Daly, who deals with degenerative arthritis in his right knee and said last week he will likely need a knee replacement, was the first player to use a cart at a major tournament since 2012.

In its statement released Saturday, the R&A said "we appreciate the difficulty John is facing and have full sympathy for him as this is clearly a serious, long-term condition". That request was granted by the PGA of America.

The 53-year-old was allowed to use a cart in the US PGA Championship, though he missed the cut in this year's tournament at Bethpage.

Daly won The Open in 1995 at St. Andrews.

The R&A said it denied his request because it considers walking to be an integral part of the championship. Different continents different laws???

However, the two-time major victor seemingly had a change of heart and has withdrawn from the competition, which he won in 1995.

Daly's manager said Tuesday he is likely to play the Barbasol Championship next week in Kentucky, and the two-time major champion with osteoarthritis in his right knee already has been granted a cart to use in the PGA Tour event.

"Fingers crossed I can make it thru the pain", Daly wrote on social media. I believe all who have earned the right to compete should be afforded that right to compete and give it their best shot. He will be replaced by Kevin Streelman.

But Daly's decision to withdraw might be about more than his knee pain.

He added: "Before that comes my plan is to give it a shot in 2 weeks at Portrush".

The two-time major victor added that he was still planning to take part at Royal Portrush, saying "fingers crossed can make it through the pain".
