Jason and Dash Day star in an adorable Father's Day-themed commercial

Jason Day's son, Dash, has become a bit of a minor star in the last couple of years.

After all, with how often his dad has been winning big golf tournaments, including last year's PGA Championship, 3-year-old Dash has enjoyed the opportunity to run on the final green to celebrate.

Now, in a new TaylorMade Golf commercial, Dash gets to be the star. In the 30-second spot, Dash is the voiceover, describing the things they do as a family, including playing and practicing golf. The spot then invokes Father's Day and the world No. 1 potentially winning the U.S. Open.

The commercial ends with Dash saying, "I love you, Daddy," and that moment resounded with Jason when he first saw the finished product.

"When I first saw the commercial, especially at the end when he says, 'I love you, daddy,' I just started crying," Day said Tuesday at the U.S. Open. 

Day explained how his wife, Ellie, helped Dash learn his lines and get them on track at a studio near their Columbus, Ohio, home, saying that he has loosened up with opportunities like this in the last year because he's in a unique position at the top of the game.

"What better opportunity than now do I have to get to do this stuff and really look back on it and say I did some pretty cool stuff when I was playing golf," he said, "and Dash can have that exact same thought when he's growing up, saying that he did some pretty cool stuff. He got to travel the world. He got to be on TV and do some pretty fun things."
