i was just "chatting" with him in Twitter. he just landed in Spain and is playing 4 tourney's this month, then back to the US for the St. Jude.

before he left, he said he was going to miss having a Blizzard, which he treats himself to one once a week. now that he's in Europe, no Blizzards there so i said i'm going for one. he responded:

"PGA_JohnDaly@NorthVanMike Blizzard Nite is Wed Bub --have one for me"

he had lapband surgery, which if you may not know is where they "clamp" off part of your stomach.more than 50 lbs shed now.

Still don't want to see him w/o shirt & shoes but that after pic is looking a lot better. Would be great to see his game and life come together.

That pic of JD and Boom Boom reminds me of an episode where they competed against each other in "Shell's Wonderful World of Golf." Both of them, aside from the obvious (crazy distance) can really handle their scoring irons. My favorite part of the telecast was watching both of them, on the fourth or fifth hole, nail seven irons within a couple of feet of the hole, back to back. Reminded me a little of that Rolex commercial between Sergio and Easy E.

I think John Daly is great for the game of golf whether you like it or not. I hope he comes back and plays great. He obviously is taking this very seriously and will not waste another chance at the tour, I hope.

All you be can sure of about John Daly:
1 - He won't make any cuts
2 - He'll hit the bottle / gambling
3 - His 'fans' are still as sad as he is

All you be can sure of about John Daly:

What makes he and his fans sad? Is it the fact that they are not perfect like you apparently? I did not know we are in the presence of God, the almighty. If you are going to say crap about someone, make sure that you don't hang yourself out to dry by saying someone is sad because they have made mistakes in their life. People like you piss me off because you don't give anyone another chance. I'll be sure to bow to you everytime you post because of how awesome and perfect you are.

BYE - Neudi.

I love Daly but what I want to know is what's going on with the boozing. Until he gets that under control, I don't care how much weight he loses, it won't make a difference.

I'm rooting hard for him. I still think he could compete if he got off the sauce.

How many chances has Daly been given?

No more clues.

I'm not a "fan" of John Daly, but I do have sympathy for him, even if most of his troubles are self-inflicted.

I hope he does well and finishes out his career with a couple more wins.

typical brit.

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

Or even 'Typical Redneck Yank'. But who am I to point the finger or use those sterotypes?

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

I liked the guy at one point, but he ran out of second chances with me.

    • I read the thread title incorrectly. ”Why would I want to start annoying my golf partners?” Gerund vs. present participle or something. I must be having a bad day, ‘cause I clicked anyway. 
    • Been golfing so bad lately I almost did not check but this week was able to mark off #5 & #7 with Pars (Doing Par Challenge)
    • Yeah, I use the Watch all the time for shot detection and shot location. I’m not sure why they put out the notification now—it’s been out for a couple months IIRC.  I’m using AW series 5, and it works fine even though they say it’s optimized for series 6 and SE.  From the FB user Arccos group, it sounds like the folks who have most problems are using series 3 or maybe 4.  Some folks are saying the battery doesn’t last. The app tells me it will last 5 hours, and I finish a round with about 35% left. Couple of things to consider here: 1. Battery health of the watch. Mine is at 93%, so as it drops lower, I expect it won’t last as long. 2. What other things are you having the Watch do? I turned off the Arccos to Health setting, because that will use more battery. If it’s doing other things as well, that will also use up the battery more quickly. 3. I put my iPhone in Low Power Mode when arriving at the course.  Among other things, this turns off background updates; I think this might also apply to the Watch function. 4. Some folks have said to put it in Airplane mode or theater mode. I haven’t tried that, but haven’t needed to. One improvement in the Watch app is that it now lets you record hole location on the green. Usually pretty close, but I almost always check my first putt and the hole locations on my iPhone as I head to the next tee. 
    • Day 34 (30 Jul 21) - Played 18 today.  Worked on clubbing up on the approaches with a 3/4 swing.  It has helped with getting the ball onto / near the green.  Had some great shots into the greens and even when not on the green, being confident to bump and run with an 8i or pitch with the 54wedge.    
    • Back to the "regular" course today - rough greens and all.  Shot 94 (45 /49).   Played the back nine first with the first three holes (all par 4's) being double bogies.   I knew this was going to be an interesting day for sure.  Good thing - no triples today.  Too many doubles though with a total of six and only one par.  These greens are tough to play as they are either real sparse on good grass or the grass is like putting on cut pile (you have to really stroke through the ball to get the roll).  It calls for one to pin hunt to keep the putter distances as short as possible.
