John Daly has insisted he is not quitting golf, 24 hours after claiming he was “done” with the game.
The two-time major winner, without a PGA Tour card and playing on sponsors’ exemptions, missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego on Friday night.
He then told a Golf Channel camera crew filming a reality TV show about him: “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.”
But Daly has now moved to clarify his position via a series of messages on his Twitter account, PGA-JohnDaly.
“I’m not retired and never said I was retiring,” Daly wrote.
“I’m going to honour the commitments to the tournaments that have given me sponsors’ exemptions and will continue to try and get them this year.
“The interview yesterday caught me after a tough two days and much frustration. I have talked to all of my sponsors and they just want me to continue to play.”
Daly, 43, also denied the comments were a publicity stunt for the reality show, adding: “Not my style.”
