Daly back on European Tour after elbow injury

AGADIR, Morocco (AP) -- John Daly has returned to the European Tour for the Hassan II Trophy tournament, confident he's recovered from an injury to his right elbow.

Daly tore tendons in his elbow hitting a submerged tree root at the ninth hole during the final round of the Avantha Masters last month in India.

The 1991 PGA and 1995 British Open winner flew home to seek treatment, which included a cortisone injection.

The 45-year-old Daly will be paired in Morocco with American Rich Beem, winner of the 2002 PGA Championship, and New Zealand's Michael Campbell, who captured the 2005 U.S. Open.

Daly said he'll play the Sicilian Open next week and attend the Masters -- not competing but selling his clothing line and accessories close to Augusta National.
