  • John Daly a fan favourite at PGA, with or without cart

The PGA of America had to review his request to use the cart, which was approved due to his knee injury.

Daly was the first player to use a cart in a PGA Tour major championship since Casey Martin used one at the U.S. Open in 1998 and 2012.

"Trust me, if I could walk I would rather walk".

"I just feel obligated".

"It's very awkward", Daly said of being allowed to use a cart because of medical issues. In fact, while waiting on the third tee box, Daly smoked a cigarette and refilled his large McDonald's cup with another Diet Coke. Daly routinely outdrove both of them, but he averaged only 289.6 yards, which is a far cry from his distance in the early 1990s, when he mesmerized golf fans with his booming drives. "I can't go up past my ball and I can't drive up and come back".

After his 5-over 75 on Thursday, Daly opened up about his feelings on using a cart and his "obligation" as a past victor to keep playing.

The PGA Championship is finally here, and there are a few outfits receiving significant buzz on social media.

"My Cardinals fans aren't going to be too happy".

"It's very awkward. It's to a point where it's nearly embarrassing", Daly said (via ESPN). "Thought it'd be good to wear them here".

John Daly, caused a stir coming into the PGA Championship when he gained a waiver for to use a cart on the course. The USGA said in a statement past year that it "offered Mr. Daly the opportunity to provide additional information to support his request" but he withdrew his application for a waiver. "Ireland is big on the ADA, like most countries should be".

"Out here (I could walk) maybe four before I couldn't even swing". I feel like I play better - and always have played better - when I walk.

"I'm not one that wants to ride all the time. If you miss a fairway here and there by just a little bit, you are going to score bad and I did".

But now that the tournament is underway, it's clear to see that the cart is a thing of beauty and it's becoming a break out star of this major.

"One rule (for the cart) was to try and keep pace with the way the guys were walking, I think I did a real good job with that", Daly said after his round. He said his knee was "the size of a grapefruit" after the round, and planned to ice it and hope it's feeling better Friday.

Some in the sport say he shouldn't be allowed to use a cart, an exemption he was granted because of severe arthritis in his right knee. "I don't know. I enjoy playing, and I'm still competitive".
