Workday Charity Open working for Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama

Jason Day lives in Westerville, Ohio, and Muirfield Village is his home course. Tournament success at the Memorial has been elusive for the Australian, though, whose best finish is a tie for 15th.

He got off to a better start in the Workday Charity Open with a 69 on Thursday. Day bogeyed two of the par-5s but had a stretch in which he birdied four of six holes to get to 4 under.

Day’s world ranking has slipped to No. 63. He was once the world’s top-ranked player.

“I think the most frustrated that I am is more my attitude has been poor, and I need to work on my attitude,” Day said. “I don’t want to have that victim mentality and think that things are going bad my way because of this. I need to just get on with it and go play golf.”

Right at home

Hideki Matsuyama, the 2014 Memorial Tournament, shot a 5-under 67 on Thursday. “I don’t know why I like this course so much, but I do,” he said.

Matsuyama had five birdies and eagled the par-5 No. 15 hole. His only bad hole was a double-bogey on No. 13.

“I was able to hit it in the fairway and have many opportunities, so I was very happy with my round today,” he said.
