Golf Australia Express : Issue 17
ITMUST BE tough being John Daly. Just ask him. The 45-year-old American has again embroiled himself in an on-course controversy—the latest one being more bizarre than most in a long string of colourful episodes. On Thursday, Daly stormed off Sydney’s The Lakes course midway through his first round at the Australian Open citing he’d run out of balls. His actions have since been condemned around the world, although none have been stronger than Australian Open tournament director Trevor Herden, who labelled Daly “unprofessional” and urged relevant golf bodies to sanction him in light of his latest tantrum. Following the Open incident the PGA of Australia also banned Daly from playing in the PGA Championship at Coolum next week. The Wild Thing came out with an apology of sorts at a Melbourne Pro- Am on Monday, saying he regretted the Sydney walk-off but that he had no choice—after all he’d run out of balls. Of course the footage of Daly’s ‘splashtastic’ adventure on the 11th hole would suggest he wasn’t entirely intending his shots to land on turf. Hitting ball after ball into the drink, Daly repeatedly called his caddie for another ball before the previous one had finished diving in. It was clear to those watching he intended to empty his bag and call it a day. Has John Daly Sealed the Fate of His Career? UP IN SMOKE SAGA THE BEING JOHN DALY “I would say this will be the last time we will see John Daly [in Australia].” –Trevor Herden, Golf Australia
