John Daly has withdrawn from the PGA
Championship after finishing with consecutive double bogeys for a
78. He cited a back injury.

Daly shot an 88 in his previous round at the Buick Open, and he
was contemplating a long break from golf. His swing coach suggested
his diet was out of whack after the former PGA champion lost 80
pounds in four months.

Daly made a long eagle putt at No. 7 and was 2 over for the
tournament. But he made double bogey on his final two holes,
including a three-putt on his final hole.
