One of the biggest sporting performances of all time in Australian sport, particularly in the world of golf happened this week.
Jason Day was magnificent in winning the US PGA Championship, but he told Triple M's Hot Breakfast this morning that it still hasn't sunk in.
Despite leading after the third round of all the majors this season Day was yet to lift a major trophy in his career.
Day told Triple M's Hot Breakfast it would have been tough ever to break his duck if he did not win at Whistling Straits.
"It was imperative for me to get this over the line, this final major championship," Day told Triple M.
"If I didn't, some doubts and thoughts would start to creep into my head."
One of Day's challenges along the way has been contending with vertigo, the condition causing him to fall flat on his face at the US Open.
Day said he had always been struggling with his vertigo; the condition aggravated when he becomes run-down or stressed.
"I've got a virus in my inner ear, and it's attacking one of the nerves," Day told Triple M.
"Anytime that I feel run-down or stressed it starts to get inflamed and once that gets inflamed it starts sending wonky signals to my brain, make me dizzy.
"Long story short I fall on my face all the time."
