John Daly withdrew from the British Open after his request for a medical exemption to use a golf cart was denied. He reconfirmed bi-compartmental degenerative arthritis grade 3-4 of my right knee.
Portrush in Northern Island, where the Grand Slam tournament will be held, is not suited for golf carts and there was a concern that "some parts of the course, where there are severe slopes and swales, would be inaccessible", the governing body said.
Daly, who was cleared to play in the US PGA under the Americans With Disabilities Act, queried why there were different laws in different continents in a statement issued on Saturday. He was the first player to ride in a cart at a major since Casey Martin in the U.S. Open at Olympic Club in 1998 and 2012.
"As a proud Open champion, I know what the Open Championship represents and what a special tournament it is". He said he "could not disagree more with their conclusions".
"This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we believe it is the right one for The Open". Daly has said he's battling osteoarthritis that could ultimately lead to knee replacement surgery. Before that time comes my plan is to give it a shot in 2 weeks at Portrush.
The two-time major victor added that he was still planning to take part at Royal Portrush, saying "fingers crossed can make it through the pain".
