Jason Day breaks down talking about mom's lung cancer

Tommy Fleetwood finished 2nd in the WGC Mexico and is in a great run of form

'The diagnosis is much better being over here, she's going into surgery this Friday and it's really hard to even comprehend being on a golf course right now because of what's she going through. The surgery is scheduled for Friday. He once shopped for used clothes at a store where for $5 he could stuff as much as he could into a bag. I knew this was going to happen and, in kind of a weird way, I'm glad it happened when it did because there is a massive spring and summer of golf ahead.

He added: 'Emotionally it's been wearing on me for a while and I know my mum says not to let it get to me but it really has. I just need some time away with her to make sure it goes well.

His mother, Day said, has a three- to four-centimeter mass on her lung. "I'm not playing in Houston next week, so it would be really nice to play well here and get through my bracket because it would be nice to get some competitive rounds under my belt", said the Scot.

Kjeldsen and Tanihara's surprise victories come as Australian golfer Jason Day pulled out of the WGC Match Play to be with his seriously ill mother. "If I'm to make the next Ryder Cup team, I'm going to have to win again and play more good golf".

Rory McIlroy has plenty of work to do to win a second WGC Match Play title after losing 2&1 to Soren Kjeldsen in their opening group match in Austin, Texas.

He did not take questions Wednesday, leaving the press center for his vehicle with his wife, Ellie.

"It goes without saying that it's a real stress on him", Martin said.

Kjeldsen was 1-down with five to play but rattled off four successive birdies, knocking his last four approaches inside nine feet, with the last three inside four feet. A year ago at the Match Play, he tweaked his back in the opening round and wasn't sure he would be able to continue. "I said, 'The news seems to be getting better".

Without my mom's sacrifice, there is no doubt I would not have made it.

It's easy to see how important family is to him by looking at his ever-present wife Ellie, who he clearly adores.

"My back is fine, I'm 100 percent healthy..." He was the final captain's pick for the Ryder Cup previous year at Hazeltine and went 2-1, defeating Lee Westwood in the match that clinched victory for the Americans.

Reed started 2017 with a tie for sixth in the SBS Tournament of Champions despite a virus he picked up from his daughter.

"His wedge play was very sharp all day".

Sergio Garcia and PGA Tour rookie Jon Rahm give Spain two players in one group. "Lost all my speed, all my distance, and my mental game and thought process on the golf course was kind of shot".
