Australian Jason Day is in the hunt going into the final round at the US Open. The 27-year-old has yet to win his first major tournament but two previous second place finishes at the US Open in 2011 and 2013 as well as a second place finish at the Masters in 2011 highlights that it could only be a matter of time.
But how much do you know about the man from Queensland? Here’s 9 things you may not have known.
1. Day took up golf after his father, Alvin, enrolled at Beaudesert Golf Club as a junior member just after his sixth birthday. As a junior, he was allowed to play six holes a day. His father later sadly passed away when Day was 12.
2. Day’s caddie is called Colin Swatton. The duo have worked together since Day was 12-years-old and he has played a major part in Day’s career to date.
