Health scare for John Daly

John Daly had an allergic reaction after taking diet pills, his wife said Monday, but didn't suffer any lasting effects.

``We had MRIs done, and we did find out what was causing it,'' Sherry Daly said. ``He's fine, and we're going to England for a golf tournament.''

Daly was not available for comment Monday. He was on his way to The Belfry in England for this week's Benson & Hedges International Open on the European PGA Tour. Daly also plans to play next week at the Deutsche Bank Open in Germany.

One of his agents, Bud Martin, said he did not know what kind of pills Daly was taking.

``It was nothing special, just something that his body didn't agree with,'' Martin said. ``John is OK. We'll keep an eye on it.''

Sherry Daly said he had shown allergic symptoms before, but the latest reaction -- which included numbness in one arm -- prompted him to go to the doctor.

Daly, who won the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 British Open at St. Andrews, is enjoying a remarkable comeback. He went from No. 507 to 41st in the world rankings over the past 1 1/2 years.
