Ok, here are my first questions for 2018:

Q: Should John Daly be in the golf hall of fame? If so, why? If not, why not?

Q: Who, in your opinion, was a more prolific long-ball hitter, Daly, Couples, or Davis Love III (or someone else I'm not thinking of. e.g., Jack, Tiger, Snead, etc.). Of course, this assumes equipment restricted all golfers to the era they played in.

I'm hoping this will produce better responses than the gang-bang I took over single-length clubs :-) (I knew not of what I spoke). Peace.

 

 

 So far as I know, in whatever sport you’re talking about, entrance into the Hall of Fame is based on the statistical record, not on personality traits. 

Should there be an integrity button that trumps statistics? I don’t think so. But who an individual deems a “hero” to them, is up to them.

I think everyone makes good arguments for Daly not being in, because of his sparse wins, but I personally think it's a crime if he doesn't get in. He resurrected golf popularity in the pre-Tiger era, did the impossible at the '91 PGA,  and won at St. Andrews.
I understand your arguments against him, I just think his performance is Hall-worthy. A train-wreck in life, yes, but a phenomenal golfer.

No....John Daly does not warrant HOF.

Some one else....neither of the ones offered as choices

I voted yes.  His major wins and opening up the game to more freewheeling players had a positive impact. 

I think DL3 was the most prolific long ball hitter.
