John Daly is suing organizers of the Honda Classic, according to a report by Reuters, claiming he injured himself while trying to stop his backswing while a fan was trying to take his picture during the event in 2007.
Daly filed a complaint in a Florida court on Wednesday seeking $15,000 in damages, the Reuters report says. He alleges that he aggravated an old injury as the woman took a flash picture of him.
Under the rules of entry for the tournament, spectators are prevented from taking cameras on to the course.
Daly ultimately withdrew from that event four years ago and says that security was negligent because they allowed the woman on the course with a camera and they failed to remove her after he told them she had a camera.
