There's Always 2010 John


John Daly has always reminded me of a Florida version of Charlie Sheen, minus the good looks and pretty haircut but blessed with the ability to hit a golf ball 350 yards. The guy is a beast, in every meaning of the term. A living legend of kinda-but-not-really-functioning-alcoholics everywhere, he has gambled away over $50 million in his life and wasted rare, god given talent like few others. He's been suspended by the PGA yet again this time for a wide-ranging list of "unbecoming" offenses:

John Daly smashed one tee shot off the top of a beer can during a pro-am. At another tournament, he returned from a rain delay with Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden as his caddie. And his most memorable photo this year came in an orange jail suit, eyes half-closed.

Daly said Wednesday that such unwelcome publicity is why the PGA Tour suspended him for six months.
The best part is his explanation of how he ended up spending that night in jail:

He drew the most attention from the night in jail. Daly told the AP that his friends called police when they feared he had passed out, claiming they were unaware he sleeps with his eyes open when he's had too much to drink. Daly was put in jail under a state law called "Assistance to Intoxicated Persons."
I'll miss him when he is gone for good. Daly alone makes following professional golf worth it.
