Day, wife Ellie welcome new daughter Lucy


A great year for Jason Day got even better Wednesday when he and wife Ellie welcomed their second child, Lucy.

Golf Australia first tweeted the news.

The world No. 2, who turned 28 on Thursday, was already planning to skip the Australian Open to spend time with his family. He is scheduled to play the Dec. 3-6 Hero World Challenge, which will be his first event since the Presidents Cup

Dash Day, 3, has become a fixture in his father’s post-victory celebrations, traipsing through bunkers and galloping across the green during the trophy presentation.
