Jason Day Can't Muster Energy For Sunday Charge at Open

Jordan Spieth Wins the U.S. Open & Second Straight Major
Jordan Spieth emerges from an intense finish at the 2015 U.S. Open to win his second straight major, preserving his chance at the Grand Slam.

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) -- Jason Day was simply zapped.

All the energy and effort needed to get through his third round caught up with the Australian on the final day of the U.S. Open on Sunday.

On another warm, grinding afternoon, Day couldn't muster up the energy needed for the final round. Still feeling the effects of vertigo, Day closed with a 4-over 74. After shooting a remarkable 68 in the third round, Day was still on the verge of contention when he made it through the front nine at 1 over.

But he bogeyed two of the first four holes on the back nine and couldn't make birdie putts at the 11th and the drivable par-4 12th.

Day said he started feeling better after the 12th hole on Sunday after feeling worse as the day went on in the third round.
