New Delhi - American John Daly has withdrawn from the $2.4 million Avantha Masters golf tournament after an elbow injury sustained during the first round.

Daly had said after his first round of 7-over 79 on Thursday that he had probably torn ligaments in his right elbow.

The 45-year-old said on Twitter that his "elbow snapped" when he played a shot on the ninth hole.

Daly posted a photo on his Twitter page with his right arm in a cast, saying "no bones are broken, possible torn ligaments according to European Tour Docs--getting home for X-rays!"

Daly is a two-time Major winner with titles at the 1991 PGA championship and the 1995 British Open.
