Day 182 (of 186) the question you’re not going to like to reflect on

Day 182 (of 186) the question you’re not going to like to reflect on

John Daly, a golfer who has long been a controversial figure (many demons impacting his talent) requested using a golf cart while participating in a seniors tournament: http://www.espn.com/golf/story/_/id/23908095/john-daly-withdraws-2018-us-senior-open-championship-says-usga-denied-use-cart

He has a long lasting injury that may qualify him to use a golf cart under the ADA (America disabilities act) but he is not liked by many. Scott Verplank is a well liked golfer who also has a health issue. He is allowed to use a golf cart.

Each request is reviewed on a case-by-case base and they won’t speak publicly about private medical conditions.

Here’s the reflection question:
