Player of the Daly
You know those moments when you wake up in the morning and just feel like going to the gym? Oh, come on…it’s one of those days you throw down a Pomegranate juice before you stretch and head to work out backs and biceps? You have no idea what I’m talking about? Well, then you probably have a lot in common with Dr. John Daly.
Daly’s popularity has always been odd to me – you’re talking about an alcoholic that has admitted to trashing hotel rooms and gambling millions of dollars away while divorcing more “ladies” than Hal Sutton and yet he is still one of the most popular golfers in the world. Wherever you stand with Big John, I’m a huge fan and always enjoy watching him finish a tournament without withdrawing.
Fredrik “Soul Patch” Jacobson and Adam “My Life Makes Yours Seem Petty” Scott are at the top of the leader board after the first day. TPC Southwind played pretty tough on Thursday, with more people shooting in the 80s (11) than breaking par (7).
Maybe it’s just me, but if the St. Jude people really want to attract golfers the week before the U.S. Open, maybe making it extremely difficult isn’t the best way to go about it. Who wants to get their ass kicked two weeks in a row?
