What's Next John Daly - Beer Commercials?



John Daly has been one of those interesting characters of the PGA. Thrown out of the mix about two years ago, he was given a chance to play again this week with a special exemption. Curiously, he missed his time at the Arnold Palmer Invitational – a time he was fortunate to even have a chance with. Since then, he has been disqualified from the event and will likely not be given this sort of opportunity again in the near future. In addition, Butch Harmon ditched him this week.

It really is a sad state considering his behavior that offended the golf world at the PODS Championship earlier this month. Apparently, he spent a considerable amount of time drinking at one of the sponsor’s tents. His choice of caddy, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden, also raised some eyebrows. Equally interesting is the fact that Chucky would agree to carry someone else’s golf clubs around the course.

Many in the golf world are worried about Daly and wish to offer him help. The drinking is nothing new and he’s a smoker that doesn’t exactly take care of his overall health. At one point, he was on top of the world with his long drives and outside-of-the-mold image. Hopefully he can pull it together – bring back the big-hitting, mullet-sporting, likable guy!

This place is great!

I feel bad for the guy though, he is who he is, and he just happens to be the anti-PGA guy.

He brought it on himself, but he had so much potential.

Apryl...Thanks for the comment about a "related story" on my blog.

I like John Daly, & hope that he can kick his demons out before it's too late.

It's like he could still win the Fed-Ex cup if he got back in shape, but he's going to have to "pee in the cup" first".
