That's possible but who watches (or care about) Champions Tour?   I'd rather watch College Championship, Euro Tour, LPGA, than the Champions. 

I watch it more than I use to. I will turn 50 next year, so I find it quite interesting at times.

I loved John Daly in his heyday and, for a long time, hoped he would return to form.  It just never materialized.  I hope he has a good run on the champion's tour.  Personally, I like the guy but there's been nothing worth paying attention to for a long time.  

If JD were to start tearing up the Champion's Tour, I'd be watching.  I'm not holding my breath, though.

I'm sure he's accepted the fact that his heyday window closed long ago and is hoping to earn the right to shed the "side-show has-been" stigma and be considered a legitimate tour pro again. I think he (and his fans) would be satisfied with some degree of respectable showings from event to event.  If he can hold his $hit together and find some consistency, he'll land a sponsor or two that's not Chico's Bail Bonds and make a nice living.  I honestly feel bad for the guy and want to see him find a groove again.

I heard someone compare JD to Babe Ruth.  And there seems to be some truth to it.  I mean, both have an extraordinary amount of native talent. And both pack an extraordinary amount of alcohol fueled fun into each day.  John Daly would be in my dream foursome.  Can you imagine anyone who would be more fun to play a round with?  :-D

I used to think that, too . .until I saw Being John Daly.  I still like the guy and want to see him do well . .but he's out of my dream foursome.

Ha - Kevin seems like a good guy.  My wife is from Central Georgia and he reminds me of some of her friends, personality-wise . .not golf-ability-wise, of course. 

You know who I think would be really fun to play a round with? Tim Herron.

Kinda makes you wonder just what the real difference is between them, doesn't it?

Besides the fact that Tiger has had a much more successful career and hasn't been associated with alcohol and spousal abuse, I'm curious what makes you like Daly and not Tiger?

Other than one is arguably the greatest golfer of all time and the other is John Daly?  79 pga tour wins to 5.  I mean, I don't even see how they are similar.

I admire the what you see is what you get about Daly. Eldrick is Phony as hail.

Fair answer I don't agree but it explains it, thanks. :beer:

I do like to hear Tiger let the occasional F bombs fly. He gets my respect for being real on how he feels about a bad shot:-)

I would probably feel the opposite.  With Tiger, what you see is what you get (or don't get).  He doesn't like talking to the press, he wants to be left alone.  That's who he is.  Does he "pretend" to be a great family man when he isn't?  I don't know . .I'm sure he'd rather nobody ask. 

John Daly had surgery to lose weight, bragged about what a great thing he did and how he was a changed guy . and then gained all the weight back.  John Daly surrounds himself with people that tell him constantly how great he is . .what an awesome guitar player he is (I'm pulling this from his Golf Channel show), etc. 

I am not against JD . .I totally hope to see him return to form on the Champions Tour and if he goes on a tear, I'll be watching. 

And I don't consider myself a super Tiger Fan Boy, either . . I think he's an awesome golfer.  I accept that he's probably a jerk.  But I don't think he's fake, certainly not more fake than JD.

    • Best part about 12 holes is you get to hit the local watering hole after your round and respond to those nosy patrons that you shot a 68.  No need to tell them you were 20 over par... 😊
    • Spent time this past weekend doing my annual club/bag cleaning. I wipe down my clubs after every shot. During my golf year, about every couple of months they get get a more thorough cleaning. All this cleaning helps with longevity.  This weekend's work involved cleaning grips, and buffing the the club heads. I use dish detergent, and a light scratch pad on the grips, which helps to regain some of the tackiness to them. Gets the accumulated oil, and grime off of them.  I buff the heads to regain the lost luster. Just making them shiny again. I put my groove cleaner to good work. I pay close attention to the soles, to see how perpendicular the scratch lines are to the club face. This gives me a little info on my impact position.  Cleaning my bag is an adventure in itself. Old, forgotten snack bars that made their way to bottom of the bag. That, and lost change, and forgotten trash. I found my favorite divot tool that I thought I lost at Bandon Dunes a few months ago.  Everything gets taken out, and cleaned. Trash gets thrown away. The compartments get vacuumed. The zippers get some very light (Vaseline) lube. I check all the seams, and connecting points for stitching repairs as needed. Strap connections get a thorough look see. Electronic stuff gets new batteries.  I also clean, and repair the 5 head covers I use. They tend to get a little dirty. I use puppet heads on my metal woods. The "Big Dog" (St.Bernard) cover required a little stitching.  Good thing my wife tought me how to stitch with out poking my fingers too many times. Proper tools makes this an easy chore.   The last thing I do is give the outside of the bag a good wipe down, with a light coating of Amor All. Then I set it out in the sun to dry off, followed by another wipe down.   Once the cleaning is all done, I do the restocking of clubs, tees, balls, divot tools,  ball marker coins, rags, shoes, gps, lazer, extra batteries,  blank score cards, and anything else I think I might need. One of the larger compartments stays empty for that spur of the moment stuff, that might require an ice block. Like others, I always seem to miss that "NO OUTSIDE COOLERS, FOOD, OR BEVERSGES ALLOWED" signage.    As I said previously. Clean tools, properly maintained, last longer. I'd also hate to think I lost a stroke or two, due to a slippery grip, or dirty club head. 
    • 1. Inconsistent pre shot routines 2. Chatting too much 3. Playing to quickly
    • I carry mainly so don’t want too much extra weight.  1 13xclubs 2 6xballs 3 2xgloves 4 Bag of tees 5 Pencil 6 Sharpie marker 7 Pitchmark repair tool and ball marker 8 Towel 9 Rules book 10 Spare card of the course 11 Waterproof jacket ( if the W forecast is really bad) 12 Umbrella (as above) 13 Drink 14 Snack        
    • Let it all out, folks. 1. Having made an approach shot that came to rest off the green, I do what most of us do. I park the cart, grab the putter and maybe a couple of clubs for the most likely next shot.  The problem is that when I guess wrong, I rarely then go back to the cart.  I will make do with what I brought. 2. At address, I often simply forget to go through the proper swing thoughts that I know I have to keep in mind.  The consequences are predictably awful. 3. Knowing full well that alcohol spoils my round, I can not turn down a beer or two.  And my friends love to bring them.  I even buy them at times. I am sure there are more.  What are yours?
