Day, who exacted the remunerative event fought out by world top sixty four ranked golf players in the earlier straight knockout format previous year would this year have to win his group after checks against each man earlier on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to get to the knockout round of sixteen.

Jason told the Yacht charter UK website that the largest win of his career after a great final battle with Victor Dubuisson went twenty two holes last year and comes back in form after a tie for 4th at Zurich Classic. He is 14-3 lifetime in the event as well as the man from Queensland would like his scopes having smashed Johnson six and five 2years ago in Tucson on his way to a 3rd spot finish.

Adam Scott, the world number nine, has been all set to play against Englishman Paul Casey, Italian Francesco Molinari and American Chris Kirk the lowest ranked golfer in the pack. Paul is the dark horse of the group having ended as runner-up in the year 2009 and 2010 tournaments.

Coming back to the event after missing previous year partly in protest to the old 1-and-done format as well as the Tucson course, Adam is expecting an alteration of scenery would help his record in the event.
