JOHN DALY HAS EARNED $56,017 on the PGA Tour this year, making just five cuts in 16 events. The troubled 42-year-old is running out of options. So, according to an AP story, he’s considering the European Tour.
“I know in Europe there are still a million opportunities to play,” Daly was quoted as saying. “It's a great tour. Guys on that tour have shown themselves and proved themselves to be great players.”
Part of JD’s problem was a rib injury that restricted his mighty swing. He had surgery this past summer to deal with a golf ball-sized cyst. Doctors also found two small fractures in his rib area. The recovery has been slow, but Daly is starting to feel better about his game.
“Now I feel like it's all starting to come together. I'd love to play four or five weeks in a row like I used to do. I can't do that because I'm not exempt.”
For now, Daly will continue to rely on sponsor exemptions and hopes to play his way back on tour.
