Daly a fan favourite at PGA, with or without cart

18 May, 2019, 04:20 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

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".
