John Daly is one of the most entertaining personalities in golf and at 51 years old he’s still out on the course competing on the Champions Tour.
This weekend, however, Daly was forced to withdraw from the Champions Tour’s PowerShares QQQ Championship.
According to the Golf Channel, Daly collapsed after walking on the ninth hole.

The good news is that Daly appears to be okay.
Daly took to social media following his withdrawal from the tournament to address his current status with fans.
Per Daly’s official Twitter account, his knee locked up. After undergoing x-rays, it was shown that his cartilage is soft, he has two bone spurs and massive arthritis.
To combat the pain, Daly will simply undergo cortisone shots for the next few weeks.
