Daly quits major due to injury

John Daly has pulled out of the USPGA Championship for the second straight year.

Daly, who had been playing with Padraig Harrington and Davis Love, told an official last night he would not be back this morning to complete his second round due to a shoulder injury.

He had started with a 76 and fell to nine over after seven further holes. Last year it was a bad back after a first round 78.

Daly said on Twitter that he was playing through "miserable pain" and was suffering from a torn rotator cuff.

It is the ex-Open champion's third withdrawal of this season's PGA Tour. The 44-year-old looked on the comeback trail when he began the Open with a 66 last month, but he never broke par in the next three rounds and wound up 48th.

Daly has not had a top-20 finish since May last year.
