Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

John Daly, professional golf's drunkest uncle, is 47 years old and still playing the game like someone who's there for the sunshine and the beer more than he is the actual golf.

Daly finished his round today at the Tampa Bay Championship with a score of 90, good for 19 over par. Most of the damage was done on the par-four 16th, where Daly put three balls into the water and needed 12 shots to advance. His description of how things got out of hand on that hole is peak Daly:

"It really wasn't that bad of a drive," Daly said of his disaster at the 16th.

"Then I tried to hit two three-woods over the water and then bailed out left. Shanked a seven-iron from there. Got up and down for a 12. It was a good 12."


It was a good 12. Yes it was, John Daly. Yes it was.


If Daly ever gets into any kind of hall of fame, that shot chart should be his plaque.
