Overnight co-leader Jason Day battled to a 4-over-par 36-38=74 in today's final round of the 115th U.S. Open to conclude at even-par 280 and a three-way tie for ninth.
Day, in a much-publicized struggle with Benign Positional Vertigo, was paired in the final group with Dustin Johnson. On his round, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation, but struggled on the greens, registering 35 putts. The Aussie overshadowed two birdies with three bogeys in a first-nine that included a three-putt at the fourth from 58 feet and a missed birdie from 4' at the par-3 ninth. The miss on nine took its toll, as he squared bogey on 10 to drop to 2-under total and then missed from 11'9" on the 13th, swallowing a double bogey-6, which knocked him out of the title picture. The 27-year-old, twice a runner-up in this championship (2011; 2013) soldiered on, playing his last five holes in even par to secure his fourth top 10 in this event (in five career appearances) and fifth on the season in 12 starts.

Jason Day is expected to withdraw from this week's Travelers Championship, according to Todd Lewis on Golf Channel.

Lewis also reported that Day left Chambers Bay with a neck brace to help alleviate vertigo. (Video showed the Aussie wearing it as he walked around in his civvies.) Day will seek additional treatment for whatever is ailing him. He took medications for the symptoms he suffered on Friday. That he placed T9 at the U.S. Open today is a marvel.

Jason Day twirled a 2-under-par 37-31=68 in today's third round of the 115th U.S. Open to post a 54-hole aggregate of 4-under 206, assuming the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Day is tied for the 54-hole lead with Dustin Johnson, Branden Grace and Jordan Spieth.

Day, suffering from Benign Positional Vertigo, was a question mark to even play today after collapsing on his last hole in round two. He began the day in a three-way tie for ninth at 2-under, and three shots adrift of the 36-hole lead. The 27-year-old bogeyed Nos. 2 and 4 to turn in 2-over, but sparkled on his inward half, outbalancing a bogey on the 11th with five birdies. The Aussie, twice a runner-up at the U.S. Open (2013, 2011), played his last seven holes in bogey-free 4-under, including a dramatic walk-off on the last from six feet. Day's stats show 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, requiring 30 putts on the round. His longest conversion came from 18 feet at the par-3 17th. Afterwards, he admitted that his vertigo returned in spots over the final few holes. All things considered, it was an incredible effort and execution.

In an update for Golf Channel, Todd Lewis reported that Jason Day has every intention to tee off in today's third round of the U.S. Open at 1:55 p.m. PT.

Nearly a full 24 hours will have elapsed between the time Day went down on the ninth hole on Friday and when he's scheduled to begin today. After Friday's scare, his agent, Bud Martin, released the following statement: ""Jason was diagnosed to have suffered from Benign Positional Vertigo. He was treated locally by Dr. Robert Stoecker and Dr. Charles Souliere and is resting comfortably. His condition is being monitored closely and he is hopeful he will be able to compete this weekend in the final rounds of the U.S. Open. He wants to thank all who treated him at the Franciscan Medical Group and thank all of the fans and friends who have reached out to he and his family."

Jason Day carded an even-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of the 115th U.S. Open, but he's fortunate to have been able to sign a scorecard after the round.

The theme of the week at Chambers Bay has been extremes. Suffice it to say that Day fulfilled a couple of them today. At first, it seemed that his experience at the par-5 first hole -- his 10th of the round -- was going to give him plenty of airtime on nightly highlight packages. After sending his second into a greenside bunker, his blast ran through the green before coming to rest 56 yards away. Unhappy but undeterred, he'd promptly hole out for the improbable birdie. After 17 holes, he was 1-under. His tee ball at the par-3 ninth settled in a greenside bunker. As he strode toward it, he slowly dropped to the ground. As we've been relaying to you, Day has been dealing with vertigo but hasn't been diagnosed with any greater problem. After a few minutes of treatment, he'd eventually escape from the bunker and two-putt for bogey. He was helped off the course and signed his card at 2-under 138, just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Scary stuff, but he gutted it out.

Jason Day powered to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's opening round of the 115th U.S. Open.

This is extremely encouraging given the Aussie's recent health concern. He landed 15 greens in regulation and circled six birdies today. Day also incurred two bogeys and a double, but came to rest just three swings adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders. While Chambers Bay is quite different than a standard-issue U.S. Open track, his success in this tournament is well-documented. It's a testament to his short game and sheer will, but averaging 330.5 yards off the tee today didn't hurt.

Jason Day shakes off his stint of vertigo ahead of this week's U.S. Open.

The Aussie remains in search of his first major championship victory. Historically, this event has been very kind to him, with three top 5s to his name in four tries. On the flip side, if we look at his performance on links-style courses, we can see nothing better than a T30 in four tries at the Open Championship. Day always shows up for the big games, but his recent health scares put him in the wildcard category this week.

Jason Day signed for a pair of even-par 72s at the 40th edition of the Memorial and missed the cut by one stroke.

He entered the week as a question mark, so the result isn't surprising. If anything the time off will help him rest and hopefully heal from whatever led to the dizziness experienced last week in Texas. For the record, he manufactured only 19 scoring chances at Muirfield Village this week, so that he came within one shot of advancing is a mild plus. Other notables that missed the cut include: 144--three-time champ Kenny Perry; 2007 champ K.J. Choi; Rickie Fowler; Brendon de Jonge ... 145--Gary Woodland; Justin Thomas; Scott Piercy; Danny Lee ... 146--Ben Martin; Matt Every; Martin Laird; Charl Schwartzel ... 147--Daniel Berger; Nick Taylor ... 148--Jason Kokrak ... 149--2004 champ Ernie Els; Sean O'Hair ... 150--Cameron Tringale; George Coetzee ... 152--Russell Henley ... 153--Morgan Hoffmann.

Jason Day signed for an even-par 35-37=72 following today's opening round of the Memorial.

Scoring conditions were fair and favorable this morning, so the Aussie didn't take advantage. Then again, he's coming a mysterious ailment that caused dizziness last week in Texas, so there's at least a step forward today. He hit only 11 greens and found two birdies, one courtesy of a hole-out from a bunker 13 yards away at the par-4 14th. But Day also whiffed on a pair of tries inside 10 feet, including a 63-incher for par at he par-3 eighth where he squared a bogey.

In an update written by Ben Everill of the Australian Associated Press, Jason Day admits that his health is not as good as it can be entering this week's Memorial.

Day left the Wednesday pro-am for the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with dizziness. He had sinus surgery in the fall of 2010, but this is the first known recurrence of symptoms experienced at that period in time. "I'm still not 100 percent so my expectations aren't super high but in saying that sometimes in golf that is the best place to be," said the Aussie, who acknowledged that he first felt that something was wrong during his final round of the Zurich Classic in late April. "I've had this at times through my whole career but it has really come up since the 13th hole on the final day at New Orleans. I just lost all my energy and have had moments where I feel it from my feet all the way up my body, just the shakes and loss of strength through my hands and of course dizziness. At the end of the day we are doing everything we can to find an answer and from that hopefully we can move forward and get on top of it."

Jason Day has chosen not to compete in this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Another one bites the dust, but at least we have ample time to adjust. It's possible that the conditions at TPC Four Seasons are at the core of many of these withdrawals, but tournament officials are still planning on crowning a champion at the conclusion of 72 holes. UPDATE: Mike McAllister of PGATOUR.com relayed to his followers on Twitter that Day experienced dizziness during today's pro-am. He'll return home to Ohio for an evaluation.

Jason Day turns his focus to the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and begins the week ranked 13th in the FedExCup standings.

Day landed his maiden PGA TOUR title at the 2010 BNC and has two additional top 10s in four-total starts (DNP last year). The 27-year-old is the second highest-ranked player in the field at No. 8 in the Official World Golf Ranking behind hometown favorite Jordan Spieth (No. 2). After winning the Farmers Insurance Open in February, he made no secret his goal was to be No. 1. The Aussie has two T4s in six stroke-play starts since FIO (AT&T Pebble Beach, Zurich Classic) but has had several disappointments as well, including: T31 WGC-Cadillac Championship, T28 Masters and missed cut at THE PLAYERS with rounds of 69-81. He also went winless (0-3) at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play. It's difficult to determine his recent struggles as he sits first on TOUR in birdie average (4.71) and first in bogey avoidance. Perhaps he's put too much pressure on himself.

Jason Day is fortunate to walk off TPC Sawgrass with a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's opening round of THE PLAYERS.

Oh, the power of putting. Day split only five (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation, but led the field in strokes gained: putting at last check with a clip of 4.058. He drilled home six birdies, including rolls from 38'5", 39'8" and 13'3" at Nos. 14, 1, and 9, respectively. The Aussie also salvaged a double bogey from 25 feet at the par-4 18th where he found water off the tee. Day, who went 0-3 at the Match Play, signed his card today sitting only two swings in arrears of the clubhouse lead.
May 7 - 2:08 PM

Bogey-free Branden Grace breezed to a 4-and-3 victory over Jason Day in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, thus eliminate the Aussie's chances of advancing out of pool play.

Grace floored it at TPC Harding Park today. He opened eagle-birdie and never looked back, going 6-under on the match. Day drew within one at the turn, but bogeyed the par-4 11th. Grace picked off a win at the par-4 12th with birdie and closed it out with a par-4 at 15 where Day squared a 5. Although he's 0-2, Day is obligated to play Zach Johnson in the third round on Friday. Grace (1-1) will face Charley Hoffman.
Apr 30 - 8:26 PM

Jason Day opened his title defense of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship with a 4-and-3 loss to Charley Hoffman.

Even though he's the defending champion, Day's recent form was reason enough to label him as a favorite in the new format. It's just that Charley Hoffman disagrees. The duo opened birdie-bogey-par, and then Hoffman took the par-4 fourth with a par. He retained that lead until squaring a bogey-5 at 10. After matching 4s at the par-4 11th, Hoffman ran the table with four consecutive wins (birdie-birdie-par-birdie) to close out the Aussie. Suddenly, Hoffman is the target who Zach Johnson will battle on Thursday. Day will attempt to even his slate against Branden Grace in the second round.
