Golf’s World Number 1 Jason Day has been awarded with the 2015 Don Award from the Australian Sports Hall of Fame on 21 October. The said award is Australia’s highest sporting honor.

The Filo champ, who could not be physically present, made his acceptance speech via a video message from his home in Ohio.  “I am extremely humbled and honoured to win such a prestigious award like the Don Award,” said Day.

Accepting The Don on Jason’s behalf was his Filipina mother, Denning Day, to whom he dedicated the award.

“My mum Dening is here and I couldn’t think of a better person to receive the award,” said Day.

“She has been my biggest supporter and she sacrificed so much for me. For her to give me the start I needed, to hone my skills and get better as a player, put me on a springboard to get to where I really wanted to be which was on the PGA TOUR, playing against the best players in the world.”

“She is a great human being, and once again I just wanted to thank my mum.”
