SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – John Daly will not return to finish his second round at the PGA Championship because of a shoulder injury.

Daly notified organizers late Friday that he would not be back Saturday after finishing the par-3 seventh hole. He was 5 over in his second round after opening with a 4-over 76 on Thursday.

Daly said on Twitter that he thinks he hurt himself in a bunker on the first hole and played through “miserable pain.” He said he saw a doctor after the round was suspended and tests revealed a torn rotator cuff.

Daly said he would see his doctor on Saturday for an MRI exam: “praying tests show not as bad & all works out,” said one of his tweets.

Daly was in a group with Padraig Harrington and Davis Love III.

The 44-year-old Daly won the 1991 PGA Championship, earning a lifetime exemption to the event. He’s been cut or withdrawn in 13 of the 17 appearances since his victory, never finishing higher than tied for 32nd.

A five-time winner on the PGA Tour, his best performance this year was a tie for 24th at the Puerto Rico Open.
