-10 with a 63 today. If he gets a big payday this weekend it would push him well into the top 125.

Yup ... be good to see Daly earn his way back in, rather than rely on exemptions.

BTW, he get's a number of exemptions on the Euro tour as well and always draws a gallery.

I might be wrong, but I think he might actually have a good chance to regain some status on the Euro Tour as well as he currently ranks #82 on the Race to Dubai list.

I think the Euro Tour gives major winners 10 years of category 1 status so Daly likely had full status there until 2006 (assuming he met any requirements to maintain that status).

Could be ... I watched a lot of Euro tour when I lived in the Emirates up untl 2009, and I remember distinctly being surprised how many events he played, that he was on sponsor's exemptions, and that he always had a significant following.

Don't recall him playing particularly well though.

I don't like setting myself up for another disappointment but I hope he keeps it up. He's entertaining to watch up close and personal, that's for sure. I'd like to see him at Torrey Pines next year.

Daly's comments after the meltdown (good of him to give the interview.....) seemed a bit confused.  'Every time I hit a good shot it had a bad outcome', or words to that effect - what does that mean exactly?  There is something about his thought process that doesn't quite add up sometimes.  Maybe it's just the way he expresses himself that doesn't always work for me.   He's still fighting at any rate - more power to him.

He did say that he was in a state of shock after the first few holes and never recovered - nothing worked for him.   That's something I can identify with, e.g. my round at Poppy Hills a few weeks ago - I'll call it my "Daly" round from now on.   As in, "I'll stick with the 3W the first few holes tomorrow to avoid a Daly".

I retract that last remark unreservedly ........

A more accurate Daly quote, sounding a bit perplexed:  "It was like that all day.  If I hit a good shot, it turned out bad."

That would be because you hit too many bad shots John, way too many.   Was this his way of saying that he did hit a few good shots at least.

He joked about how hard it would be for him to get amateur status playing like this.  Poor John.

I think Daly was TRYING to say something along the lines that he was hitting the ball well(ballstriking, that kind of thing) but the outcomes were just never of good fortune.

Sometimes JD seems to display a 'self-destructive' mode. The smokes, the drinks, the wives, the continual shots into the same pond, the lousy scores when just on the cusp of betterment perhaps indicate deep psychological troubles.  Demons lurk in each of us.  Best wishes John.

Sounds like the misguided tool fool who was eliminated in this season's first episode of Big Break

Are you rooting for him?

Do you think he will make it?

I'm rooting for him, but with caution.  I want to see John succeed at getting back on tour on a regular basis, but I hope he's also getting his life in order now and is happy with his life, which I believe is far more important than golf.  Today as far as golf is concerned, he took a huge step backwards. But tomorrow is a new day and hopefully he bounces back with a really low round.

    • After the All Star stuff tonight there was an hour long documentary (or Masterson application video, probably) on the amount of damage done to Connor McDavids knee in the final game of last season.  I'm not sure how you'd watch it in the States since it isn't on YouTube yet, but wow, just wow.    The Oilers picked up the rumored four million dollar tab for his rehab, and even still it's hard to believe he skated on opening day, let alone the preseason.   I already had a lot of respect for the guy, but after watching this it's shot through the roof now.
    • Day 16, January 24 2020.  Putting over the aluminum yardstick this evening after work.  Longest streak:  7 in a row, all 36" (at speed to go at least twice that far).
    • Got my first today! It was a pretty easy hole to birdie, but good to start it off right. 
    • I understand that.  But, if I’m striking the ball well one day, I tend to be striking the ball well for a time.  I’ll always take good ball striking over dumb luck, whether good or bad...
    • My golf season is starting in just under three weeks! What we’ll do is practice for a few weeks before our first match on March 2. Anytime we play, I’ll post about it here and on “What’d You Shoot Today?”. Also, if I have any crazy stories from practice, I’ll post those here as well. We do a lot of fun things at practice, from going out and playing a few holes to competitions on the practice green. Our favorite wager: pushups. I’ve got a few crazy stories from last year, so I can put those here too if you want! Definitely looking forward to the season. Just some info from last season: •My scoring average last season was something in the neighborhood of 48.5, with a low score of 45. Hoping to bring that average down to 45 this season. •We made it to regionals as a team last year as one of the top three teams in our conference. At regionals, we played okay, but came up well short, placing ninth out of 12. Top two teams go to state level, and top twelve individuals go to states as well, which leads me to my third point: •We had two of our team members (neither of which were me) go to states. And the final point: •I made a 10 on my last hole of the season. The last hole of regionals, with my family and just about the whole team watching. If you want to know the hole, look up Keith Hills Golf Club, Orange Course #9. Drive to the center of the fairway, then knocked one in the hazard. Dropped, then into the bunker. Took four to get out and onto the green, and then I two-putted. So, there you go. Looking forward to posting my performance this season!
