VIDEO: Jason Day Collapses Due to Dizziness During US Open But Still Manages to Finish Round

Jason Day collapsed after suffering a bout of severe dizziness at the US Open today – but still managed to recover and finish his round at Chambers Bay in Washington.

The shocking incident happened as the Australian golfer approached the green on his final hole of the day.

Paramedics rushed to Day’s side after he collapsed on the fairway and he spent several minutes on his back before sitting up:

Day managed to steady himself before getting back on his feet, completing the hole for a bogey and carding an even-par 70 to leave him two-under going into the final two days of action in Washington.

The Aussie has had previous suffering from Vertigo as he went down with dizziness on the final day of the Zurich Classic in April and withdrew from last month’s AT&T Byron Nelson after not being fit enough to complete the pro-am competition.

Bud Martin, Day’s agent, had this to say after the incident:

Jason is being treated on site at Chambers Bay, after feeling dizzy near the end of his round.

We will provide more information later after getting through the medical evaluation process. Jason wants to express his appreciation for all the good wishes from so many fans and friends.

It remains to be seen whether Day will be deemed fit enough to complete the competition.
