His agent, Bud Martin, said Day's mother was at The James Cancer Hospital at Ohio State. Day was 6-0 while claiming the title two years ago at Dove Mountain in Arizona, beating Victor Dubuisson of France for the title in a scintillating 23-hole match, but surprisingly went 0-4 as defending champion at Harding Park in 2015. He brought her to OH, where Day lives with his family, in the past month for more tests, hopeful that surgery would lead to a chance for a recovery. And it's been really hard to play golf lately this year.

Kjeldsen, who does not have a top-25 in any of his seven starts this year, stuck his tee shot at the par-three 17th to three feet and made the birdie putt to close out world No.2 McIlroy, who held a 1-up lead with five to play. "It's been very very emotional as you can tell", added Day, whose father Alvin died of cancer in 1999 when the golfer was 11. 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.

"As of now, I am going to be back with my mom", said Day.

The WGC format has seen a slight change from the last couple of years, where a group stage of three rounds was brought into play, in order to give someone a chance of progressing to the final day, even if they have an off day. I just need some time away with her to make sure everything goes well because she's the reason that I'm playing golf today.

Even though Patrick Reed beat him, 1 up, in singles at the Ryder Cup a year ago, McIlroy is considered one of the best match players in the world.

"You're playing against one guy; you're not worrying about anyone else and can't mentally switch off in situations like match play". I was contending nearly every time I played. "I think that's my advantage", he said.
