Daly requests golf cart use at The Open

The R&A is weighing a request from former champion John Daly to use a golf cart in The Open Championship in July.

"We have received a request from John Daly for permission to use a buggy at The Open, and it is currently under consideration," the R&A told GOLF.com.

If Daly's request is granted, he would become the first player ever to use a cart at The Open, an R&A spokesman said.

Daly, 53, used a cart in the PGA Championship last week and missed the cut. He said the osteoarthritis in his right knee qualified him to do so, citing the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Daly has five career PGA victories, two of them majors: the PGA Championship in 1991 at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Ind., and The Open Championship in 1995 at St. Andrews in Scotland.

The Open will be played at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland from July 18-21.
