John Daly has returned to the British Open as one of the champions of the event who was under 60 years of age on July 20, 2014 which is an exemption (actually the first exemption) for getting into the tournament.

Daly played a practice round with his caddie and girlfriend Anna Cladakis and will try to improve on his T81 performance from two seasons ago (he didn't play last year).

He's actually made the cut in three of the last four Opens he's played though he missed the cut at Hoylake back in 2006.
