John Daly Gets Hamered in Los Angeles


John daly has withdrawn from the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic Saturday morning with a supposed "rib injury".

Hmmmm.... "Rib injury" sounds like a not so clever way to say "Hungover".

Here's a blurb from today's Los Angeles Times: Daly has been a regular this week at the Hope's tournament parties. He attended two more tournament parties Friday night, including an after-party, and told one local reporter to ignore the fact that he was drinking. At the first party, Daly sang "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" in a duet with Alice Cooper. Eyewitnesses said Daly was helped out of the after-party by an unidentified man.

Maybe the "rib injury" was so painful that he had to get out for a night on the town... have a few drinks to alleviate the pain.

Do you think partying it up was in Butch Harmon's plans.

You'd think a guy without his tour card - yes he's playing on a sponsor's exemption -might be just a little more responsible.

I guess it kinda makes sense, when I was in college, I used to have a few pops every once and a while... and sing a few tunes... perhaps the Squeeze or Meatloaf. Oh, but my ribs weren't injured.

Its his choice, but it was a bit irresponsible especially with a game the next day!

Maybe his alleged "rib" problem was his liver screaming for mercy inside his chest cavity?

I suppose there are examples of this type of behaviour in many sports, especially those that can potentially draw big money. At least as golf is not a team game, he's only harming his own chances. Hopefully he doesn't go the way of sports stars such as George Best.
