Really wish he wasn't back on the sauce. There was actually a really touching moment during John's Feherty interview when he mentioned he had tasted an alcohol he was going to sponsor. Feherty, as a fellow recovering alcoholic, pounced hard but you could tell it came from a place of love and respect for a friend and colleague who has been needlessly torn up by alcohol many times.

You think he ever stopped?

 

I had heard that he was sober, but I'm not sure JD's definition of sober is the same as the rest of ours.

 

I think ge just stopped drinking liquor

Beers not alcohol is it?

 

No no, I think you misinterpreted my post. I was just pointing out that for big john, his idea of quitting drinking is just drinking beer. I'm sober 4 + years myself; was just passing on what I have heard.

I was just making a joke in reference to Daly quitting booze and not alcohol. Congrats on the 4 years though!

Certainly a unique character. Will fans ever get tired of these antics?

 

Yeah because kids in South Carolina should only benefit if the decorum is proper.

People relate to him because he's more human than anybody else on tour. By that I mean he doesn't hide or fake anything, he is who he is and people admire him for that. Everyone knows his story and his mistakes. He's one of us who just happens to drive the ball extremely far.

 

Just because someone doesn't hide or fake who they are makes them, "more human", and worthy of admiration? My dad was a foul-mouthed, serial adulterer, alcoholic, child and wife abuser, chain-smoker, and general all-around scoundrel. He "was who he was", and didn't hide it, so, I guess I should have admired him, huh? Oh, he was just a "good ol' boy", or "everyman", a "blue collar hero", right?

 

If it is true that Phil Mickelson fakes his smile, kindness and generosity, then, I'd gladly take that over someone who doesn't hide who they are and are of poor character.

I got fed up with Daly a long time ago.

I don't mind people being a bit different but why people still wanted​ to watch him in the last 10 years or so has baffled me.

Mwkbmw - way to take something the wrong way, twist it and than run with it. I'm sorry your dad was like that but how is that in anyway whatsoever a comparison to Daly? Because he drinks and gambles makes him a terrible human? No it makes him human. You may not like that people admire him for being real but it doesn't make it any less true. He is a true example of a professional athlete in the spotlight who is true to himself and doesn't hide from it. That's what people admire. Who are we to judge anybody for the mistakes they made in their own life?

 

Like I said, if that is what you had to deal with growing up than I'm sorry, but in no way did I ever say that people admire individuals who are like that at all. I wouldn't. And if you can't see the difference between your dad and John Daly than I can't help you there. The guy clearly has a massive following and it's not because he's good at golf.

John Daly appeals to the Nascar crowd. Which is not a bad thing. It's not my thing, but it's his life to live as he chooses. Who are we to judge?

 

John would probably appeal to the Spring Break crowd as well, perhaps in the bellyflop contests.

    • APPLY NOW: L.A.B. Golf MEZZ.1 Putter (Early Access) Member Testing! 10 Testers Needed!
      L.A.B. Golf is choosing ten GolfWRX members to receive their MEZZ.1 putter early and put their brand new product to the test before reporting back to the community about what they see. The selected testers will be one of the first to experience the MEZZ.1 from L.A.B. GOLF, their newest Lie Angle Balanced design, ahead of it's January 2022 launch!
       
      About The L.A.B. Golf Mezz.1 Putter
      MEZZ.1 is our new mid-mallet putter that’s fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) to create our best-feeling — and we think best looking — putter to date. It includes 10 weights (eight on the bottom, two on the sides) that allow us to individually build each putter to a golfer’s exact specifications.
       
      How To Apply
      In a post below, answer the following questions.
       
      1. City, State?
      2. Handicap?
      3. What is your current putter?
      4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter?
      5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter?
      6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos?
       
      That's it! @labgolf and GolfWRX will choose the testers in about 2 weeks! This testing event is for good-standing members in the USA only!
