    Day: No beverages going in the Wanamaker

A couple of years ago when Jason Dufner won the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, he was already celebrating back home in Auburn, Alabama, when he sent someone out for food and stuffed the Wanamaker trophy full of Taco Bell.

Jason Day’s post-round celebration was a bit more tame. He flew home to Ohio with his family and hasn’t had anything in the trophy.

“I respect the trophy so much that the trophy that I have with me right now is just going straight into the trophy cabinet just so that I can look at it and think about it every time I go and see it; and know that all that hard work and dedication that I put into it; and all the respect that I have for it; and the respect that I have for the players that are on the trophy, are there,” he said Wednesday. “To be able to have my name on that, it's just fantastic, it really is.

“It has not had any sort of liquid in it and I don't plan to because I just respect the trophy too much to put anything in it.”

Fair enough.

As for the response he has received since winning his first major?

“I think I have 150 text messages, and I couldn't tell you how many e mails that I had,” he said. “But just the support that I had, especially after the win, was huge for me. Even my peers Tweeting out to me on Twitter and being able to, and that's really what I liked the most about it. I enjoyed the love that I got from everyone, but to be able to get it from my peers -- they understood how much it really meant for me and how much hard work I've put into the game to finally get my first major, and then to recognize it and say some really sweet and nice things to me over the Internet was fantastic.”
