John Daly has revealed he has undergone surgery after being diagnosed with bladder cancer.
The 54-year-old two-time major winner told Golf Channel the cancer was discovered during an appointment related to kidney stones.
Daly has been told by his doctor there is an 85 per cent chance of the cancer returning.

“[The doctor said] it doesn’t look like any stones are in there. But unfortunately, you have bladder cancer,” the American said.
“After I did the CT I was fixing to sip on my Diet Coke I got from McDonald’s and he said, ‘Don’t drink anything. We have to get you back in here and get this cancer out of you.'”
Daly underwent surgery to remove the cancer but is likely to need a further operation if the cancer returns.
“Luckily for me they caught it early, but bladder cancer is something that I don’t know all the details,” he said.
