The field at the 2023 PGA Championship will be without a former winner after an early week WD from a fan favorite.
John Daly withdrew from the second men’s major of the season at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, New York, on Monday due to injury and will be replaced by Stephan Jaeger.
Big John won the first of his two major titles at the 1991 PGA Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana, but hasn’t made the cut at the event since his T-18 finish in 2012. In five starts this year on the Champions tour, Daly has managed just one top-40 finish and one round in the 60s.
We’ll miss you this week.
