Hot sale 70% discountAs Jason Day headed to the first tee in Friday’s second round, he turned to playing partners Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler and joked that he needed to start paying people to yell out his name. The Masters fans, he cracked, only had eyes for the more recognizable young stars.
Day, as it turned out, didn’t need money; he just needed to shoot 64.
"It got a bit better on the back nine," he said, "which was nice."Fashion hairpieces for sale cheap
What was even nicer is that Day shot himself up the leaderboard and into the final pairing in Saturday’s third round. At 8 under, he finds himself in solo second place, two shots back of leader Rory McIlroy going into the weekend at Augusta National.
The 21-year-old McIlroy shot 65 on Thursday to share the first-round lead with Alvaro Quiros. The 23-year-old Day did one better, tying for the lowest round ever shot by a Masters rookie.
McIlroy, Day and fellow playing partner Rickie Fowler are all in the top 10 of the leaderboard (Fower’s tied for seventh at 5 under). They combined to shoot 23 under in the first two days.
Day, who won the HP Byron Nelson Championships last year, said he learned from watching McIlroy on Thursday.
"He put himself in the right positions on the course," Day said. "He played the course exactly how it’s supposed to play, and I just tried to stick to my game plan.
"I had a game plan at the start of the week and I’m just trying to stick to that. There are certain holes that you want to respect out here, and then there are certain holes that you want to try and jump on and hopefully get a birdie.
"But you know, there’s a few shots out there that I got lucky, and at the end of the day, I shot 8 under and I’m very happy that I played really good today."
For the third consecutive day, Day and McIlroy will walk Augusta National’s 18 holes together, this time with considerably more pressure than the first two days.
Even though a host of veteran contenders — including Tiger Woods, just one shot behind Day — lurk, the Australian will concentrate on his own game.
"I’m just going to go out there and try and stick to my game plan and not worry about the score," Day said. "Like Rory said before, you have to play the course; you’re not playing the leaderboard. You’re not playing anyone else. You’re playing yourself and you’re playing the course. Popular online sale shop is your best choose.
"So as long as you can stick to your game plan and just keep plugging along, you know, hopefully you’ll walk down 18 having the lead."
