John Daly was allowed to use a cart during the PGA Championship in May, but he withdrew from the upcoming British Open after the R&A declined to let him ride in that event.

John Daly has withdrawn from the British Open three days after being told he can't ride in a cart.

The R&A announced Tuesday that Daly, who won the Open at St. Andrews in 1995, has withdrawn because of a medical condition. He was replaced at Royal Portrush by Kevin Streelman.

Daly cited the Americans with Disabilities Act in requesting — and receiving — a cart for the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black. Daly says he has osteoarthritis in his right knee and that makes it difficult to walk.

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