Day cracks Uranus joke in press conference

The 19th Hole

Jason Day showcased some quick Australian wit in a press conference ahead of Thursday’s PGA Championship.

While the joke was made at the Quail Hollow course, it’s a story that began in the stars…

2016 PGA Championship winner Jimmy Walker is a pretty decent amateur astrophotographer. In fact, he’s even sold some images to NASA. Not bad.

So when Walker hosted the Champions Dinner this week for all the past PGA winners, he was generous enough to give them all telescopes.

Day, the 2015 champion, was asked about the telescope during a press conference on Wednesday and grabbed his window of opportunity with both hands…

Well played Jason!

That said, the world number seven has been winless for 15 months and if he doesn’t lift some silverware soon, he might be using that telescope to look for his next victory…
