Jason Day suffers vertigo relapse at U.S. Open
By Torleif Sorenson on 6/19/15

As Australian-born golfer Jason Day was walking toward the ninth green at Chambers Bay this afternoon, he suffered vertigo and collapsed to the turf. Thankfully, he was able to finish his round and sign his scorecard before being taken for medical attention.

About that time, Fox Sports' lead golf analyst Greg Norman quickly made his way to the scoring area, and later told his audience that Day said, "I've got vertigo."

Day has been battling these occasional bouts of vertigo; he was forced to withdraw from the WGC-NEC Invitational at Firestone last summer, and he missed this year's PGA Tour stop in Dallas for the same reason.

Holly Sonders interviewed Day's playing partner Jordan Spieth afterward; Spieth said he saw and heard nothing beforehand that led him to believe Day was having trouble. In an interview scrum, Tiger Woods also expressed concern over Day's condition and said he would reach out to him afterward.

If Day is able to stay in the tournament, he has a good chance to win — he finished Friday at (-2) 138, just three shots behind Spieth.

Regardless of whether or not he plays the third and fourth rounds, we hope Day and his physicians and neurological consultants are able to find and treat the core cause of his vertigo.
