John Daly’s Battling Bladder Cancer, Says ‘Doesn’t Look Like It May Go Away’

John Daly, who is in South Dakota for the Sanford International event on the PGA Champions Tour, revealed to The Golf Channel that he’s undergone bladder cancer surgery and doctors tell him there’s an 85% chance the cancer will come back, but he’s prepared to fight it and make life changes. Daly, 54, said he had been battling back pain and kidney stones, but once the kidney stones were cleared up the cancer was diagnosed.

“The doctors aren’t saying it’s too late,” Daly said. “Unfortunately, it’s a cancer that keeps coming back. But I’m going to listen to them, and I’m going to try and quit smoking. If it comes back, it comes back. Six months to a year, if it doesn’t go away, I’m going to live my life. I’m gonna have some fun.”

Daly says he’s cut back on his beloved Diet Cokes and is trying to quit smoking.

“It’s probably going to come back, and then another 3 months that you don’t know. You just don’t know. Luckily for me they caught it early, but bladder cancer is something that I don’t know all the details. But it doesn’t look like it may go away. We will just see what happens. Maybe there’s a miracle.”
