John Daly has withdrawn from The Open three days after being told he can’t ride in a cart.

The R&A announced Tuesday that Daly, who won The Open at St. Andrews in 1995, has withdrawn because of a medical condition. He was replaced at Royal Portrush by Kevin Streelman.

Daly cited the Americans with Disabilities Act in requesting.

Daly responded quickly on Twitter to express his disappointment in their decision. Due to osteoarthritis that he says could result in knee replacement surgery, Daly previously requested, and was permitted, to use a golf cart at the 2019 PGA Championship at Bethpage Black, where he missed the cut. 

The R&A said it denied his request because it considers walking to be an integral part of the tournament.

The British Open just got a lot less interesting.
