Day, 29, said he was pulling out to be with his mother Dening Day, who is facing surgery on Friday to remove a cancerous growth from her lungs.

He conceded the match to Pat Perez after the sixth hole, moments after he suffered a double bogey. He just played a really solid round of golf and it's hard to beat that, especially when the wind is getting up. "I'm glad I brought her over here".

Rory McIlroy, who lost to Day in last year's semi-final but replaced the Australian as world No 2 this week, has been impressive since returning from a rib injury, finishing in a tie for seventh and share of fourth in his last two tournaments.

Day said he went through a wild streak after his father died until he was sent off to a golf academy, where under the teaching and mentoring of Colin Swatton, he rose to be a PGA champion and reach No. 1 in the world.

"I knew I had to play well to have a chance and, to be honest with you, that's case in every match this week". It's hard enough to see another one go through it as well.

"Emotionally, its been weighing on me for a while and I know my mum says not to let it get to me but it really has". "I'm not playing in Houston next week, so it would be really nice to play well here and get through my bracket because it would be nice to get some competitive rounds under my belt", said the Scot. "I think I did a good job of not worrying about what Rory was doing, even though he hit it about 100 yards past me a few times". The 27-year-old Irishman won the event two years ago in between Day's two wins.

Because of the round-robin format, Day is still in the tournament.

His agent, Bud Martin, said Day's mother was at The James Cancer Hospital at Ohio State.

"You're playing against one guy; you're not worrying about anyone else and can't mentally switch off in situations like match play". But he has a tough road to win his group with the loss. Instead, he won his next six matches to capture this World Golf Championships event for the second time. "No matter what happens at this year's Masters, whether I can grab the jacket or I miss the cut or I finish 30th, it will be nice having the Masters go by", said the 2015 victor in an interview with The Dominion Post.

"If I had played anyone else I might've won".
