Jason Day is a dad for the second time and, right now, a little rusty

Jason Day is now a two-time dad, with wife Ellie giving birth to daughter Lucy in November.

Golf took a back seat -- rightfully so -- as the Days prepared to become parents again. Jason Day took the rest of the year off after the Presidents Cup, and he's coming back to the pro-golf grind this week at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

In addition to the sleepless joys of being a new parent, Day had a front-row seat to some great sports in his offseason, ranging from cosplaying as an NFL sideline photographer for a Detroit Lions game to sitting sideline at a Cleveland Cavaliers game, where Ellie was unfortunately injured in a courtside collision with LeBron James.

Some rust is to be expected, but it was surprising to learn the extent on Tuesday from PGA Tour's Brian Wacker.

That's not good. However, Day should get up to speed quickly. The Aussie will be in the spotlight on Thursday, with with a spot in the next-to-last Round 1 pairing with Rickie Fowler, just ahead of FedEx Cup winner Jordan Spieth and defending champion Patrick Reed.
