John Daly can drink a few beers if he wants.

Actually, after lap band surgery, I don't believe you're supposed to drink carbonated beverages.

And you can likely make your point without calling everyone else names.

I see the JD issue has two sides,just like all issues. you have the elitists with their puritan ideals, and you have the commoners with their forgive-and-forget ideals...sorta live and let live. remember, only JD has to pay the price for what he does,which from what I read here is totally legal. his wife dealing drugs could be easily withheld from JD, seeing as he's on the road/spending time on the course/range/endorsement obligations/etc., but even there, he's paid the price for it. as a human being dealing with demons, we should be supportive,regardless of how many times he stumbles. he hasn't killed anyone.. he hasn't stolen money from anyone. all the cash he's "blown" was his to blow, not ours..not the PGAs..not anyones.we can have an opinion as to the wisdom of those actions, but to judge him.... well.... as the Good Book says" let he without sin cast the 1st stone".

from a golfing perspective: I hope he competes well....
from a personal perspective: I pray he overcomes those demons....

...... ties for second....thats about 194 000 dollars (i got on the currency converter)...thats a big payday for JD..im pleased for him.

On to Ireland now for the next tournament and then Wentworth for the BMW Championship. He's better off staying in Europe for the year to 'dry out' and chill. The more cuts he makes and tv coverage he gets the more likely he is to get a new equipment deal...he will be living off prize money for a while as he has no sponsors at all (not even Hooters).

I hope he does really well and shows all those doubting Thomases!

On the lap band surgery, you are correct. No beers for John. As for the name calling, I don't even know what a Nimrod is It offends those that do I guess. I meant it harmlessly. I will be more careful in the future to take care of everyones feelings. The rest of this post was sure kind hearted. Really glad to see the washed up, has been, alcoholic shoot a 66 today. Finishing second will surely give him some confidence.

How can you call him a washed-up has-been when he shot 4 rounds under 70 and finished 2nd? He looks like he has a lot of good golf left in him.

edit: Oh wait, you were being facetious. NVM!

I've said more than a few times that he might have more natural golfing talent in his pinkie than Tiger has in his entire body, but Tiger more than makes up for it with work ethic, mindset, determination, etc.

JD does have a ton of natural talent, like everyone on the tour. Forget about the long ball (he might be top 10 now), what has always impressed me is his short game and the loose hands approach to it, I have tried my best to immulate that approach and it has made my game better. I'd much rather watch him hit a 40 yard shot than a 320 drive.

No doubt Tiger is gifted, I think will surpass Jack as the best ever, no doubt his hard work, course management, and putter (his will to win) is something we might not see for another 30 years. Congrats to John playing the last 3 rounds of the last 3 tournaments his best score for the tourney, that has not happened in a long time...if ever. Keep up the hard work JD!!! Great -5 today!!

    • They are a fun group of guys.  The stories they tell are epic.  
    • 19.2a/2 – Stroke-and-Distance Relief Is Allowed Only at Spot of the Last Stroke The option to take stroke-and-distance relief for an unplayable ball applies only to where the last stroke was made; a player is not allowed to go back to the spot of any earlier strokes made before that. If the stroke-and-distance relief option or the back-on-the-line option are not favourable, the only option is to take lateral relief multiple times, taking a penalty each time, until the player can get a ball into a playable location.
    • As do I. It looks nice, but they practically put a big X in the middle of every hole in terms of where to play from. Lawsonia Links had options. You could kick the ball off a mound 70 yards away and have it roll towards the green. @DaveP043 did that on 9 and had a tap-in birdie. Our group had a pretty good discussion about the options on 13, where you can try to take on the slope but risk the ball rolling down and facing a blind uphill 100 yard shot, or laying up to 150 and having a perfect view of the green.

    • I have a rules question that came up during league play on Wednesday. I'm not sure the ruling, and haven't been able to figure it out for sure. We have some differing opinions and so thought I'd post. Player A, a 37 HCP hooks a tee shot left, about 40 feet into tall thick grass. Amazingly, we find his ball, he'd have been better off if it were lost. It's really thick and difficult.  At this point, he could take an unplayable, and go back and hit another shot from the tee, stroke and distance. Or, under a usga model local rule we use could take two penalty strokes and drop it out near or in the fairway. (edit: since the ball is not lost, he can't use the model local rule). But, instead, he takes a few swings at it, whiffing, and then managing to advance it about a foot or two. Eventually, gives up, tosses a club and asks what he can do. Now, it's not a penalty area, so he can't play from where it crossed any boundary, it's just thick grasses. Going back on the line is also not possible because the thick grass extends the entire length of the course. So now that he's taken some swings, what are his options to continue. Stroke and distance no longer apply, at least with respect to going back to the tee box because more strokes have been made at the ball. I see only  1) take a series of unplayables, two club lengths at a time until he is clear of the thick grass. 2) lift the ball using the unplayable rule, place it somewhere playable (but more that two club lengths), and take whatever penalty is due (maybe 2 strokes for playing from the wrong place?). What else?  My groups consensus is that he has no options, and he's gonna be there until dark hacking away at it. (Assume stroke play, because if it were match, he could just concede the hole)
