Much like Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend, Ellie Harvey, the wife of golfer Jason Day, got a lot of attention from fans watching the Masters on CBS.
Ellie Harvey and Jason Day were married in the fall of 2009, and there’s a great story about Day nailing a hole-in-one at her request in 2008. Day is Australian while Harvey is from Ohio, but the two met through Day’s coach and caddie, Col Swatton, according to the PGA’s site. Jason Sobel has more info on the couple, saying “they met five years ago when she was waitressing at a restaurant in Twinsburg, Ohio, but didn’t start seriously dating until coincidentally running into each other a few years later.”
Even though Day came up short in the Masters, there is little doubt many fans now have a new favorite golfer, thanks to his wife, Ellie Day. Day is the latest addition to the long list of our smokin hot sports girlfriends, go here to see them all.
