No kidding. John Daly has become more of a sad story as of lately. I sure hope he turns a corner during this suspension...he has continued to go downhill physically and behaviorally. Quite a far cry from what the PGA strives to be.  Sad

So sad. John Daly was probably one of the most talented players to ever play the game yet instead of managing himself correctly and focusing on winning he has become a fat waste of humanity. This guy could have 6 or more majors and countless other wins but he chose to waste his talent. Nothing this guy does suprises me. I know the guy who worked the locker room at the 2002 Open loved Daly because he was one of the best tippers but that money went right out the window this year. If he even was exempt to play which I am not sure.

As is two trips to rehab to (temporarily) dry out and published reports of his massive losses due to compulsive gambling. No wonder the guy has been married four time  sarcastic

I think it's awesome. He brings adventure and a bit of insanity to a very strict and pompous sport. Who doesn't like a guy that likes to down a few scotches, lose a hundred grand on a poker hand and have a cig before and during a nice round of golf.

He's a guy we all know and its great that someone like that can be on a tour. If he's good enough to play with the best and he's not completely out of control let him play.

So what if he hits a ball off a tin can? Is it really that big of a deal when it would make great ratings? I love watching him stroll down the fairway with a cigarette in hand and doing well.

Where do you get your information?

You just described about half the PGA tour. In fact Mickelson has lost much more than that in Vegas on a good night. The guy plays 5000 a hand blackjack. The things you described above are not why Daly got the boot for 6 months.

I liked when he played shirtless, that was a sight. Again this is just something that has been culminating for a long time.

To me Daly has some very serious mental health problems, made worse by his excessive drinking. He is in a line of making money where one is in great visability, relies a lot on sponsors spending money, so a certain decorum is required.

I don't think the PGA had any real choice but to suspend him from the tour for the good of it. Let us not forget that the PGA tour is going to be facing substantual cuts in sponsors and their money with the financial crises we are facing now and in the forseeable future. I bet even Tiger will see a cut in his income. Continuing to let beheavior such as Daly's continue is just not good business and it also keeps off someone of good behavior who is bearly keeping on the tour.

"he appeared intoxicated outside a Hooters restaurant, and Daly was taken to jail to sleep it off"

That says it all.



Maggs swings, it's a drive deep to left! The Tigers are going to the World Series!!!

I hate when I tell someone my name and they say to me, in jest of course, "oh, you're the golfer?" I hate to be connected with him in anyway. Where I live, in Arkansas, he's has been somewhat of a hero, because he's from this area.

You can guess from this what my name is, I guess.
