Jason Day wins first Tour title: I wanted to quit golf after some tough times


As he prepares for the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, Jason Day will have a lot of goals in mind. In light of Day’s win at the AT&T Byron Nelson, he can be a great optimist. Jay is back in the top 20 for the first time in a long time as a result of this. In the aftermath of his victory on the PGA Tour, Day could not hide his emotions and it was evident that he felt a great sense of achievement. During the past few years, this 35-year-old golfer has faced a number of difficult challenges in his life. There was nothing, however, that could prevent him from expressing his love of golf and not giving up on what he wanted to achieve. Day faced injury and illness, but the loss of his mother was one of the hardest moments for him. There was even a time when he considered ending his golf career, but the love he had for the game was stronger than anything else.

“It was very emotional to go through and to experience what she was going through, then I had injuries on top of all of that going on in my life,” -he said, as quoted by “To be honest, I was very close to calling it quits. I never told my wife that, but I was okay with it, just because it was a very stressful part of my life.”

His wife, Ellie, was his biggest supporter after all. Without her support, he would hardly have been able to achieve such an important victory. Jason showed that you should never give up and that despite everything you can always be a winner!

“Ellie, she never gave up on me trying to get back to the winner’s circle again. She just always was pushing me to try and get better,” -Day continued. “It feels strange to be sitting here. I don’t know how else to explain it. To go through what I went through and then to be able to be a winner again and be in the winner’s circle is very pleasing.”
