Two-time major winner John Daly has claimed he is retiring from golf, according to the Golf Channel.
The US cable television channel has been following the 1995 Open and 1991 US PGA champion for a reality show that begins in March called ‘Being John Daly’.
And after missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego on Friday he told a camera crew from the show: “I’m done.”
Daly, playing on a sponsor’s exemption, carded rounds of 79 and 71 at Torrey Pines, the scene of the last of his five PGA Tour victories at the 2004 Buick Invitational.
Asked to explain what he meant by “done”, the controversial American said: “With golf.
“I can’t compete. I can’t play like I use too. I can’t keep taking spots from guys out here playing this bad. It’s not worth it.
“I’m tired of embarrassing myself in front of (my fans). I can’t do it any more.”
Daly, 43, had also missed the cut at his first event of the year, the Sony Open in Hawaii, two weeks ago as he bid to rebuild his career, having served a suspension from the PGA Tour for the first half of 2009.
He instead played on the European Tour, competing in 10 events, tying for second at the Italian Open and 27th at the Open at Turnberry.
On returning to the USA, he played six events, missing two cuts and withdrawing from another.
