Justin Thomas withdraws from PGA Championship with wrist injury

Justin Thomas withdraws from PGA Championship with wrist injury”

During a media session on Tuesday, Woods was asked about Daly taking a cart.

John Daly will this week compete at the USPGA Championship while riding in a golf buggy after the PGA of America approved his request under the Americans With Disabilities Act - and Tiger Woods is not impressed.

"Some days I have more range of motion, some days I don't", says Woods.

Woods was battling a career-threatening back injury at the time and did not qualify for the United States team. He has played in six Ryder Cups, winning it four times.

1991 PGA Championship victor John Daly still has his spot in the field, and got his use of a golf cart approved for this year's tournament.

Johnson, Rose, third-ranked Koepka and fourth-rated McIlroy could take number one with a triumph while Woods would need to win, have neither Rose nor Koepka finish second alone and have Johnson finish worse than solo 11th place.

He has not played the Masters since 2006 and the U.S. Open since 2005. He will be the first player to ride in a cart at a major championship since Casey Martin in the U.S. Open at Olympic Club in 1998 and 2012.

The lawsuit claims Herman and Woods knew Immesberger attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and had been drinking with him a few nights before the fatal crash.

Woods had fallen to 1,199th in the world rankings in December 2017 after spinal fusion surgery as a last-ditch move to ease nagging back pain that made simple movements hard.

The 26-year-old world No 5 won his only major title in the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow, but will be unable to mount a challenge this year.

That set the stage for Woods to win his fifth Masters green jacket.

As a former British Open champion, he also has an exemption for that event until he's 60, though he did not play last year's tournament.

Thomas will be replaced in the field by fellow American and world No 192 Kelly Kraft.
