Jason Day

Defending champion Jason Day broke down in tears after withdrawing from the WGC Match Play in Texas to be with his mother who has lung cancer.

The Australian, 29, was three down after six holes of his opening match against Pat Perez when he conceded, prompting speculation that he had suffered another injury.

But Day said he had found it impossible to focus on golf due to his mother Dening’s illness.
