British Open champion John Daly withdrew from the Canadian Open yesterday, further depleting a field that includes only three of the top 10 money leaders on the PGA tour and 20 of the first 50. Daly, who has had only one week off since winning at St. Andrews in July, called the PGA tour's office in Ponte Vedra, Fla., and left a voice-mail message saying he would not play. He said he would send a letter explaining his reasons, and he has 14 days to clarify his decision. BASEBALL The Dodgers have arranged for an off-duty police officer to escort pitcher Hideo Nomo to his Los Angeles-area home after each game, a newspaper reported.

TULSA, Okla. - John Daly rolled into town late. And because it's hotter than a pizza oven here, he blew off his only chance for a practice round at Southern Hills Country Club on Wednesday in favor of playing the slots in the cool of Cherokee Casino a few miles from here. But yesterday, when it was showtime at the 89th PGA Championship, Daly went out and shot one of the most impressive and improbable 3-under-par 67s of his checkered career, leaving him alone in second after the first round, only 2 shots behind Englishman Graeme Storm.

Years ago, Bobby Jones watched in awe as a young Jack Nicklaus pounded the mystique out of the Augusta National Golf Club. "He plays a game with which I'm not familiar," Jones said of Nicklaus, whose raw power often turned the Masters into one man chip-and-putt show. We can only imagine what Bobby would say if he were around to see John Daly. If Jones had trouble relating to the Golden Bear, he would be positively traumatized by the man they call Long John. Daly is the Paul Bunyan of the pro golf tour, a man whose feats already qualify as legend.

With no golf on his schedule, John Daly said he went to North Carolina last week to have fun with some friends. What followed was a night in jail. According to police in Winston-Salem, N.C., Daly appeared "extremely intoxicated and uncooperative" when he was found outside a Hooters restaurant early Oct. 27. With no other means of transportation, he was taken to the Forsyth County jail for 24 hours to get sober. Daly said it could have been avoided if his friends had realized he tends to sleep with his eyes open when he has been drinking.

The Honda Classic, which concluded here yesterday at the Weston Hills Country Club, did not feel like an ordinary stop on the PGA tour. It felt big- time. The winner was Nick Price, who has been the best golfer in the world for the last 18 months. Craig Parry, a brilliant young Australian player, finished second. Bernhard Langer, Curtis Strange and Davis Love 3d were all part of the four-way tie for fourth. But it was the presence of one man in particular that made this tournament sparkle.

As the little golfer squeezed open his eyes at the conclusion of his afternoon nap, he saw his father's distinctive Irish-Indian head hovering somewhere above his own. "You want to watch the John Daly tape?" Kurt J. Gibson Sr. asked his boy. "Yeah," said the little golfer. This was yesterday, in the air-conditioned living room of a tidy rowhouse in South Philadelphia. Little Kurt, as he is known in the only house on South 12th Street with a golf flag hanging from a second-floor pole, is 4 years old and obsessed with golf.

A year and a half ago, who among us hadn't pretty much written off John Daly? He was, after all, seemingly self-destructing right before our eyes. There he was, on TV, each time looking more pitiful than the last, wringing every drop of misery and misfortune from life that he could. It was as if he were destined - or at least determined - to live out a cross between a Shakespearean tragedy and a woe-is-me country-music song. Don't look now, but Big John is back. Back and maybe bigger than ever.

He says that after hitting rock bottom, he has begun the long, hard climb back. He says that after years of self-loathing and guilt, he's finally beginning to like the man he sees in the mirror. He says that after a second trip to alcohol rehabilitation in three years, this time, sobriety is for real and for life. If you don't believe him, well, John Daly isn't surprised. But what the heck is he supposed to do? "There is always doubt about this kind of thing in people's minds, because people [alcoholics]

Predictably, John Daly's first British Open has been a troubled one. Alas, it may also turn out to be his last. Yesterday, the huge-hitting PGA champion shot an 80, 9 over par, leaving him dead last among the 75 players still in the tournament. His scorecard for the day consisted of numbers seemingly chosen at random. There was a 7, two 6's, six 5's, six 4's, a 3 and two 2's. After the shaggy-haired blond had signed that scorecard, he was talking about not returning to these shores.

Almost one year has passed since John Daly shocked the world by winning the PGA Championship, going from an obscure, struggling Arkansas pro to a national hero at age 25. He spent the year as this larger-than-life figure, a big-hitting, free- wheeling guy who loved to mingle with the public. But he also spent it as a convenient target for critics quick to scrutinize golf's latest glamour boy. "It's a lot different than I thought it would be," Daly said yesterday before playing in the Tylenol Kids Classic's Celebrity Skins Game in Horsham.

JOHN DALY has taken a swing at the PGA Tour's drug-testing policy. Daly, on his radio show, "Hit It Hard With John Daly" on Sirius/XM, said the Tour notifies players before they will be tested, given them time to clean up their act. "It's not random; it's a big a joke," Daly said. "This whole drug testing is a joke. " Daly said he expects to be tested before this week's Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Fla. "I know when I'm getting drug tested," he said.

The short but contentious primary season in Washington Township, Gloucester County's most populous, ended Tuesday night with victories for all six organization-backed candidates. Divergent groups of the township's Republican Executive Committee and Democratic Executive Committee had sought their respective party's nomination. The seats of the council's three Republicans are up for grabs on the five-member board in November. On the GOP side, embattled Council President Giancarlo D'Orazio lost in the primary alongside running-mate Robert Maloney.

IT'S NO SECRET that John Daly is a loser. Not as a human being, as some would have you believe. But as a gambler. Daly, appearing on "In Depth With Graham Bensinger" this week, recalled that he had lost between $55 million and $57 million while gambling between 1991-2007. That's not news. Daly wrote about his alcohol and gambling addictions in his 2006 book, "John Daly: My Life In and Out of the Rough. " What is news is that he apparently doesn't regret his behavior.

WASHINGTON TWP. Divergent factions of the Democratic and Republican committees in Washington Township will vie for town council seats in the June primary election. Four groups, two from each party, filed their petitions with the township Monday, underscoring brewing rifts in both parties. The deadline for the June 3 primary follows a lawsuit filed late last week against the township's Democratic Executive Committee, alleging that the group had violated its bylaws, failing to notify committee members of meetings before selecting three candidates: Angela Donato, Sean Longfellow, and Albert Frattali.

YOU'LL PROBABLY find this hard to believe, but sometimes the media makes mistakes. Golfer John Daly recently tweeted that he's, "Not coming out of closet because I haven't been in one. " Daly felt compelled to set the record straight - no pun intended - after a BBC announcer confused "John Daly" with "Tom Daley," the Olympic diver who recently disclosed he was gay. Similarly, Sky News in the UK - while also reporting on Tom Daley - compiled...

JOHN DALY withdrew from the British Open yesterday because he will have surgery on his right elbow this week that will end his PGA Tour season. Daly said he first noticed something wrong with his right elbow at the Byron Nelson Championship in May, and tests revealed a torn tendon. He said doctors told him he could try to play as long as he didn't hit a rock or a tree root. "And that's what happened on the 12th hole Friday at Greenbrier," Daly said. "I was just trying to chip out and there was a root under the ball.

MATT EVERY shot an 8-under-par 62 yesterday for a one-stroke lead over five other players midway through the Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Every needed only 26 putts during his best round of the year and is at 9-under for the tournament on the Old White TPC course. He missed four putts inside 12 feet that could have made his bogey-free second round even more special. "I played really well tee to green, finally made some putts," he said. "I haven't made anything all year and it just finally happened today.
