Jason Day Biography

Jason Day was born in Queensland, Australia on 12th November 1987. He started playing golf just after his 6th birthday after his father joined him as a junior member at his local golf club. As a junior, He was only allowed to play six holes a day. At the age of eight his family moved from Beaudesert to Rockhampton and during this period he began to win events in the surrounding districts.

Day was sent to the Kooralbyn International School which had a golf course attached and from there he went to Hills International College which had its own Golf Academy. He borrowed a book about Tiger Woods from his roommate and was inspired by it to improve his golf by practicing in the early morning, at lunch-time and in the evening. He had his first big win at the age of 13 at a 2000 Australian Masters junior event on the Gold Coast where he won with scores of 87, 78, 76 and 76.

Day accumulated a great deal of success as an amateur, twice being awarded the Australian Junior Order of Merit. He finished seventh and was the leading amateur at the Queensland Open. His amateur success extended to the United States where he won the Boys 15–17 division at the 2004 Callaway World Junior Championship and was runner-up in the 2005 Porter Cup.

Day turned professional in July 2006 after winning the Green Jacket at the NEC Master of the Amateurs. He immediately began playing PGA Tour events, mainly through sponsors' exemptions and made the cut in five of his first six PGA Tour events. His best finish was eleventh at the Reno-Tahoe Open and with official winnings of over $160,000. He entered PGA Tour qualifying, or Q-School. Placed in the second of three rounds, he tied for first in his section of the second round, advancing to the Q-School finals. However, in the six-round finals he played poorly, shooting fifteen shots higher than the score needed to qualify. Consequently, he failed to earn his 2007 PGA Tour card but earned conditional status on the Nationwide Tour for 2007.

Day won his first Nationwide Tour event in July 2007 at the Legend Financial Group Classic, becoming the youngest man to win on any of the PGA Tour's three tours. The win jumped him to eighth on the Nationwide Tour's money list. He ended up finishing 5th on the money list to earn his PGA Tour card for 2008. He had another mediocre season, but had conditional status for 2009. A second place finish at the Puerto Rico Open helped Day retain his card for 2010 and he finished 69th in the money list.

In May 2010, he became the youngest Australian to win a PGA Tour event, winning the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Day gained entry into the 2010 Open Championship after Greg Norman withdrew. He ended the 2010 season ranked 21st on the PGA Tour money list.
