“Binabati namin ang Filipino-Aussie golfer na si Jason Day sa kanyang tagumpay sa 2015 PGA championship. Lalong pinatingkad ang kanyang pagwawagi nang kanyang naitala ang pinakamababang score sa isang major golf championship,” Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said in a statement.

Coloma noted that Day’s mother is from Leyte province and that his grandmother and seven other relatives died when Typhoon Yolanda hit the country in 2013.

“Tunay na maipapagmamalaki ng Pilipinas ang kampeon na si Jason Day,” Coloma said.
