Rd. 1: Day def. Z. Johnson, 6 and 5

MARANA, Ariz. -- Jason Day did most of the heavy lifting on Wednesday as he bolted to a 6-up lead through his first 10 holes.

Zach Johnson did manage to cut into the Aussie's lead briefly when play resumed on Thursday, sinking a 5-footer for birdie at the 11th hole to get to 5 down. But Day finished the former Masters champ off with 2-foot birdie putt on the next par 5 after Johnson missed from 15 feet.

"I think I missed two greens out of the 13 holes that I played," Day said. "I hit a lot of good quality shots, and I putted great, so obviously holing a 40-footer on ... 4, and then a 20-footer on 5, and then another 10-footer on 6 to get that momentum rolling was obviously good."

Day, who shot 5 under and didn't drop a shot to par, will play the winner of the match between Charl Schwartzel and Russell Henley.
