John Daly received a late invitation to play the Zurich Classic this week. Boo Weekley had to withdraw Tuesday because of medical reasons. Because he was a sponsor's exemption, the tournament offered the exemption to Daly. It will be only the third PGA Tour event this year for Daly, a two-time major champion who has not had his full tour card in six years. Daly has been playing on the European Tour.

Masters champion Bubba Watson is the defending champion in New Orleans.
