Daly blacks out


JOHN Daly col­lapsed near the end of a round of golf yesterday and was taken by am­bu­lance to hos­pi­tal.

Daly, 49, was play­ing in a small, lo­cal tour­na­ment at Deer­field Golf Club in Jack­son, Mis­sis­sippi.

Daly’s friend Billy Allen, who was with Daly at the hos­pi­tal, said the two-time ma­jor cham­pion’s vi­tal signs were good but doc­tors were check­ing on pos­si­ble in­juries to his ribs and fin­gers.

Deer­field club pro Leigh Bran­nan, who was at the tour­na­ment, said Daly was hav­ing trou­ble with the heat and had some dif­fi­culty breath­ing be­fore be­ing taken to the hos­pi­tal.
