Day falls back at US Open

Jason Day is three shots behind leader Dustin Johnson midway through the final round of the US Open as he continues to struggle with vertigo.

After starting in a tie for the lead, the Australian has dropped one shot on the front nine to be three-under par overall, three shots off the lead in a tie for fourth.

Day sits equal with compatriot Adam Scott, whose closing-round 64 was the best round of the week.

Day’s playing partner Johnson holds a two-shot lead over Masters champion Jordan Spieth (10 holes) and South African Branden Grace (10 holes).

Day is playing with his trainer and a vertigo specialist in close proximity as he continues to try to recover from Friday’s episode where he collapsed on his final hole.

Day bogeyed the fourth hole after a terrible three-putt and while he bounced back with a birdie on the fifth, back-to-back bogeys on six and seven and a birdie on eight.

Young Australian Cameron Smith is still holding his own, one-over through 11 holes in his major debut.

John Senden posted a two-under 68 to move to two-over and tied for 12th.
