SYDNEY, Australia – John Daly says he doesn’t want to know the details about Tiger Woods’ late-night car accident.

Daly, the two-time major champion who has had his share of explaining to do in an often troubled career, said Monday he just wants Woods fit and back on the Tour.

“I don’t really care what happened between Tiger and ... whatever happened. I’m just glad he’s OK,” said Daly, preparing for the Australian Open. “We need him, probably more than anybody on the Tour, to keep things going, the way the economy is.

“Tiger’s the biggest asset the Tour’s had in a long, long time,” he said. “Whatever happened, as long as he’s OK that’s all that matters.

“Golf needs him badly ... no doubt.”
