John Daly, *Gulp*, Offers Up Some Very Sound Advice


I've never quite got John Daly before. This is a man that has won multiple major championships, is famous across the board, and has been up and down more times than a Vegas corner girl. He has hit rock bottom, he has come back to win events, and now is just treading along at the not-so-young-age of 44. This is a man that has blocked certain golf writers (*clears throat*) on Twitter, and is just waiting on his Champions Tour invite so he can go there, make some good checks, and possibly win again.

But occassionally Daly does things that make you understand that under that Hooters loving, beer-guzzling with Kid Rock drankin', shirt off wearin' wild man is a guy that does want to do some good, and as he gets older and older, I'm sure he will be more inclined to do these things. The action in question is handing out some advice to fellow Razorback Ryan Mallett, who is heading for the NFL.

Mallett has landed in some trouble before, and Daly has talked to him about how to handle the instant fame that comes with becoming a pro. All in all, it is pretty solid advice.

Via PFT ...

"The first thing I wish I would have done was that instead of worrying about how to handle everyone else, how do I handle me? I did a horrible job. I wasn't ready for it," Daly said. "I think the most important thing for Ryan is how he handles himself. Whether it's an interview or whatever, listen to the question before you answer it."

"Some of the things you are going to do off the field, think about the responsibilities," Daly said. "Because I've learned the hard way."


True, true, true and true. Everything Daly says here is sound, and is pretty good stuff to hear if you're 22. You can't teach experience, but if you look at Daly over the years, you see a guy that has done just about everything wrong off the golf course, and still lives to talk about it.

If I was going to talk to one person about how to handle myself, it would probably be Big John. Trust me, it would make more sense than chatting with Corey Pavin about the pains of being a pro.

You're right! Daly has been a total "Train-wreck" for most of his life.

Still,it seems, he is a good guy overall. He seems to be one of those rare individuals who prefers "living" over "life"....and by his rules only. Yet, he manages during brief flashes of brilliance to let his raw talent show through, and does seem to have matured, as he enters his "middle" years.
