Aussie Jason Day Has Recruited A Golf Legend To Help Him Out

When it comes to mentors, Jason Day is being guided by the best in the game.

Yes, literally the best.

The Aussie has revealed that golf legend Tiger Woods has been coaching him while he continues on his long road to recovery.

32-year-old Day has been struggling with a chronic back injury for some time now - and he's in the middle of searching for a full-time head coach to help him overcome the pain during his swings.

So who else better to help than a 15-time Major winner and sports icon?

It's understood former world number one Day has been working very closely with Woods as he looks to relaunch his career and challenge for more trophies.

"I have been actually talking to Tiger about his swing and what he's been doing because I think he has the best swing out there, especially the iron swing. It's amazing," Day said.

"He's gone through some back issues and he's doing a lot of good things to try and alleviate his pain and I just feel like I ask questions and he's willing to answer them and I'm trying to make changes now with my swing."

Day, who is currently playing in the FedEx Cup, insists he's been putting in the hard yards off the course to ensure his golfing career continues long into the future.

"I'm not 21 anymore," Day said.

"So if I want to add any more years to my career, I have to put in the work in regards to doing what I'm doing right now."

And you can understand why Day has turned to Woods for some advice.

Woods, who is arguably the greatest golfer of all time, first joined the PGA Tour in 1996 and is still going to this day at the age of 44.
