Jackson - John Daly is out of the hospital and recovering from what his agent has described as a collapsed lung.

The two-time major champion was taken to Baptist Medical Center on Saturday after he collapsed on the 18th tee during an outing at Deerfield Country Club. A friend at the hospital with Daly says doctors were checking his ribs and some fingers but his vital signs were good.

Daly's agent, Bud Martin, said in an email that the 49-year-old Daly has been coping with a lingering rib injury dating to 2007. The injury recently was causing pain and affected his breathing.

Deerfield club pro Leigh Brannan says Daly was having trouble with the heat and had difficulty breathing before being taken to the hospital.
