Daly has his priorities straight

John Daly has been cut loose by one of the game's best swing coaches, Butch Harmon, who said he was not going to waste his time with a two-time major champion who is more interested in drinking than working on his golf game. "My whole goal for him was he's got to show me golf is the most important thing in his life," Harmon said from his golf school in Las Vegas. "And the most important thing in his life is getting drunk."

Daly, playing on a sponsor's exemption, last week, because he no longer has his full PGA Tour card, spent a 2 1/2-hour rain delay during Thursday's first round in a Hooters corporate tent behind the 17th green drinking beer, mingling with fans and signing autographs, including one on the back of a woman's pants. When play resumed, he had Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden caddy for him the rest of the day. Daly ended up with a 77. He followed that with an 80 in the second round to miss the cut.

How could Harmon have expected a different result? Did he even bother to look at Daly's resume? Even my 3 year old daughter knows how to use Wikipedia.

Without a full tour card, I am not sure how Daly is able to support three alimony payments. At least they'll be done in a few years. Right about the time he's found dead, face down in a plate of hot wings.
