John Daly says he is quitting

January 29, 2010

SAN DIEGO -- Is John Daly leaving the game?

He said he was done in an interview that was conducted as part of the new Golf Channel reality show, "Being John Daly." In the wake of his missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open here, he said the following:

"I'm done. I'm done. I can't compete. I can't play like I used to. I can't keep taking spots from guys out here playing this bad. It's not worth it. I'm tired of embarrassing myself in front of them (fans). I just can't do it any more. Can't do it any more."

Daly, 43, is playing on sponsor exemptions and has missed the cut in both PGA Tour starts this year. He is scheduled to play again at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He had rounds of 79 and 71 at Torrey Pines.
