Jason Day Ellie Day Uber

For a Tuesday night during the week of the PGA Championship, this one was certainly much more amusing and eventful than usual and/or expected. It had been a productive day (though it feels like I don’t have enough to show for it unless you follow ALL my social media platforms *hint-hint*…), but I stayed later than I’d like to admit so I could finish uploading/formatting the various forms of content to share them on this site.

Sadly enough, my buddy Jon McCarthy from the Toronto Sun and I were the only two left standing in the media center just after 9pm. (Ugh, it’s even more humiliating to type out.)

It was a scary moment during the fourth quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night. Lebron James was scrambling for a loose ball when he plowed into Ellie Day, wife of Jason Day — the couple were sitting courtside, where they’ve been spotted in the past, as they live near Columbus, Ohio.

Ellie had her neck stabilized by paramedics and was taken to a Cleveland-area hospital, where she was treated for “concussion symptoms.” Here’s the statement from Jason’s agent Bud Martin:

With Jason Day’s first major victory at the PGA Championship on Sunday, I thought it would be appropriate to re-post these videos that I did with Jason and his wife Ellie a little over four years ago when they gave me a tour of their RV home, which they stay in at just about every tournament (including last week). It’s also fitting because these were filmed shortly after Day’s first close call at a major when he finished T2 at the 2011 Masters.

These give you a good look at the Days just being the Days and what down-to-earth and wonderful people they are. Enjoy!

In the summer of 2004, Jason Day had breakfast sitting in the Lodge at Torrey Pines on Sunday before the final round of the Junior World Championships at Torrey Pines’ South Course. He remembers not having an appetite because he was so nervous. At the end of that day, he hoisted the trophy and became the best amateur in the world. Eleven years later, Day found himself in a familiar setting, eating at almost the same table he did when he was 16, but as a golfer, he had matured with each year and he didn’t have the same tense nerves this time around.

Heading into the week, Day had a feeling he was going to win this week. He told his wife Ellie that this year was different than the past seven years on the PGA Tour. They both have been expecting big things from Day, who was plagued with injuries last season, in 2015.

Lindsey pranks Tiger with the squirrel

As I said earlier today, I hoped the Internationals would turn the momentum to their favor after the weather delay, and indeed, that’s exactly what happened. At the much-needed timeout for the International team, they were down to the seemingly indomitable Americans in five matches and all square in one of them. It wasn’t looking good.

In fact, it seemed fathomable that the Presidents Cup would be clinched by the U.S. before Sunday Singles rolled around. Not so fast! I watched the first two matches finish on 18, and boy, the atmosphere was electric and you could feel the energy of the International team, which, no doubt, has a ton of heart.

Day is tired

Earlier this week Jason Day pulled out of the Memorial Tournament because after playing the last three in a row, he was tired and needed a break before the US Open. Day and his wife Ellie, a native of Lucas, Ohio, built a house in the Columbus area and are in the process of moving in. During Jack Nicklaus’ presser on Tuesday, a reporter informed him that Day was given playing privileges at Muirfield Village yet had withdrawn from the event.

Jason and Ellie Day's Christmas card this year...maybe?

You’ve seen Jason Day and his wife Ellie talk about living in an RV while they’re on the road. And you’ve seen Jason and Ellie give a tour of the inside of their bus. Now, Jason, who finished tied for second in his first appearance at Augusta, looks back at the Masters.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA — I know I’ve been such a tease after I posted Part I of “Jason Day and Jason Day’s Wife Unplugged,” and made you wait four whole days for Part II. (Sorry!) Alright, ready to see the inside of the bus? It’s a little longer than the first segment, but that’s only because Jason wanted to give a very thorough tour. If for some reason you can’t sit through five whole minutes, then at least be sure to check out the last 30 seconds or so — it’s pretty funny and you’ll learn more about Jason’s off-the-course personality.

Jason and Ellie Day with their pups, Charlie and Lola

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA — On Wednesday evening I stopped by Motorcoach Resort, the RV park for PGA Tour players at The Heritage, to visit with Jason Day and his wife Ellie (whom you may know as “Jason Day’s wife” from Sunday at the Masters) and hang in their bus.

The Days, along with their dogs Charlie and Lola, stay in their home away from home, during tournament weeks. (No, they don’t usually drive it themselves from one city to another — the Tour has a service.) “It’s certainly made me a lot of money,” said Jason, prompting Ellie to chime in and clarify why they prefer RV life (see video). Classic husband-wife moment!

Day: Clutch at Augusta!

Less than a year ago, Jason Day backed into his first PGA Tour victory, chunking a shot into the water on the 72nd hole, at the Byron Nelson Championship. (Luckily, moments later, Blake Adams followed him in the drink.) And in February, Day was so unhappy that he felt like he “was going to quit.” Two months later, playing in his first Masters, the 23-year-old Australian threatened the course record at Augusta with a 64 in the third round and then staged a back nine run to nearly win.
