    John Daly

    It will be interesting today to see if John Daly can keep it together and finish with a good round today or implode like he normally does. After yesterdays 3rd round he is 3 shots back and tied for 5th place. I'm rooting for him to succeed but history has shown that he will likely implode today.

    I too will be cheering for him, but I'm afraid he's going to implode again. I hope not. He's VERY talented, but just cannot keep the mental side together at all.

    Re: John Daly

    If he could have matched yesterdays 67 he would have won. 72 wouldn't qualify as a blow up.

    You forgot to insert "NOT" between those two.

    I would said he more than qualifies at being unique but he's easily the worst golfer to win two majors.

    I heard he took his $140,400 and put it all on the Washington Generals right after he finished yesterday. Oops

    Even if that's true, two major wins qualifies you as very talented.

    Huh? You can't win 2 majors without being VERY talented. He has some of the most natural skills in golf but he is to big of an idiot to ever be more than he has been.

    But like I said winning two majors shows that he has legit talent.

    Haha. That's such a ridiculous statement. First of all, you cut the field dramatically when you are talking about guys who have won 2 majors. It's not like there are a bunch of chops who have won 2 majors. I have never had to defend John Daly's talent so this is new. He is most certainly talented. We can all agree he's a head case. You don't win 2 majors if you are a head case AND aren't incredibly talented. If he had Tiger's work ethic, he'd have won 15 majors. The guy is super talented. I would actually argue that John Daly have more god given talent than any golfer who has played the game.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    His girlfriend is nice. She was following him around at the John Deere Classic. She said he picks out all of those loud clothes himself.

    You couldn't be more wrong and no he didn't need Tiger's work ethic, he needed his ability.

    You are the one that is wrong. Professional golfers everywhere talk about Daly's natural talent. If he worked as hard on his game as everyone else he would have won 5+ majors, not 2.

    76 golfers in HISTORY have won 2 majors. That's it. That alone shows that Daly has talent and he did it despite being a fat drunk

    Re: John Daly

    The guy is only playing because of exemptions. There's a lot of people here confusing being a draw with talent. The number of guys with more talent than Daly is easily in three figures.
