CHASKA, Minn. (AP) - John Daly has withdrawn from the PGA Championship after finishing with consecutive double bogeys for a 78. He cited a back injury.
Daly shot an 88 in his previous round at the Buick Open, and he was contemplating a long break from golf. His swing coach suggested his diet was out of whack after the former PGA champion lost 80 pounds in four months.
Daly made a long eagle putt at No. 7 and was 2 over for the tournament. But he made double bogey on his final two holes, including a three-putt on his final hole.
