Jason Day is having a great tournament so far at the BMW Championship (even with a new caddie), and it just got a lot better.
The former World No. 1 was two shots back to start the day, but by the time he reached the par-3 17th hole, he was four under on the day and had charged into the lead. Not wanting to rest on his laurels, Day decided to build a cushion for himself by making a hole-in-one on the 188-yard par-3. You can watch Day’s shot below.

For his efforts, Day will be awarded a brand-new BMW M760i sedan courtesy of the title sponsor. Furthermore, BMW will donate $100,000 to the Western Golf Association and Evans Scholars Foundation.

It gets even better. Day, who has a sponsorship with Lexus, announced he’ll donate the BMW back to the Evans Scholars Foundation, which helps fund college educations for young caddies.
“We definitely, to be out here on Tour we give back a lot and BMW be able to give back as well to a student being able to go through college is huge,” Day said. “That’s why earlier I said I’m going to donate that car back to help another student because I am in a fortunate position and being able to not only impact one person but be able to impact another person’s life, to be able to get them to go through college as well is huge.”
