In­fec­tion to blame

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

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.
