(Photo by Cliff Hawkins/Getty Images)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.Check it out:Jason Day told us he’s been a friends with Jim Harbaugh for years. He’s also tight with Urban Meyer.”I gotta try and play Switzerland here. Mind you, I’m from Australia.”@JDayGolf @CoachJim4UM @MemorialGolf pic.twitter.com/OuIhmWdKGO— Brad Galli (@BradGalli) May 28, 2019Day 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.
The province is ready to hire contractors to repair Lighthouse Beach in Pictou County, as soon as federal approval for the project is received. The beach is vulnerable to winter storms and has been washed out numerous times. The Department of Transportation and Public Works has attempted repairs of this stretch of Crown land to prevent further erosion. The repair job is more urgent now because testing done by the Department of Environment and Labour has shown unacceptable levels of fecal streptococcus in the water in Moodie Cove. Federal approval is necessary for the repair work to begin. The source of the contamination is thought to be a sewage treatment plant within the federal jurisdiction of the Pictou Landing First Nation community. The contaminated water is flowing through the washed-out section of the beach and into Moodie Cove. Repairing the beach is expected to solve the contamination problem in the cove. Transportation and Public Works plans to implement a long-lasting solution when it repairs the beach. Large rocks will fill the washed-out area and be covered with sand. In the spring, grasses will be transplanted on the dune side of the repaired beach.
