Because he couldn’t sacrifice family, he couldn’t sacrifice competing, and not working. “What can I sacrifice?” he added with a smile. “Sleep.” Day knows the cost of being the best golfer on the planet because he already reached that summit. Day first reached No. 1 in the world in the fall of 2015 after winning five times that year, including his first major at the PGA Championship.
