Thanks for confirming everything I said and being aside the point at the same time?

He didn't.

You said Daly was a draw. He showed how he isn't. You said he "kills it" off the tee. He doesn't.

How did Daly even qualify for this? Don't feel like googling. I actually feel a bit bad for Daly now. He's mostly just a sideshow a this point, albeit a well paid one, I suppose. His troubles have been publicly aired so many times.

Because he’s a previous  winner. Daly isn’t much to watch anymore as far as the PGA TOUR goes. He’s a short knocker next to those guys. I don’t really agree with allowing him to use a cart. It’s a sport. If you can’t play as everyone else then that’s the breaks. And ‘osteoarthritis’ is a pretty weak argument for ‘medical exemption.’

It's not a medical exemption; it's a disability under the ADA.

Please, let's not re-litigate cart usage all over again... been there, done that with Casey Martin.  Just hoping Mr. Daly can carry some beers and a boom box on his cart.  Toting an American flag, as well.  Can't you just picture it?!

Agree.  All he needs is for the field to fold like they did at Augusta!   :-D

Championships go to the "non-folders".

Yes it is. He filed for a medical exemption under the ADA for the Senior Open and was denied. He’s not getting a cart through his ADA. He was approved for a medical exemption. I’m not talking about his life. Im talking about the golf tournament specifically.

And they got it wrong then.

It’s under the ADA. Says so right in the article.

“The PGA of America says Daly applied for the cart through its American with Disabilities Act policy and provided information for the medical staff to review.”

John Daly is being allowed to use a cart through a medical exemption. Says so right in the article. His using a cart is a medical exemption. That’s why the USGA has to review it and approve. It was denied at the Senior Open because he didn’t provide the necessary info they needed. If it was granted solely on being an ADA holder then he could use a cart whenever he wanted. He had to be approved and he was granted a medical exemption.

Those watching the PGA Championship later this month will take in an unusual sight, and not just because the tournament was moved up this year from August to May. For the first time since 2012, a competitor in a major will be using a cart, after John Daly was granted a medical exemption.

Great. Beside the point.

The article cited doesn’t even mention the USGA.

Erik, Daly is playing with a cart through a medical exemption. I don’t care who’s running the tournament.

The problem with saying that is it was an exemption under the ADA (I haven't found an article that says otherwise). Which you can only qualify for with a disability under the ADA. A disability doesn't necessarily have to be "medical," either. It's a pretty well litigated statute, and I don't think the PGA of America, or any other golfing authority, gives them out lightly.

You keep taking about the USGA but that’s irrelevant. He’s playing under an ADA exemption.

Even the USGA cited the ADA.

The 53-year-old golfer has said he suffers from chronic knee pain.

So, why do you keep acting like it’s not an ADA thing?

If you’re trying to make some weird point about the difference between a “medical” thing under the ADA or a disability “thing” under the ADA, I don’t understand the point. All I’m saying is it’s under the ADA.

Like @DeadMan says, every article says ADA.

We ( I ) may have gotten caught up in semantics. If it was strictly an ADA situation then there would be no review of anything. He would be granted use of a cart automatically. He’s not and wasn’t. He still had to submit his case for review and then through a medical exemption he was granted use of a cart. I didn’t mean to say his osteoarthritis isn’t a disability. I meant to say his granted use of a cart was issued through a medical exemption. 

None of this matters and I will shut up.

Vinsk... I always enjoy reading your input.  Keep up the good work.  I have a cart waiting for you on the first tee at the Country Club of Orlando.  Stocked.

Okay. I just didn’t know why you kept saying it. I felt it must be important for some reason.

    • Point by point: • I noted above 6 holes with different options and decisions to be made off the tee. • I agree some fairways should be widened and noted which ones above. That said, the holes are still good to excellent and highly memorable and far from boring • This point about the greens being plain and flat is somewhat a misnomer. Yes, they are not Winged Foot or Augusta, but they aren’t all flat ovals either. 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 11( since the changes last year), and 15-18 all have shapes, slopes, tiers or undulations to a significant degree.  • Agreed, the course was designed to be a beast tee to green • Same comment as above, although I will say that this point also gets overplayed. It’s not like you have no option but to chip out of the rough. Hit a wedge or short iron, position yourself for a wedge into the green, and try to go up and down.  • Agreed there are no short or drivable par 4s. Those are good features but not some make or break requirement for a course to be not boring • 1 and 18 are fine. They aren’t world beaters but you can probably count on one hand the number of courses with all 18 world class holes. And Golden Age courses often had soft opening holes and their best holes before the 18th because back then Match Play was the dominant game and matches often didn’t make the 18th. And 18 is not boring at all, with the bunkering and elevated greensite • I have played the Black countless times and never once came close to a 6 hour round. Maybe if you catch a very busy Saturday afternoon you will hit 5-1/2 or so. Usually I play in 5 hours or just past that. People who play the Bethpage courses know that rounds on the Red and Blue take longer than rounds on the Black. And btw, that is no different than any other public course in the NY-NJ area except Ferry Point. 
    • I don't know. A weird one. I had four birdies on Friday and shot 87. Those things do not jive.   EDIT--Also, in case you think I may be one of those long hitters who just get in trouble a bit, I'm not. No penalty shots in that 87 with four birdies. Just a lot of bad shots.
    • Rock Bottom did wee, by me  
    • I'm not doing it here just for the heck of it - I think that BPB is wildly over-rated. I think it's boring. It completely fails to live up to what it could or should be given the property. If you need to hang your hat on me agreeing that "some holes aren't boring" then that says quite a bit. Untrue. Get an avatar for yourself, please. My opinion in a nutshell? 20-26 yard wide fairways on relatively long holes force you to almost always just hit a driver and to find the really narrow fairway. There's almost never a decision to be made on the tee about the club OR the location of the tee shot. Angles don't matter, but they really don't matter at BPB. The bunkers are set into the rough, meaning that the fairway corridors have been somewhat artificially narrowed. The greens are generally flat, relatively oval-shaped, and uninspiring. There are few that have any interesting contours, interior OR exterior. Virtually every hole is a mid- to long-iron that must carry and land and stop on the green. Very few holes even allow a run-up shot. Thick rough with virtually no recovery options everywhere. Almost no half-par type holes (unless you count the ample 4.5-par par fours). A dud of a hole opens and closes the course: 1 and 18, meh. Six-hour rounds are common.
    • I prefer the Zero gloves.  It is basically a one size adapts to all.  Feels more like a second ski and I have enjoyed it over 6 months of using it.  Reasonably priced.
