John Daly continues to mock PGA Tour by using Bucs coach Jon Gruden as caddie
John Daly is up to his same routine in the PODS Championship. Which means treating the PGA Tour like it’s a bigger joke than Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon’s YouTube video war.
Only, Daly’s not a paid comedian, just a paid clown brought in by sponsors (the only way he can still play) to do things like … well, what he did today. When the PODS (finally a tournament name that’s not longer than War & Peace, even if nobody knows what it means) went into a rain delay, Daly ducked into the Hooters Owl’s Nest corporate hospitality tent.
Of course, he did.
But that wasn’t enough. No, two and half hours later, Daly emerged when play began again with Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden as his caddie. Daly and Gruden hooked up in the Hooters Nest and somehow the big lout convinced the NFL coach that this was a fine idea.
Think Gruden would ever allow Daly or any one else plucked off the street to work as his defensive backs coach during a game? Of course not. But Gruden treats his job seriously. Unlike Daly.
Look, if Boo Weekley pulled Gruden out of a hospitality tent and used him for seven holes as a caddie it would be amusing. But Weekley’s a full-fledged PGA Tour player who doesn’t have to depend on sponsors giving him exemptions he doesn’t deserve.
And his life’s not a train wreck of irresponsible, self-destructive behavior (give or take one airport incident).
Golf needs more humor sure. It just doesn’t need it from Daly, who’s thrown away more talent than Mickey Mantle even drunk away.
Of course, this incident will probably even pump up Daly’s already ridiculous appearance fees. He reportedly received 50 grand just for showing up at a Chicago golf show recently.
Is Tim Finchem ever going to step in?
Or is Daly like slow play, simply something to be ignored?

And Daly's won two more majors than 98% of the rest of the guys on the Tour. It seems that holding his failure to win more against him is extremely petty.
Ross was right in one respect...Daly's caddy sure hasn't been a lot of help lately.
"John" - welcome to the blogs! We really need more illiterate ranting around here! *sigh* That was "satire" in case 'ronmon' is lurking....
Judging by his incohent rant, I'd say that john has been hitting the sauce and/or the bong rather early for a Friday.

Is your life so perfect that you think you can get away with this kind of condescending, holier than thou ranting and not come off looking like the jerk you obviously are?
"Glenn" - I feel badly about having to point out that we (Alex and I) were not making value judgements on "John's" lifestyle choices. Our comments simply pointed out that his post was inappropriate and rather incoherent. As regards a 'perfect life'...well, yes, mine IS pretty close. Sorry yours isn't.
John Visitor obviously posted on the wrong blog, although I found it no more or less coherent than many of the posts on that particular subject.
Glen was obviously referring to John Daly re lifestyles, not John Visitor.
Not too sure about Bob though.
I apologize, I didn't even think that Glenn's post was related to Daly, it sounded like the usual drivel regarding comments. I say that because Bald One's original post didn't seem remotely 'holier than thou' or condescending...but that's just my view.
You'd have to admit if the general run of comments is on par with 'John Visitor' there IS a definite problem with coherence....and not just on the 'hawk' posts...*smile*
Who cares? I care.
If you don't care about being a paratrooper, that's your business.
There are a couple of guys from the 82nd that belong to my club and they don't mind admitting it.
What's with you? No pride in your outfit?

Not much. Just as your opinion of your lucky ex-husband doesn't have much to do with golf.

Just a thought
