John Daly, Fred Couples on mend as PGA Tour Champions heads to Baltimore

That the PGA Tour Champions has a week off after the U.S. Senior Open could turn out to be a boost for the Constellation Senior Players Championship, scheduled to start next Thursday at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills.

It could give Fred Couples and John Daly, arguably the biggest draws on the PGA Tour Champions, time to get treatment for the injuries that have kept them off the course at various times this year. Both are currently committed to play, according to the list that became official Monday.

While Couples returned after missing more than a month with recurring back problems to win the American Family Insurance Championship, the 57-year-old former Masters champion had a flareup during the Senior Open at Salem (Mass.) Country Club, where he finished tied for fourth.

Daly, 51, never made it to the Senior Open, withdrawing a couple of days before the start with a shoulder injury that he first hurt last year. After joining the PGA Tour Champions this year, Daly broke through with his first victory at the Insperity Invitational in May.
