St Jude Golf

Hard-living John Daly collapsed at the end of a golf tournament on Saturday and was taken to hospital immediately for treatment. After several hours there, Daly was diagnosed with a collapsed lung and released shortly after. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Daly was playing in a small event at Deerfield Gold Club in Missouri in soaring heat when he began to have breathing difficulties towards the end of his round. A friend of Daly’s said the two-time major winner’s vital signs were good upon arrival. An MRI revealed a collapsed lung.

”He was struggling pretty badly right before he collapsed. He was even telling friends he still wants to play (Sunday),”¬†Deerfield club pro Leigh Brannan said.

Daly, the most colorful character in PGA TOUR history for his rock n’ roll lifestyle, recently made the headlines when he hurled a 6-iron into Lake Michigan during the PGA Championship.
