    They should have a special PGA for disabled people who need a cart.

    A little “mind if we play through?” during his backswing would also help.

    I love John Daly, but no, he shouldn’t be able to use a cart on the PGA tour.

    Walking the course is part of the tournament.

    They should all have to drink a 1/5th on Beam and smoke a pack of reds before they tee off if they want it to be truly an equal footing.

    Daly is a renaissance man.

    Boolio speaks for most of us. and this is what Tiger should have said instead of making it about his own heroism.

    well done, bro. :hat:

    There's a good chance he doesn't even finish the 1st round. He'll toss his clubs in a pond after his 3rd triple bogey.

    Thomas Peters was 8 over through his first 4 holes this morning.
    Sounds like a fucking PARTY!

    Speaking as a non-golfer. Well, an ex-golfer, it would seem that the cart gives that golfer an unfair advantage. I know walking a course not even carrying your bags is not that much exercise but it can be when it's hot or hilly, as many of the pro coursed are. Let him drive the cart with a one stroke penalty for each hole. Or just let them all drive carts. I bet some of them would love to mow down the next fan that yells "It's in the hole!".

    Tiger fought hard against Casey Martin. Never understood why.

    Tiger has said that many times. He said it when Martin was fighting to use a cart.
    Because he’s a golf purist. Walking the course is part of the game, just like swinging a club. Imagine in baseball a guy hits the ball, then hops on a Segway to round the bases because he has bad knees. Victor Martinez might still be playing.

    This is true. Tiger refused to wear knickers after Payne Stewart died.

    The irony is that other things that are performance enhancing haven’t been frowned upon. Clubs and balls have changed the game to the point where courses have to undergo big changes to keep them difficult enough to hold a pro tournament. The one thing I’ve never understood is the caddy. Perhaps that should be the trade off. A player opting to use a cart doesn’t need a caddy, so they shouldn’t have one.
