John Daly's hand on the mend

John Daly's broken right hand remains somewhat of a mystery, but not the outlook.

Daly pulled out of the Bard Capital two weeks ago in Las Vegas, and he also was forced to withdraw from the Target World Challenge, the richest event in the silly season.

His agent, Bud Martin at SFX Sports, has been in Australia the last 10 days and is still trying to figure out what happened. But he spoke to Daly, and said the prognosis is good.

"John said it was a freak accident," Martin said. "He should be able to putt and chip in a few days, and he expects a full recovery. All the strength will come back, and there is nothing that will jeopardize anything in 2006."

Daly, one of the few Americans who travels abroad, will start next year on the European tour at a new tournament in Abu Dhabi, which is Jan. 19-22. Martin said he did not know if Daly would return the following week at the Buick Invitational, where he won in a playoff two years ago.
