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.

Big Daly fan here. Looking forward to watching him on the Champions tour.

Wait, you're a big Daly fan but you hate Tiger?

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.

    • The only problem I found on bending clubs are the ones that have little plastic/metal inserts on the back side of the clubs.  Because of these inserts, some local proshops, and/or club builders won't touch them for fear of breaking/cracking/popping those inserts. The owner, in need of an adjustment, may be required to send their clubs back to manufacturer. 
    • Day 478 It arrived today. What arrived was my new driver: a Ping 410 Plus with Alta CB Red Soft Regular Shaft. As I am still getting used to the new toy, I started with all the adjustable parts set to the most neutral settings.  Soon I adjusted to help with a slice. All after that change were straight where I was aiming.  I seemed to have picked up 10 MPH in terms of ball speed.  I need to work now on the results not being so high. I intended to hit only 20-25 balls.  I ended up hitting 45 as this club made driving fun.  It was easy to hit towards  various target greens.  What I need to adjust after a few more practice section I the launch angle to lower the fact that wit my older drive I tend to hit high spin. I rarely, if ever, fall in love with a club so quickly, but even with days of getting used to it ahead, as I said in my review on the Ping web site, it was love at first whack.
    • Was wondering if anyone has played here. Playing the ledgends course. 
    • Totally agree with keeping them standard length to start with. Can always grip down when they are long, but can't go the opposite way. Bending Pings is difficult at best and don't assume you will be able to have it done easily. May have to send back to Ping if you want them bent after the fact but they can do it.
    • Day 28 What a GREAT day!  This is why everyone should have a golf coach! So, about 5 weeks ago I was playing great. Then suddenly I completely lost it. Then I got hurt (non-golf related, but screwed up my game). When I came back from my injury I was pretty close to hopeless.  I got with my golf coach and he and I worked through what all had changed in my swing. It turns out I had made a minor adjustment without realizing it. Then I made an adjustment to counter act that adjustment, then another and another and pretty soon my swing was nothing like what my swing used to be like.  My coach brought up the video of my swing when it was good. We compared it to where I found myself after … I'll call it my melt down. Anyway, my coach was able to quickly get me back where I was before. Suddenly I was striping the ball down the middle again. Yay!  Anyhow, back to today's practice. I hit trajectory drills with the driver. I'd hit a high fade, then hit an 8-iron shot. Next I'd hit a low draw, then hit a hybrid. After that I'd hit a high trajectory drive, then hit a 4-irion. Basically I'd work through the 9 shots with the driver: high, medium and low, Draw, straight and fade combinations. But after each driver shot, I'd hit a different club from my bag, picking the club pretty much at random. I didn't want to hit any club more than one time in a row.  In the end I hit the ball so well on the range I had to run out and play 9 holes. My game has returned, I went 3 over for 9. I hit the ball so much better than I'd been hitting it recently. It felt great.  That's the reason everyone should have a golf coach.
