Thanks, pal: Day inspired by Tiger's text

May 07, 2018

There were no shortage of text messages coming through Jason Day’s phone on Saturday night with the Australian two strokes clear of the field at the Wells Fargo Championship. One, however, stood out. “Tiger [Woods] texted me last night,” Day said. “He said, ‘Great playing [Saturday], get this thing done.’” Day did get it done, outlasting Nick Watney and Aaron Wise for his second victory this season with a closing-round 69. But having Woods, who has become good friends with Day and something of a mentor, there for a pep talk was hugely motivational.
