John Daly says he’ll never play in a USGA event again

Published

on

Expanding on our treatment of the topic in the Morning 9, John Daly has made further remarks about the United States Golf Association.

Following the USGA’s denial of Daly’s request to use a cart in this week’s U.S. Senior Open at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, JD tells USA Today he’ll never play in a USGA event again.

It’s “just not worth it to me,’’ Daly told the paper.

Already unhappy with Mike Davis and his colleagues, Daly took the opportunity to criticize the USGA’s handling of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock, particularly its management of the course during the third round of play.

“The USGA just seems to defend themselves after the fact,’’ Daly said, adding that “the greens seem to get away from them like Saturday at Shinnecock Hills. It just seems like something happens every year they host an event that looks bad on them. They just never seem to learn from their mistakes.’’

Daly added that plenty of players weren’t happy with the USGA, “but a lot of guys just won’t stand up and say something like they should.’’

He rightfully pointed out that the winner of a golf tournament should be determined by skill, not luck.

Daly is scheduled to have amniotic fluid injected into his right knee this week in hopes of playing the July 5-8 Greenbrier Classic.

What do you think about Big John’s remarks, GolfWRX members?

    A physically injured player asking for a rules change? What other sport accommodates this same to be used as an example? (i’m late to this comment party. Can I take a cart to the top of the article)?

    He’s retiring from golf to become the new director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco (and Explosives).

    Didn’t he have surgery where they took most of his stomach out?. How can he be fat again after that?

    Daley is right on. USGA a bunch of pompous old men. Turning golf into game of May the luckiest man win.

    If he laid of the hamburgers he wouldn’t need a cart.

      bb. If you have ever had PF you would know why Daly needs a cart. He has a valid medical issue.

      Give the guy a break, its not if he was trying to get out of serving his country due to heel spurs. LOL

    Need to give Michelson some room after his open meltdown. These fellas prepare their game to the optimum level to peak at the event. Practicing and preparing to a ridiculous level and then have a group of suited know all’s prepare a course which is tilted towards luck, must be very frustrating.Might as well use a ball from the wizards den, which is weighted to one side. Roll on Mickey Mouse !!!

    Famous last words. Let’s see how quickly Daly realizes he needs the USGA far more than they need his circus acts

    Get off JD s back. Great golfer who understands the game and isn’t afraid to voice his opinion. He knows the inside story and ‘outs’ the men in suits who make crazy decisions. Carry on JD and stop swinging so hard – keep the ball on the grooves and use your short game.

    Does John really think the USGA cares whether he plays in their event or not? No, and neither do very many other people.
    He’s never set much of an example.

    Such love for a guy from a bunch who most likely have done none of the good he has done with his many contributions and such. Suck it up all you winners and look at how stupid the USGA is.

      Pros make way to much money to cry about fast greens. Time for more courses to be like the last US Open

    All this noise coming from a guy who has been combined Suspended, DQ’d & WD’d more than any player in the history of the Tour. He doesn’t care about the game. The ‘every man, sympathetic figure’act doesn’t fly anymore John. As Dean Wormer so eloquently stated, “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go thru life son.”

    Always the victim, huh John?

    If I wanted to see a guy curled up and holding his knee and whining, I’d watch soccer.

    I agree with Daly on the fact USGA got it wrong on Saturday allowing luck to play a big role in scoring from morning round to afternoon round!! With the USGA & PGA it’s all about money courses for horses etc. let’s play from 8000 yards give longer hitters an advantage, let’s eliminate 50 percent of field (shorter hitters)
    Lets face I do not have the respect today of USGA , I had 10-20 years ago.
    John himself has made his bed along the way & he will have to lie in it!! If his name was Woods , Els, Mcillory etc might be a different answer.

    John add the ability to use those skills, something Daly has denied himself 95% of the time he has tee’d it up. John the USGA may have some issues with the way they run their tournaments but John Daly you have had issues every time you played….

    Don’t let the door hit you where the good lord split you on the way out. Your tired old act is getting very old.

      Great comment, John will not be missed.

    Daly should have taken care of himself – he ruined his knee with too much weight – no telling what else will fail due to his alcoholism; stay tuned.
    Grow up John, take responsibility for your own life – you made your bed….

      I know many people who had knee replacements who weren’t over weight. Daly can’t afford to do the Tiger and take years off because of how he abused his body, but I’m sure as someone here pointed out, if it was Woods, Els or McElroy adjustments might have been made. The fact that Daly won’t be there will automatically drop attendance, because he always brings in the people.

    I think if Big John lost a few stones he wouldn’t have any knee problems. He’s not handicapped, he’s fat.

Although World Woods is a bit of a drive from Tampa, it is well worth the trek north for a great round of golf! The whole area had a crazy amount of rain the past couple of weeks, but besides a few flooded bunkers you wouldn’t have known (at least the Pine Barrens course)- evidence of great course drainage. The whole round I had to remind myself I was in Florida and not North Carolina. The course is tight, tree lined, and so many waste bunkers that each golf cart comes with its own sand rake. Don’t be deterred by the description though. There are plenty of “redemption” holes which help to keep scores low. I only had time to play the Pine Barrens course, but look forward to coming back to the area to try the Rolling Oaks course. The great rack rate and the proximity of other great golf courses makes this a great location for a future FL golf trip (who’s in?!? ????).
