The 33-year-old didn’t mince words when asked how his performance went in the first round
“I did absolutely nothing right today which is a shame so I have to go back to the pit, work on some stuff Go to the green, work on that too”
Day admitted his injury issues also made him suffer mentally on the return track
“Sometimes I get discouraged there, but that’s what it is. I just have to try and focus on trying to be patient”
The 2015 PGA Championship winner started the day on a positive note, operating at a sub in the first six holes before his match unfolded

2020 Masters finalist Cameron Smith got off to a slow start, ending up four out of nine holes before charging on the bottom nine to finish two out of 74
