NORTON, Mass. -- Jason Day left TPC Boston following his round Friday after learning that his wife and children had been involved in a car accident nearby.   The car the three of them and a friend were in was struck by a bus. Day’s wife Ellie was taken to a local hospital for precautionary measures before being released soon after.   Day, who shot one-under 70 in the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, later said in a statement that everyone was OK and resting comfortably.

It’s not the first time his wife was crashed into. Last December, LeBron James tumbled into her while going after a loose ball during a Cavaliers game in Cleveland.
