Day has Augusta National lingo down

Jason Day has only played in one Masters Tournament, but he appears to be well-versed in Augusta National Golf Club-speak.

At this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship, Day was asked about his Masters debut, where he finished tied for second place.

"The patrons are great. They are very respectful," Day told reporters at one point.

Augusta National has got to love that. The club  never refers to the the gallery as fans or spectators. It is always patrons.

I wonder if Day also knows it's the "second cut" at Augusta National, not the rough.
