JD is -7 thru 17 today and is t9 with Watney, Garrigus and a few others at -9, so he has put himself into position to get a nice check. Not sure what his sponsor invites look like for the rest of the year, but top 10 are automatically eligible for next week.

I also believe in 2nd chances, so if he's really got his act together this time I'd like to see him beat the odds and be successful on the tour.
I do believe that some players have more talent than others and some work harder, but that is really the nature of sports in general. Nobody would be "kicked off the tour to make room for" him. Yes, if he plays well and earns a top 125 position, that MIGHT mean someone else has lower status, but not necessarily. First off, #126 (through 150) have conditional status which gets them into a number of tournaments AND they get to go to Q School Finals with a chance to earn back a full card. Also, the guy who finishes #126 could actually have higher full status than Daly (assuming he is top 125) a number of different ways including having won a major/Players within the last 5 years, a regular event in 2011, etc.
