A field of 89 will tee off tomorrow morning at Augusta National in quest of the green jacket awarded a Masters champion, but only one will slide their arms inside the sleeves come Sunday.

Australia's Day comes off triumphs at Bay Hill and the WGC Match Play. Northern Ireland's McIlroy has found his form at just the right moment and American Spieth's record-tying wire-to-wire win from last year still resonates in the Georgia pines.

Add Aussie Adam Scott, twice a winner last month, plus fourth-ranked Bubba Watson, a two-time Masters champion, 2015 Players winner Rickie Fowler and five-time major winner Phil Mickelson and the stage is set for a showdown on golf's most acclaimed course.

"I would enjoy a Spieth McIlroy Fowler Scott Watson Mickelson Sunday," Day said. "That would be a lot of fun." Day has won six of his past 13 events, including his first major title at last year's PGA Championship, to overtake Spieth as world number one.

"I feel comfortable with where I'm at, walking around the grounds, number one in the world, it's a good feeling," Day said. "But I know I can't take it for granted, because things can change pretty quickly".
