Day, Spieth ready to resume rivalry at Aussie Open

Jason Day is desperate to add the Australian Open title to his career honor roll and would love nothing better than to do it after going swing-for-swing with Jordan Spieth in the final round this week.
The 30-year-old former world number one has endured a poor season by his own lofty standards and is hoping that the Australian Golf Club, where he last played as a teenager, might offer up his first title of 2017.
World number two Spieth has finished first, second and first at the tournament in the three years since Day last played for the Stonehaven Cup though, and the Australian knows he will need to be on top of his game to better the American.
“I would love to play with Spieth on Sunday, last group, that would be the greatest thing,” the Australian told reporters on Wednesday.
”The Australian Golf Club is kind of suited to his eye, he hits it very straight, which is what you need around here. This course does suit up well for him and I think it does for me as well, as long as long as I‘m driving it straight.
“Fingers crossed, I can keep driving the ball better this week and just try and get myself in contention.”
