Every Golfer Should Have A Little John Daly In Them

Within the last week we’ve learned that Tiger Woods has a woman in every country, and troubled basketball teams drink during half time.  I think everyone was shocked when they heard what Tiger has been up to for quite awhile.  It always seems like the people you least expect to get into trouble do.  Hopefully when this thing blows over Tiger will get back to playing great golf and not have any long term concentration problems.

One person that is accustomed to controversy and being in the public eye would have to be John Daly.  Daly doesn’t fit the traditional golfer mold.  In fact its not uncommon to find him playing a round or two without wearing a shirt or a pair of shoes.  He has had to deal with gambling, alcoholism, marriage, and weight problems.  Don’t forget about getting booted from a handful of tournaments for life.  He is a true party guy.  He usually doesn’t fly and instead takes his recreational vehicle to the tournaments he can play in and/or makes the cut.  Despite all of the problems he as had, collectors still purchase his cards.  Autographs will run around $30.00, and in some crazy circumstances almost all the way up to $100.00.

Golfers in particular seem to watch their image the most.  Maybe its because they get paid when they win a tournament, but that still doesn’t count for all of the endorsements.  I think every golfer should have a little John Daly in them.  So many seem to be so perfect when in reality they aren’t, just like everyone.  When they slip up or something goes wrong they don’t know how to react.  Its almost like that straight “A” student who gets their first “B” and goes nuts.  People need to fail in order to learn how to cope with the bad.  John Daly has had to cope with a lot of heat from the public, but he knows how to brush it off.  If it were Daly who crashed his car and had a woman chasing after him with a golf club last Friday, he would have invited you over for some BBQ and told you all about it 🙂
