John Daly returns after elbow injury
March 22, 2012

John Daly will return to the European Tour for the Hassan II Trophy tournament, confident he’s recovered from an injury to his right elbow.

Daly tore tendons in his elbow hitting a submerged tree root at the ninth hole during the final round of the Avantha Masters last month in India.

“My elbow was very swollen and hurting really bad for about a week after playing in India,” Daly said.

The 1991 PGA and 1995 British Open winner flew home to seek treatment, which included a cortisone injection.

“I went and visited a doctor in Tampa who gave me a cortisone injection the Sunday before the Transitions Championship,” he said.

The 45-year-old Daly will be paired in Morocco with American Rich Beem, winner of the 2002 PGA Championship, and New Zealand’s Michael Campbell, who captured the 2005 U.S. Open.

England’s David Horsey won his second European Tour title last year, making a hole-in-one and winning with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff

The tournament is being held for a second year on the exclusive Royal Course that was built for the late King of Morocco, Hassan II, and only used by his two sons and guests. The Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed Palais Royal sits inside the walls of the Royal Palace of Agadir.

“It’s a bit like the Sage Valley course in South Carolina and not far from Augusta with regards to exclusivity,” Daly said. “You could tell it’s a Robert Trent Jones course straight away what with the run offs around the greens.”

Daly said he’ll play the Sicilian Open next week and attend the Masters— not competing but selling his clothing line and accessories close to Augusta National.
