Golf Australia Express : GA Express 191
“Hopefully I don’t embarrass myself out there,” Daly said. “I’ll be fresh, but I don’t know how great my golf game will be. I can sit here and hit all the balls and chip and putt all day long, but if you’re not playing competitive golf – there’s nothing better than competitive golf. You go week to week to week and you seem to get better as it goes. “I’m coming in fresh. I don’t really have any expectations, just to go play and try and do the best I can.” While the competitive fire obviously still burns, one has to question how he will cope physically. He hasn’t treated his body like a temple for most of his life. For example, when told in college that he needed to lose weight, he went on a diet of whiskey and popcorn. His battles with the demon drink have been well-publicised over the years as has his fight against an expanding waistline, which he tackled with lap-band surgery in 2009. That surgery forced him to cut back on his Diet Coke intake from 28 cans a day because of the carbonation. But a collapsed lung last November wasn’t enough of a warning to give up the smokes, which he apparently chugs on even in his gym. “They thought I had a heart attack. But I only smoke two packs of cigarettes a day, not three, so I’ll be alright,” Daly said after the incident which saw him rushed to hospital after collapsing during a charity golf event. According to Champions Tour president Greg McLaughlin, Daly’s arrival will be greeted with open arms by sponsors and fans. “The anticipation around his arrival is almost unprecedented,” McLaughlin said recently. “Our players can’t wait, our sponsors are excited and there has been a spike of interest from media and fans.” Given our experiences here in Australia, ‘The Wild Thing’ doesn’t disappoint.
