For the third time in less than three months, there's a huge player-caddie shakeup on the PGA Tour. And this time, it involves a pair with a particularly close relationship.

Jason Day has replaced longtime caddie and father figure Colin Swatton ahead of this week's BMW Championship. Day will have friend and former high school roommate Luke Reardon on the bag, a move first reported by Golf Channel's George Savaricas.

However, Swatton will remain as Day's coach, according to's Ben Everill:

Reardon could wind up having a short trial run this season. With Day sitting at No. 28 in the FedEx Cup standings, he needs a solid week at Conway Farms to remain in the top 30 and advance to next week's Tour Championship.

"I lose my dad at 12 and then meet Colin, and to have him walk the journey with me, have him walk up the 18th hole with me, was just a special, special experience I could never forget," Day said after winning the 2015 PGA at Whistling Straits. "It's just – an amazing feeling I have."

Mickelson turned to his brother, Tim, as an interim replacement, while Bones, who will be inducted into the Caddie Hall of Fame this week, took a TV job with NBC/Golf Channel.
