Two-time PGA major title-holder John Daly has revealed that he has bladder cancer.

The 54-year-old told Golf Channel he had a procedure to remove cancer, but his doctor said there's an 85% chance it would return, and he'd have to undergo surgery again.

On Twitter, the golfer thanked everyone for their support and well wishes.

"Hey All, thank you all so much for all the love, texts, msgs & support thru this!" Daly tweeted. "It's all still shocking for me but know I'll do what I have in me to beat this! My whole life, I've beaten the odds, so it's NOT time to stop now! Ready for 2020 to be fkn over! #gripitandripityall"

In his 33-year career, Daly has won five PGA Tour titles, including the 1991 PGA championship and 1995 Open.
