Past winner John Daly withdraws from PGA Championship

Past winner John Daly has withdrawn from the PGA Championship, tournament organizers said Monday, and will be replaced in the field by German Stephan Jaeger.

The larger-than-life Daly, who won the tournament in 1991, has played only a handful of PGA Tour events in the past two years but is nonetheless a perennial fan favorite.

The two-time major winner most recently missed the cut at the Zurich Classic last month.

The PGA Championship kicks off Thursday at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
