Fights and Booze: A Day at the 2015 US PGA Championship
On Sunday Aussie Jason Day took home the PGA Championship — his first ever title — snaring it by three shots over American wonder-boy Jordan Speith.
To Australians he’s the inspirational pro who rose from the steepest of adversities — growing up poor, losing his father as a child and developing anger and drinking problems at the tender age of 12.
To Americans, he’s the guy who face-planted into the greens at this year’s US Open back in June, suffering from vertigo.
Now, he’s unanimously known as Jason Day the 2015 USA PGA Champion.
A champion in the most emphatic of ways, Day shot a record -20 at the Whistling Straits course, which is super impressive. How impressive? It’s the lowest score ever recorded in 156 years at one of golf’s four majors.
One-hundred-and-fifty-six-years. That’s older than Betty White.
Under 20 at a major? That’s a score most golfers could only dream of. I mean if you heard under 20 and Tiger Woods in the same sentence, you’d think he’s banging Phil Nickleson’s daughter.
So bravo Jason Day.
(Other things to remember about this guy: He’s Australian and no that doesn’t mean his preferred means of transportation is a kangaroo, he doesn't know Iggy Azalea and no, a dingo didn't take his baby.)
