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.

    • Only slight overrated. I don't think there is any more buzz around it than it did. It's not like they pulled in 'million dollah sponsors' or anything to begin with.   I don't blame Inkster and Co. for overselling it a bit. I would if I were her. But yeah, the whole things a bit meh.    
    • OK I have been stewing over this topic since I first saw it.  So here goes my "Etiquette Confession" This takes me way back, like way back.  Senior year in High School.  District Golf Tourney.  I was ranked #2 in the District which was pretty decent.  I was the 2nd Golfer off the tee and the entire District and all of the H.S Coaches are watching.  I was so nervous I literally almost peed myself. I wanted to go to Regionals so bad that year and then hopefully State. So I grab this chunk of wood attached to a steel rod with electricians tape for a grip and tee off (My Persimmon 3 Wood).  I played a fade back then and I had it down pat. Well not only did I pull the ball but I also hit a Draw while playing a Fade.  I crushed my tee shot.  It flew over the 18th fairway that ran parallel to the 1st fairway and sure enough it looks as if it goes O.B.   One of the guys from another H.S starts laughing loud and hard and loudly states "That's the longest Drive I have ever seen"  Let me add that the two of us had tied earlier in a duel match so we had a side bet going on this round. I pull out a provisional and I just drilled it the exact same way in the exact same spot.  Now my shoulders drop and I go to my bag for my 3rd golf ball. #3 - Identical to the first two, I am lost and have no idea what golf is any longer.  I go over to my bag and pick it up and the same guy asks if I am going to hit a 4th ball and I said "No, one of them will be in bounds" Ok I get to all 3 balls, they are all in the same spot so it was very easy to grab 2 of them.  The 3rd ball was a lousy 3 inches O.B.  I looked back at the entire group and they were all staring at me.  I hit that ball from where it laid, Out of Bounce!.   I never called it - it didn't matter at that point.  I finished 2nd to last in the entire field.  Even when I was in 7th Grad playing in this same District Tourney I never even came close to that. So there, my "Etiquette Confession" and I still am upset over that day. 🙂 
    • Sharper, better lit, night time golf swing vids coming soon?
    • Getting the best sand wedge for you involves more than just hunting for some all-occasions Magic Club. To be a decent bunker player, you need a SW with a head and grind which matches your normal turf conditions, and proper technique. Traditional wisdom (above) says that if you play out of very firm sand, you want a SW with lower bounce. This means the clubhead will cut through the sand and not get hung up in it. If you play in fluffy or powdery sand, you want a high bounce wedge that will glide through the powder without digging in too much. @iacas explains additional aspects of bounce in his forum Edel Wedges (or "Super Bounce") Then there is technique. For starters, access @mvmac's forum on How to Hit Sand/Bunker Shots.  An excellent video begins the thread. If you have a history of bad experiences in the sand, you take a bunker lesson. A good instructor could help you incorporate the basics into your swing.
    • I've been Playing Golf for: I played lots as a youngster (from age 4 to 15), but haven't ever taken golf seriously until this season. I had played ~6 rounds in the last 10 years. I am 30 years old My current handicap index or average score is: If the course is 6500 yards, I tend to play in the upper 90s. My typical ball flight is: either a high fade or a mid-high pull on bad contact. When I feel that I have hit it good, it goes straight The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pulling mid to mid-short iron shots I've put off doing this because I was afraid of what I might see, and I generally like how I strike the ball when it is good. I finally busted out the tripod today to get some clips for review and to post here especially. I hope I can get some good info out of this and will hopefully be updating this regularly (maybe 1 time per week). Thanks, and Cheers! Videos:
