The smooth swinging and clutch putting Aussie strung together a five-in-a-row birdie binge on hole No. 12 thru 16 at Augusta National. He's tied with Ernie Els in the two spot on a leaderboard that is for the moment being lorded over by a young and overflowing with confidence Jordan Spieth who is sitting on a three stroke lead. This is a familiar spot to be in for Day. After all he's been the runner up at the 2013 U.S. Open, the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2011 Masters but we've got plenty of golf left to play. Sportscasters fixated on the half baked concept of "due-ness" as a means of assessing karmic worthiness may speculate that the stars are aligned in his favor and that this time he's taken care of custody of the silver medal spot early so come Sunday we just might see "Day's Break." While I don't put much stock in the idea of being ripe for victory, when you're gunning for the green jacket and came oh so close in the past it does push his desire to get it done above most of the field.
