Jason Day’s vertigo caused by viral ear infection; will play British Open

Jason Day's doctors have figured out what's behind the benign positional vertigo he suffered at the U.S. Open in June and caused him to pull out of the AT&T Byron Nelson in May.

Day is dealing with a viral infection of a nerve in his right inner ear and getting treatment for it ahead of an expected start at next week's Open Championship, according to Golf Channel.

Dr. John Oas, a neurologist and vertigo specialist at the Ohio State University, came to the conclusion after reviewing the results of two sleep studies and some blood samples from the 27-year-old Aussie. The medication is expected to drastically reduce the chances of another vertigo episode.
