The 18th hole at TPC Craig Ranch (par 71) in McKinney, Texas, USA on the 15th (Korean time), Mother’s Day in the United States. The 65cm birdie putt of Jason Day (36, Australia, photo) was sucked into the hole. After making a birdie, he saw her mother’s name written on the back of her vest. It is the name she wrote down in her desire to remember her mother, who did everything for her and passed away last year.
Day, who rose to No. 1 in the world rankings in 2016, lifted the championship cup in five years. In the final round of AT&T Byron Nelson (total prize money: $9.5 million) on the PGA Tour that day, Day swung a hard hit, picking out nine birdies without a bogey. With a final total of 23 under par and 261 strokes, he beat Si-woo Kim (28, runner-up), who followed him closely throughout the game, by one stroke and won the championship. He announced his resurgence by winning 13 career victories in the tournament where he won his first career victory.스포츠토토
Day was famous as a ‘filial golfer’ on the PGA Tour. He was born into a family that did not have enough money to pick up necessities from the garbage. He also suffered from his father’s drunkenness and violence. It was his mother, Mrs. Denning, who arranged this day. Ms. Denning cared for Day with dedication, including sending her to boarding school to avoid exposing her to domestic violence.
Dedicated to his golf, Day has been on his way to success since his professional debut. He has 12 career wins on the PGA Tour, and in 2016 he was ranked No. 1 in the world. But he lost news of his win after the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship. Her slump deepened when her back injury worsened and her mother passed away last year after a battle with cancer.
After parting with his mother, he returned to golf. He was the one who was in a hurry to pass the cut until the middle of last year, but this year he participated in 9 tournaments and made 5 top 10s. He said, “I will dedicate today’s championship to my mother who raised me and my wife who stood by her side.”
