John Daly will be playing in the Zurich Classic this week after receiving a very late invitation from the organisers.

Daly has Boo Weekley, who had to withdraw for medical reason, to thank for his spot. Because Weekley himself was a sponsor’s exemption, officials decided to offer the place to Daly instead of one of the players on the alternate list.

It is just the third tournament Daly will have played on the PGA Tour this year, he has previously finished 51st in the Transitions Championship and tied for 52nd two weeks ago in the RBC Heritage so far in America in 2012.

The former Major champion has not held a full PGA Tour card in six years and has spent much of his time recently playing sponsors invites on the European Tour.

Masters champion Bubba Watson is also in the field, defending the title he won last year. South African legends Ernie Els and Retief Goosen are also there to make things interesting for us.
