Mississippi: Two-time major winner John Daly was out of hospital on Sunday, a day after collapsing at a local golf event in Mississippi, his agent said.
Daly, 49, collapsed on the 18th tee at Deerfield Golf Club on Saturday and was taken by ambulance to hospital, where he was treated and released, his agent Bud Martin said in a statement.
"Daly has fought a lingering rib injury since 2007 which recently has been causing severe pain and has affected his breathing," Martin said. "He has been discharged from the hospital."
Will Dottley, the professional who was paired with Daly on Saturday, told the Golf Channel that he and Daly were walking off the 18th tee when Daly collapsed.
Dottley said a nurse in the gallery administered cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.
Dottley said Daly had battled a problem with one hand in the round, but despite hot, humid conditions had shown no other signs of distress earlier in the round.
He said he was surprised to see Daly back at the club on Sunday, where the big-hitting American was planning to make his afternoon tee time.
