happens this year, fantastic", he said.

"Hopefully I'm coming on the back nine with a chance to win", said Johnson, looking ahead to this weekend. So I feel like I've taken it back up to that kind of level and confidence is high. He's a big guy, and he's a long guy, and he's got a great short game.

"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. Because obviously I was busy with my mom and busy with my family and all that stuff and not really thinking about playing golf.
