Sergio’s club-throwing into a lake is reminiscent of Tommy “Thunder” Bolt’s past performances and is one of Golf World’s “Top 10 Golfing Tantrums”
Surprise, surprise, no John Daly antics. The man who seems to have found some form. Currently tied 6th at the first round of the 2012 PGA Championships.
Bill Pennington does a great job bringing us up to date on “Long John”.
“John Daly is 46 now, with a face that is growing leathery and a sluggish gait slowed all the more by the slightest limp. His shoulders sag, he has had lap-band surgery and he seems mildly embarrassed — and like something from another era — when he steps aside, turning his back to light a cigarette. But the eyes still twinkle and Thursday his pants were incandescent splotches of orange and black. His golf shirt screamed to the everyman populace with a Nascar sensibility.
“It sure was getting good and loud out there,” Daly said, describing the raucous scene around him that might have been at home at Darlington Raceway 160 miles away. “I love when it gets like that. Some guys out here don’t like crowds of people yelling and screaming, but not me. I say, Let’s have some fun.”
Fun is, of course, what made Daly famous, and infamous. He won the 1991 P.G.A. Championship as an alternate, captured a British Open title four years later and then dropped hundreds of spots in the world golf rankings in a blur of suits, suspensions and sobriety issues.”

“But that’s what draws people to me and my golf game,” he said. “It is up and down. So is my life. Everybody’s life is up and down. It’s how we battle to get through it, and people relate to that.” – Bill Pennington quoting John Daly
