Jason Day makes caddie change, keeps Colin Swatton as swing coach

Jason Day's longtime coach is no longer his caddie.

Nobody was expecting this, not even in a season which has seen Phil Mickelson break-up with Jim "Bones" Mackay and Rory McIlroy firing JP Fitzgerald. "I never wanted it to turn into a toxic relationship, where he's taken me from where I was as a 12-year-old kid to where I am today and I'm not talking to him anymore". I could have him on the bag next year.

Swatton has been more than just Day's instructor and caddie.

Day was a 12-year-old in Australia who got caught up in drinking and fighting after his father died.

Delaware River Basin Commission moves toward fracking ban
The resolution requires the director to publish for public comment new regulations by November 30. The Delaware watershed supplies Philadelphia and half of New York City with drinking water.

Swatton and Day have known each other dating back to when Day was a student and Swatton a golf coach at the Koralbyn International School in Queensland, where Day was sent by his mother following his father's death.

They were butting heads on the course, and Day found himself blaming Swatton for things Swatton couldn't control. Day is having a tough year, however, he has fallen to number nine in the world and needs a good week at the BMW Championship in Lake Forest, Illinois just to reach the FedEx Cup finale next week. "Obviously this is a very hard time for both of us with regards to we had a relationship for so long, my caddie for 11 years". "It's just the chemistry between me and Col just slowly over time. and it's more my fault really, because he's out there trying to do the best job he can, and unfortunately, sometimes it just doesn't work out".

Day was clearly the best player in the world for the second half of 2015 and the first part of 2016, clinching his first major at the PGA Championship, but has struggled in relative terms lately, slipping to his current ranking of ninth.

Day said Reardon's visa expires at the end of the month, and that former player David Lutterus would caddie for him at the Presidents Cup. A high school friend, Luke Reardon, will work for Day the next two weeks.

They recorded the album in Los Angeles with McCartney on the drums and Timberlake adding vocals to the album. Foo Fighters are promoting their next album Concrete and Gold by opening a bar in London.

"Like I said, nothing is broken".

Day reiterated, though, that Swatton is "not out of my world one bit".

Swatton did not come to the BMW Championship and did not immediately respond to a message left on his phone seeking comment. Once again, he's my coach and always will be.

"I talked to him for about 25 minutes to an hour last week".

British Foreign Secretary visits Caribbean
Communication to the numerous islands was lost in the storm, and damage assessments are slow. "They don't know what to do". So far, 20 tons of United Kingdom aid has arrived in the region - including 2,500 shelter kits and 2,300 solar lanterns.

"... Obviously, I know there's a relationship there and me and him have been inseparable since the day I came out". "It's always hard because we've been a team for so long".
