One could easily say 'Typical Yank' when describing the 'Fan-of-Daly'.

You're a nobody that apparently likes to judge people rooting for JD when you don't even know them.

THAT is what's sad. Good day!!

Should have known he didn't lose the weight via will power.

The guy who won 2 majors can't buy a golf game.. I can't buy one either.. So you're saying there's still hope. SWEET

The guys a car-crash: interesting story but for all the wrong reasons as far as I'm concerned. If that's what it takes to be entertaining I'd rather be dull quite honestly.
Trouble with people like Daly is that they not only destroy their own lives, they also cause a load of chaos for everyone around them as well.
He's had has had numerous opportunities to accept help from people, and like most self destructive people he just hurls them back.
When you have read the same sort of article a dozen times then its hard to actually believe it will work out this time, maybe I'm wrong but I dont think its time to heap praise on him just yet.

But, there's two sides to each coin and, at the end of the day, if he's got a good woman (with equally good intentions) and a coach who are strong and do actually care about him, then he might just turn things around.

Also for the record I would imagine anyone from a priviliged background would actually get a great deal less sympathy than Daly does.

living in arkansas, i've heard at least a dozen different stories about people bumping into daly on various courses around here, and all of the stories are always the same - in short, a really nice guy and fun to be around. i'm not really pro-daly nor am i anti-daly. i'd root for him if he got his crap together, but i don't anticipate that ever happening. he's pretty much doomed to "hey, it's john daly!" and hanging around mid-level courses and milking whatever money he can out of merchandise, autographs, hooters appearances, etc.

Should have known he didn't lose the weight via will power. Too bad he can't buy a golf game.

Well might want to give him a 3rd chance, looks like he has made some serious steps to get his health back on track, plus he has a ton of natural talent...as Tiger has said.

I have seen him live when he was in poor health at the PODS Championship last year, still had incredible feel from 100 yards and in, his wedges must have the center of the clubface worn out after 3 rounds. edit...just watched replay...swing looks smoother, looks like he is enjoying himself on the course...playing smart (some hybrids off the tee). Mark my words, he wins a tournament in the next 6 months.

So you dont think it takes will power to go threw a dangerous surgery?

Short term guts maybe. I hope he gets healthy and puts his life back together, but I wouldn't count on it. History does not speak well for him.

I too have seen him in tournament play. And what I remember are the times when he knew he was missing a cut and just threw in the towel. Not caring what he shot at that point. No excuse for that. Hard to have respect for someone who doesn't show any respect to the sponsors or the fans that come out to see him play.

I really like Daly but I would take that bet. He isn't winning anything in the next six months. I hope I'm wrong, but I won't be.

You do know you have to eat healthy and exercise every single day after having this surgery correct? So, if you put 1 and 1 together, eating healthy and exercising, he is losing the weight on his own. The surgery just helps speed up the process. I continue to forget how many people on this forum are perfect and don't deal with real life situations.

I'm sooooo ready to see his beer swilling cigarette smokeing self trod the fairways of Augusta once more.




Keep it up, JD.....the game will welcome you back in a second.

    • Golf is just a difficult game because of the required precision needed to hit strait-isn shots when the downswing is a fraction of a second in duration.  Golf rule are made because they are fair and for the most part simple to understand. This means, there are not 100 different situations for one rule. Which is good. None of your examples are anything to complain about regarding the rules. Honestly, you don't encounter those situations that much to say it make golf excessively hard. 
    • I have encountered much reluctance to play by USGA rules that make the game "too hard". Examples are no automatic two-putts on temporary greens, balls that are lost because they embedded are still lost, bare ground is not GUR, mud is not temporary water, penalty relief area may be on a cart path, no relief from divots, no relief from boundary fence, no line of play relief from immovable obstructions, etc. 
    • Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the read. Playing your own game is important.  Many years ago, there was a woman at my home club who would play from the blue tees, hit her drives about 230, and would shoot in the high 70s/low 80s.  It was fun being paired with her because... well, playing with good players is always fun, but I also enjoyed watching men who couldn't handle being outdriven by her try to hit the ball further, mostly unsuccessfully.  I knew I couldn't compete with her for distance (and I don't think I was ever competing against her anyway), but that really helped.  As for the safe shot vs correct shot, I think the driver is the right club a lot more often than many think it is.  Fairways hit are overrated in most golfers' minds and distance from the tee is underrated as a contributor to scoring.  
    • No problem, thx for letting me know.
