John Daly and his buggy will be absent from Bethpage over the weekend after the 1991 champion missed the cut at the US PGA.
However, that might not be the last that we see of the American and his cart at a major championship this year.
According to various reports, the 53-year-old has asked the R&A for permission to use a cart in this year’s Open Championship at Royal Portrush.
An R&A spokesperson said: "We have received a request from John Daly for permission to use a buggy at The Open and it is currently under consideration."
The winner of the Claret Jug in 1995, Daly is eligible to compete in the world’s oldest professional golf tournament until he turns 60. However, there is no precedent for a player using a buggy in the championship.
The decision by the PGA of America to grant Daly special dispensation to use a buggy in the US PGA Championship this week has divided opinion. However, it did little to help his score as he carded rounds of 75 and 76 to finish on 11-over-par – his tenth consecutive missed cut in the majors.
