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!!

    • I'm getting a little leery of these pros where it looks like they downed three bottles of 5 hour energy before the record button is tapped.
    • I didn’t watch the video, but the thumbnail screenshot has him in position to hit a big block with that right elbow stuck behind him.
    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.    
    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉
