Jason Day gave struggling journalist the shirts from his closet

PGA champion Jason Day will give you the shirt off his back, or out of his closet.

It's acts of kindness like the one journalist Lawrence Donegan detailed on Monday in a radio appearance that show just how giving Day is.

"One of the journalists is out on Tour all the time and he's not got a lot of money and he used to turn up every day with a shirt," Donegan said Monday on NewsTalk 106-108 FM in Ireland.

"So he'd have a red shirt for a Monday and a blue shirt for a Tuesday, and Day eventually cottoned on to this and asked, 'How many shirts have you got?' And he said, 'Seven. One for every day of the week,' and Day said, 'Meet me next week.'

"Day turned up the next week [with] 40 top-quality golf shirts. He's got a new sponsor and these were all the shirts from when he didn't have a brand-new sponsor, and he gave them to the guy. I just think that's a great story."

It's unclear when this story happened, but it's safe to assume becoming a major winner won't make Day any less empathetic and kind.
