Day bound for Texas not Australia


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – No truth to the report that Jason Day was leaving TPC Sawgrass for Australia Sunday afternoon. During the NBC Sports broadcast of The Players analyst Johnny Miller said the young Aussie was headed Down Under after his final round.

Turns out Day is actually headed home to Texas for the Tour’s two-week swing in the Dallas area. In fact, Day’s wife, Ellie, had minor surgery last week and flew in Saturday night to surprise him.

“I’m not sure what that was about,” Day smiled. “I’m not flying to Australia anytime soon.”

The couple is scheduled to move to a new home in Ohio after next month’s Memorial.
