Jason Day loses eight relatives in Typhoon Haiyan
Devastating news for one of golf's young, elite golfers.
This Jason Day news is pretty much the worst.
Typhoon Haiyan, which has claimed nearly 4,000 lives according to CNN, killed eight of Jason Day's relatives in the Philippines.
Day's grandmother, uncle, and six cousins were among those who died in the storm.
"I am deeply saddened to confirm that multiple members of my family lost their lives as the victims of Typhoon Haiyan," Jason Day said in a statement released by the PGA Tour. "My family and I are thankful for all who have reached out with their prayers and concern.
"We feel devastated for all who have been affected by this horrific tragedy. While I understand the media's interest in this matter and hope that any coverage can spread awareness to assist with the relief efforts that continue in the Phillippines, I hope that all will respect my family's privacy during this difficult time. I will have no further public comments at this time. Please pray for all who have suffered loss. Thank you."
