SILVIS, ILL. (AP) - One drive into thick grass ended John Daly’s hopes of making the cut for the first time at the John Deere Classic.

Daly needed seven shots, each advancing his ball only a few feet, and a drop to get out of the rough right of the No. 4 fairway and ended up with a 13 on the par-4 hole. He had stepped to the tee at 2-under for the tournament, which he played for the seventh time.

It wasn’t Daly’s worst hole on tour. He had an 18 on No. 6 at the 1998 Bay Hill Invitational, when he hit into the water six times.

Daly, who finished his round at 10-over 81, said he hit a terrible shot into the worst spot on the TPC Deere Run course and deserved what he got.
