Daly Withdraws From Bob Hope Classic

On alot of golf forums people are laying into JD about some of his off the course doings including a recent lawsuit over hurting himself. The same injury that's prevented hom from finisshing the Bob Hope. If you watched the tird round he really slugged it out with a respectful round of 71 considering the pain he was in he did ok, he had his rib repeatedly worked on by sports physiotherapist Jim Weathers during the round.

"It has been an ongoing thing ever since it happened," Daly, 41, told reporters after posting a four-under total of 212.

"It killed me today. I had a guy here with me and he popped it back in five times."

Daly's rib injury dates back to the Honda Classic last March when he was disturbed on his back swing by a spectator trying to take a photograph.

"A woman took a picture and I came down and separated my shoulder and fractured my rib," the 1995 British Open champion said. "I tried to play through it all last year and had to withdraw from tournaments because it kept popping out.
