Infection to blame
JASON Day’s vertigo has been linked to a viral infection in his right ear.
While Australia’s topranked golfer has suffered some potentially permanent nerve damage, he insists he’ll be raring to go at next week’s British Open.
Day has not played competitive golf since his heroic effort in the US Open where he overcame collapsing to the ground with a vertigo attack in round two to forge to the lead through three rounds before running out of gas on the final day.
Day has been placed on medication until at least October, and possibly for the rest of his career, to stop the virus ramping up again.
