John Daly plays on Nationwide Tour for first time since 1991

 Longtime Arkansas resident John Daly returns to the US Nationwide Tour this week for the first time since 1991. He received a sponsor's exemption into the Fort Smith Classic at Hardscrabble Country Club in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
The former Arkansas (University) Razorback played on the Nationwide Tour full time in 1990, its inaugural year, making 14 cuts in 19 starts, finishing second three times and winning the Utah Classic. That fall, he would get his US PGA Tour card through the Qualifying Tournament and go on to earn 1991 Rookie of the Year honours with the highlight being his surprise victory at the US PGA Championship.
Daly has made 439 US PGA Tour starts and won five times, adding another major at the 1995 Open at St Andrews. In 2010, the 44-year-old has made the cut in eight of 11 US Tour events, with his best finish a T24 at the Puerto Rico Open presented by Banco Popular.
