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.

    • I said 4-6, which is round dependent for sure. If my timing is on I can strike a lot of very solid feeling shots, but the clubs I use could be masking those off center hits with the forgiveness built into them. I can also mishit pretty horribly those same rounds. If I'm having a really bad round I'd probably struggle to hit 1-3, but I don't know that I go a full round without hitting at least one flush shot. Of course, I could be completely delusional too.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Really my second full individual round(a stroke play event), or 4th if you count scrambles, on the year.  I am actually hitting my driver and irons decently as far as path and face is concerned and for distance as well.  My driver play is going especially well considering the lack of play.  I am definitely struggling a bit with low point but not as much as I thought I would. Had some great shots out of bunkers as well. I can't seem to figure out my wedge distances as is fairly obvious from this round.  My new Glide 2.0 wedges are confusing me a bit on some controlled distance shots.  I kind of miss my Edel wedges for that.  My touch around the greens is just not in form right now as would be expected.  I had some three putts out there but these greens are some of the toughest multi tiered greens I have played on.  We played with a scratch guy out there who shot a 77.  If i catch one thin or toe it a bit the hand also is in a fair amount of pain yet.  I look forward to the continued healing in the hand as far as that goes.   If i can avoid injuring myself this winter I hope to play a lot more next season.  Hopefully I can get out to Erin Hills and Sand Valley.  If anyone would be interested in playing theses courses next year with me, let me know. I am a bit on the fence over if I should work on the swing and try and get rid of the Furyk/Moore like loop or if I should just own it as it seems to be giving me the best face/path relationship I have maybe ever had.  At the end of the day if I can shoot in the low 80's from time to time next season I think it should be a lot of fun to play again.  
    • I’m typically around 4-6 if not even a bit higher. My issues come when I miss I miss big and start bringing big and crooked numbers into play
    • I don't know that that is accurate, and it definitely depends on the state.  In Colorado and California, for example, medical marijuana is exactly the same as the recreational strains available in dispensaries.  The difference is the level of taxation.  I did find one article that stated that 14 states limit THC potency, but after researching state-by-state wasn't able to pin that down.  I don't disagree that it's possible, but will argue the efficacy of doing so.  But to your point - Florida is considering legislation to limit the potency to 10% THC because levels above that "can induce psychosis in some users" (anyone seen Reefer Madness? 😄) A fools errand - the pot our parents smoked was around 7%, with the high-end "sinsemilla" coming in at around 9.5%.  It still gets you high.  Admittedly, the strains produced these days are much stronger, with 18-20% being considered high potency, and 30% being the upper limit for flower.  Extracts from marijuana plants, like hash oil, generally come in between 50 - 80%. To tie it all back together so I'm less off topic - regardless of the THC level, marijuana impairs a person mentally more so today than it did 20 years ago.  Golf is proven to have a significant mental component, aligned closely with the physical aspects of the game.  Thus weed absolutely has a negative impact on ones golf performance - though it might make a shitty round more fun.
