Jason Day would love to have his vertigo-like health problems behind him, but the concern is still there for the No.2 player in the world.

Day revealed at last week’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions that the dizzy spells that plagued him on the weekend of the US Open at Chambers Bay returned during Saturday’s second round at the Open Championship at St Andrews, though not as severely.

Antibiotics have kept the issue at bay, helping the 27-year-old Aussie go on a late-summer tear of four wins in six starts that led to him briefly snatching the No.1 ranking from Jordan Spieth. Day will take the medication in 2016, and he admits the problem could resurface.

“I’ve been making sure that I’m staying on top of it, [but] you can’t control it,” he said.  “It will come back whenever it wants to.”

Meanwhile, what Day wants in 2016 is more victories and a return to World No.1, but he’ll have to wait after finishing T-10 at the Plantation Course at Kapalua on Sunday.

In his first event in three months, a rusty Day started slowly and never could catch up. Not to worry, though. Last year is also when Day proved himself as a strong closer. – Dave Shedloski
