In a shockingly selfish pattern of behaviour that has occurred more than once over the past six months, young Australian golfer Jason Day has passed up a chance at winning golf’s finest trophy, The Claret Jug, choosing instead to stare helplessly at his ordinary newborn baby.
Apparently Day, 24, cannot display the common courtesy of playing in a Major Championship for which he is exempt whilst thousands of others would give their left testicle to get in. Many would give both.
"I want to spend time with Dash James, my newborn son who was born Tuesday," the brazenly disrespectful Day told reporters, showing a wanting lack of gratitude toward his real family, the European and PGA Tours.
“It’s such a special time," he continued, obviously too self-absorbed to realize that first few weeks with a newborn involves nothing more than sleep deprivation, whining, buying nipple pads for angry mummy, and more filthy nappies than in a Sergio Garcia locker room, while he could be out in the open air (where there’s no smell of baby sick) in front of the world winning the British Open.
“It’s an absolute disgrace”, said punter Tom Cleary, 48, outside a bookie shop in Dublin. “I had Day at 33’s for Lytham and do you think will paddypower give me my money back? He will in his arse.”
Tim Finchem and George O’Grady, directors of the PGA and European Tours are meeting today in Scotland to agree a framework document banning all babies, newborn or otherwise, from disrupting future Major Championships.
