JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — John Daly collapsed near the end of a round of golf Saturday and was taken by ambulance to a hospital.
The 49-year-old Daly was playing in a small, local tournament at Deerfield Golf Club in Jackson's northern suburbs.
Daly's friend, Billy Allen, who was with Daly at the hospital, said the two-time major champion's vital signs were good but doctors were checking on possible injuries to his ribs and fingers.
