"I wanted to play at Quail Hollow, but to be honest with you, I wasn't ready yet to start the grind of practicing and preparing and logging all those hours again, " Woods said of the Wells Fargo Championship, which he skipped two weeks ago.

"John Daly getting a cart at the PGA Championship is completely. complicated", writes the Washington Post.

The emotional aftermath of the Masters proved to be much to overcome for Woods, who didn't play any serious golf until April 27, almost two weeks following the victory. But the field will also be unique because it will include one competitor moving about the course in a golf cart.

Tiger Woods was asked about the PGA's decision during his press conference this morning.

"As far as J.D. taking a cart", Woods said with a pause, "I walked with a broken leg, so".

"I think he's grateful and thankful that his kids get to see a little bit of what he was before they were around", the two-time PGA Championship victor said.

He was referring to his fabled 2008 U.S. Open win, when he had tibial stress fractures and a torn anterior cruciate ligament that required reconstructive surgery days after the win.

"I will meet with John and just talk through where he can go and can't go", Haigh said. Only twice did he intentionally not play between majors.

The public course has a sign on the first tee saying: "The Black Course Is An Extremely Difficult Course Which We Recommend Only For Highly Skilled Golfers".

Daly is not the first player to use a cart in a major.

Daly has arthritis in his right knee and he requested to be allowed to use a cart because of medical issues.

Vijay Singh became the third former champion to withdraw from the PGA Championship. He was replaced by Kelly Kraft.

Daly is ranked a lowly 1,848 in the world but makes the field at Bethpage Black for the year's second major due to his victory at the 1991 USPGA.
