Jason Day is an Australian golfer who started playing golf at a very young age.

Day was born in Beaudesert, Queensland. His father, Alvin, was an Irish-Australian and his mother, Dening, was born in the Philippines and moved to Australia in the early 1980s. He has two siblings, Yanna and Kim. His father took him to Beaudesert Golf Club and enrolled him as a junior member just past his sixth birthday. He was allowed to play six holes a day as a junior. At the age of eight his family moved to Rockhampton, and during this period he began to win events in the surrounding districts. Jason’s dad died of stomach cancer when Jason was 12.

Day’s mother sent him to Kooralbyn International School, which had a golf course attached. Later he went to Hills International College, where they have a golf academy, at the strong request of his coach, Col Swatton, who had moved there when Kooralbyn school closed down. Day borrowed a book about Tiger Woods from his roommate, and it inspired him to improve his golf by practising in the early morning, at lunch-time and in the evening. He used the book’s reports of Woods’ scores as his benchmark for improvement and as a reachable standard. His first big win was at the age of 13 in a 2000 Australian Masters junior event on the Gold Coast.

Day won his first major tournament at the 2015 PGA Championship, scoring a record 20 strokes under par and rising to number three in the world rankings. In September 2015, Day reached World Number 1 in the World Golf Ranking.

Watch this very inspiring documentary of Day’s life story.

Day held on to the world number one position for only a week before being deposed by Jordan Spieth, who won the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup. Still, there is no reason why this talented 28-year-old Fil-Aussie golfer will not be able to regain the number one ranking.
