Daly to play Australian Open, PGA

Two-time major winner John Daly will play the Australian PGA

tournament in December and the Australian Open a week earlier in

Sydney.

Tournament officials said Monday that Daly, winner of the 1991

U.S. PGA Championship and the 1995 British Open, has signed to play

at The Lakes in Sydney from Dec. 2-5 and at the Hyatt Regency

Coolum from Dec. 9-12.

In 2002, after taking a triple-bogey 7 on his last hole at

Coolum, Daly threw his putter and ball into a greenside pond and

later failed to sign for a 78 on his scorecard, disqualifying from

the tournament.

Two years ago at the Australian Open, he smashed a spectator’s

camera into a tree at Royal Sydney’s ninth hole. He was given a

suspended fine by Golf Australia.
