John Daly criticized the PGA after retiring through 13 holes in the first round of the Senior PGA Championship Thursday.
The colorful cult hero posted a stark image of his swollen legs after being unable to finish the course, citing the ‘down grade’ tee boxes.
‘So hard to play tee boxes that are down grade,’ Daly tweeted. ‘Golf course is great but I wish they would make their tee boxes level!
‘We are not young anymore!! Some guys are ADA and we can not follow through on down hill tee boxes!!
‘I’m sorry @PGA you are going the wrong way in golf but I love y’all.
John Daly went off on the PGA after suffering what looked to be swollen legs in the Sr. champs
The former 1991 PGA Championship winner pulled out of this year’s tournament due to injury
‘But you are making holes really really long.. St Andrew’s never had a downhill tee box. Quit while your NOT ahead…. Thank you 13.’
Mail Sport have yet to receive comment from the PGA TOUR Champions in response to Daly’s criticism.
It follows Dally’s withdrawal from the PGA Championship earlier this month, owing to an unspecified injury.
The 1991 PGA Championship winner has experience with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act 1990).
During 2018, Daly was refused a cart, despite attorneys saying otherwise, at the US Seniors Open and resultantly said he would not play a USGA again.
The lovable Arkansas cult figure is a heavy and lifelong smoker also enjoys guzzling diet coke
In recent years, Daly has needed a buggy to get around the course due to osteoarthritis.
Daly said in 2020 he had been diagnosed with bladder cancer that he said in March last year had become benign.
The 57-year-old is a heavy, lifelong smoker is a proud diet coke guzzler – once claiming he could drink 20 cans in a day.
And one reporter once claimed he followed Daly at the 2008 Windham Championship and counted him smoking 21 cigarettes around 12 cans of diet coke and six bags of peanut M&Ms.
