COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — John Daly has withdrawn from the U.S. Senior Open, citing a deteriorating knee condition and blaming the USGA for not allowing him to use a golf cart.
The 52-year-old two-time major champion went on Twitter to say the USGA turned down his request to use a golf cart, which could have been allowed under rules that conform with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Golf carts generally are forbidden in tournament play. In 2001, Casey Martin, who suffers from a rare circulatory condition, successfully sued the PGA Tour to use a cart in a tournament.
Daly withdrew from a tournament last October after his knee collapsed.
