In case you need another reason to love Jason Day, here's a story about the Aussie helping out a broke writer

If you don't like Jason Day after this story, head to your nearest cardiologist to make sure you have a heart.

This comes from former Guardian golf correspondent Lawrence Donegan, speaking on the Off the Ball radio show in Ireland, regarding Day and a down-on-his-luck beat writer:

*"One of the journalists is out on tour all the time and he's not got a lot of money and he used to turn up every day with a shirt. So he'd have a red shirt for a Monday and a blue shirt for a Tuesday and Day eventually cottoned on to this and asked 'How many shirts have you got?' And he said, 'Seven. One for every day of the week' and Day said 'meet me next week.' *

"Day turned up the next week for 40 top quality golf shirts. He's got a new sponsor and these were all the shirts from when he didn't have a brand new sponsor and he gave them to the guy. I'd think that's such a great story."

So do we, Mr. Donegan. Learn more about Day in our piece on the PGA Championship winner.
