For the second time, John Daly drove into history at the PGA Championship. First he did it with his big tee shots at Crooked Stick. This time he did it with his hands on a steering wheel at Bethpage Black. The surprise winner of the 1991 PGA Championship as the ninth alternate was given a rare exemption to drive a cart at Bethpage Black because of arthritis in his knee. And even a tough New York crowd had a soft spot for him. There was a roar every time he arrived at a tee or hit a shot.
John Daly hates having to use a cart in the PGA Championship and probably wouldn’t do it unless the major didn’t mean so much to him. He arrived at the Bethpage Black clubhouse with an elastic bandage around his right knee, a cigarette in one hand and a wish that he could simply walk the 7,459-yard rolling course the next four days. Arthritis in his knee prevents that. After playing nine practice holes, Daly said the cart is a big disadvantage. He can’t figure out where he can go with it.

John Daly has withdrawn from the U.S. Senior Open, citing a deteriorating knee condition and blaming the USGA for not allowing him to use a golf cart. The 52-year-old two-time major champion says the USGA turned down his request to use a golf cart, which could have been allowed under rules that conform with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The USGA says it offered Daly a chance to provide additional information about his condition. Daly says he never received such a request.
Golf: Sunshine is always a pleasant surprise at Pebble Beach, California, and Thursday brought a real stunner: John Daly was near the top of the leaderboard. With his best opening round on the PGA Tour in nearly 10 years, Daly kept a clean card at Pebble Beach on a magnificent day along the Monterey Peninsula for a 7-under-par 65, leaving him one shot behind J.B. Holmes and Justin Hicks in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
PALM HARBOR, Fla. – John Daly has gone 17 straight years on the PGA Tour with at least one round in the 80s. He didn’t even manage that Friday in the Valspar Championship. He missed a 4-foot putt on the last hole at Innisbrook, and shot a career-high 90.
