Jason Day might be a fan of Ohio State, but his relationship with Jim Harbaugh might put him on shaky grounds with people in Columbus. Prior to the start of the 2019 Memorial Tournament, Day spoke about his ties to two legendary coaches.

Leading up to the PGA Championship, Day received a text from Harbaugh about possibly getting him tickets. They've been friends since Harbaugh's days as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

Even though Day is pretty close with Harbaugh, the Australian golfer also has connections with Urban Meyer.

When asked about being friends with two coaches that were rivals in the Big Ten, Day said "I gotta try and play Switzerland here. Mind you, I'm from Australia."

This is a pretty awesome way of Day admitting that he won't pick a side when it comes to choosing Harbaugh or Meyer. However, he did throw in a subtle remark about how he'd like to see Ohio State continue beating Michigan.

Day probably won't have many fans in Ann Arbor after that last comment. Nonetheless, it's still great to see athletes and coaches from different sports connect on a personal level.

As for this year's Memorial Tournament, Day is off to a strong start in the opening round with a current score of two under par.
