John Daly turns PGA Championship into ridiculous sideshow

Paul Newbury / AP (May 11, 2019)

There will be a legitimate major championship this coming week at Bethpage Black.

We’ll also get a ridiculous sideshow, at least for the first couple of days.

John Daly will rip it up in the PGA Championship — while gripping the wheel of a golf cart.

Yep, the guardians of the game are accommodating a 53-year-old who spent a good part of his life not taking good care of himself and has zero chance of winning.

“I think walking is an integral part of being a pro golfer.” -- Nick Faldo

Newbury: An arthritic knee is an ailment countless people must deal with when they reach their 50s. It’s simply a part of getting older. There’s ample evidence Daly’s lifestyle played a major role in his physical deterioration ... Let’s leave the golf to the real players.

1. But for the sanctity of the game Casey Martin, who had an actual disability, was denied

Nicklaus - Trump supporter and fraud artist - was outspoken about Martin not being allowed a cart.

3. Good for John Daly. He has a lot of fans. Golf is a bunch of bullshit anyway.
