JD Show in France: Another withdrawal

For those that think the RBC Canadian Open should extend an invite to John Daly, consider whether he’ll even play a full two rounds at Glen Abbey. After all, with a score of 8-over par and having just lost a golf ball, Daly withdrew with “back pain,” from this week’s European Tour event:

Big John explains what happen via the Twitter Machine:

“Over exerted on Hole #7 which caused me to have a “SPRAINED LIGAMENT RIB” in with the Doctor now….SERIOUS PAIN !” …

“POPPING IT back in tomorrow at noon they don’t want to do it now because of the swelling!” …

“Doc says that he can’t believe I played 10 more holes!” …

“Tour Doc says about 3 days” (source)

I say give the invite to someone deserving, rather than have Daly simply withdraw after 1.5 rounds as he did in Hamilton a few years back.

  • how many WD’s has JD had? the dude was legitimately hurt. why the hate? maybe focus on something more relevant.

  • During his commentary today with Renton Laidlaw at the Open de France he said he’s coming to Canada after the Open Championship. I for one would love to see a healthy Daly tee it up at the Abbey.

  • Hey pal,
    Played the new and improved Scar. G&CC last Thursday and loved the changes.
    I met you buddy Ian Andrew (played behind he and Rube). Great guy to chat to.
    Hope all is well. Want to play?????
