Daly Suffers Allergic Reaction

DARDANELLE, Ark. -- Professional golfer John Daly suffered an allergic reaction to a component in diet pills, his wife said Monday, calling the episode a 'mini-stroke.'
Sherry Daly said her 35-year-old husband did not suffer any lasting effects.
'We had MRIs done, and we did find out what was causing it,' she said. 'He's fine, and we're going to England for a golf tournament.'
She said Daly, winner of the PGA championship in 1991 and the British Open in 1995, had exhibited allergic symptoms previously. She said the latest incident, which included numbness in one arm, prompted him to seek medical attention.
