Jason Day falls short at Augusta

Jason Day's bid to become the first Australian to win the Masters and get his hands on the most famous item of golf clothing fell just short.

Paired with fellow Aussie Adam Scott on the final day, Day, wearing an orange Adidas golf shirt, almost took the event into a playoff with South African Charl Schwartzel.

The 23-year-old said: "It was really, really good to be in the hunt for the Masters, and obviously to be one of the first Aussies to win the Masters was special, too."

Day spent the first day learning the course by watching Rory McIllroy hit a 65 to lead the event.

Playing with the leader and fellow debutant Rickie Fowler obviously helped as he shot a 64 on day two – one shot off the course record – to finish the day in second place.

During the final round, playing with Scott, he held the lead before Schwartzel birdied the last four holes to grab the lead, making a 20-foot birdie putt at the last to close out the win and dash Aussie hopes of a Masters champion.
