ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- One day after being fired by his swing coach, John Daly missed his pro-am tee time today at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and was disqualified from the tournament.

And that wound up knocking two other players out of the tournament.

Ryuji Imada and Nick O'Hern thought they were alternates for the afternoon session of the pro-am and neither was at Bay Hill when Daly missed his time, so they also were disqualified from playing this week.

Imada was among those who tied for second last week at the PODS Championship, and at Number 68 in the world, he is trying to crack the top 50 to qualify for the Masters.

Daly could not be located for comment.

His disqualification comes one day after Butch Harmon said he was done working with Daly because the two-time major champion appeared more interested in drinking than working on his game.
