Dizzy Day declares himself ready

After complaining about severe dizziness, Jason Day has declared himself fit and ready for this weeks’ US Open.

The Australian was playing at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans when he began to feel weak and a bit shaky.

Despite holding on to finish fourth, Day withdrew from an event in Dallas in May after a bout of unexplained dizziness.

“I’ve struggled a little bit with energy sort of stuff and it all started in New Orleans and I was feeling a little shaky on the golf course, losing energy and strength,” the 27-year-old is quoted as saying on foxsports.com.au.

“But I had blood tests and an MRI scan on my head and my neck and had three sleep studies just to rule out what was going on.

“All the blood tests came back negative, the MRI was negative, so there’s nothing wrong with me…other than doing stupid stuff on the golf course occasionally.

“We are just waiting for the third sleep study to come back, but I feel good…best I’ve felt in a while.”

The world number 10 has enjoyed great success at previous US Opens having twice finished runner-up and earned a tied for fourth place finish in the 2014 edition.

However, the three time PGA Tour winner will have to adapt to the Chambers Bay links course should he want to win his maiden major.

Day has had a mixed bag in 2015, winning the Farmers Insurance Open and challenging in New Orleans, but he missed the cut at The Players Championship and The Memorial Tournament, his last two events.
