Jason Day just said some hilariously uncomplimentary things about his kids ahead of the US open


Jason Day's candid comments about his kids may have just landed him in (hot) water - not a place anyone wants to be, particularly a golfer.

The 28-year-old Australian was speaking to press ahead of the US Open in Oakmont when he was asked about his son Dash starring in a TV advert.

But Day, rather than coo over his kid, decided instead to talk about his size and gave a rather unexpected reason for it - one which his wife Ellie probably won't have been thrilled with.

The US PGA champion said: "He's only three and people forget he's three. He's a humongous toddler. He's very big."

It gets worse. He then added: "And you should see Lucy, she's even bigger. She's a fatty.

"Ellie, I think she has protein shakes in those things. I don't know what she's doing. For some reason, she's a very, very big baby. I don't know how other people have real tiny babies.

"But anyways, I'm off point now. I can't remember what I was going to say."

Talk about going off on a (mildly offensive) tangent.

Although judging by Ellie's Twitter account, she seems to have seen the funny side.

We can only imagine.
