By David Westin on April 5, 2016 - 3:33 pm
Jason Day, playing in just his sixth Masters, has already been in Sunday battles where he had a shot at winning. If he's there again this year, he hopes he'll be up against some of his fellow pre-tournament favorites because he "thrives off that competitiveness," he said.
