Tiger Woods not impressed by John Daly's buggy

Tiger Woods 2019 Us Pga Presser

Add Tiger Woods to the list of people unimpressed by John Daly being allowed to use a cart at this week’s US PGA Championship.

Daly, the 1991 champion, has been granted approval by the PGA of America to use a buggy in the second men’s major of the season, taking place at Bethpage this week.

This is because he claims to be unable to walk more than six holes at a time because of arthritis in his right knee.

He will become the first player to use a buggy in a major since Casey Martin, who was allowed to use one in the 1998 and 2012 US Opens but not everybody is impressed – Masters champion Woods among them.

Asked for his thoughts on Daly’s cart during his pre-tournament press conference today, Woods took a long pause, before saying: “Well, I walked with a broken leg, so…”

The 43-year-old is, of course, referring to the 2008 US Open Championship at Torrey Pines, which he won despite being almost incapacitated with a double stress fracture of his left tibia, the result of rehabbing following arthroscopic surgery on his knee in April of that year.

Daly is a regular on the PGA Tour Champions, which allows players to use carts. The last time he played an event without a cart was the Omega European Masters on the European Tour last September.
