Though it's the first major of the 2012 PGA Tour season. Some golfers are still fighting off injuries this week at Augusta National.
Two players, Jason Day and Sergio Garcia, both have minor injuries heading into round one on Thursday.
Australia's Day, is trying to shake off a left ankle injury that he sustained a week ago. He is currently receiving treatments to make sure he is as fit as possible when the tournament begins.
“It’s nothing big and, at this stage, I intend to play,” Day said in an Australian Associated Press interview. “There was discomfort but it would take a lot for me to miss a Masters.”
Garcia, is fighting off an infected middle finger on his left hand.
If this sounds familiar with him, it is. It's the same finger that plagued him in 2011, at the Open Championship qualifier in Dallas, TX.
As with Day. This injury is certainly not going to keep Garcia from teeing it up at The Masters.
Although, one player as we reported earlier this week, has been for4ced to withdraw from the 2012 Masters.
Dustin Johnson, re-aggravated his back injury lifting a jet ski out of the water last week.
