Just a week before the first major of the rescheduled PGA Tour season, former world No.1 Jason Day has announced that he has split from his longtime coach Colin Swatton.
Day, 32, teamed-up with Swatton when he was just 12-years-old and enrolled in a golf boarding school in Australia.
Until 2017, Swatton had also served as Day’s caddie.

grateful for all he has done for my golf and his continued friendship.”
Swatton added: “I am proud of what was accomplished but even more so I am proud of the man Jason has become.
