You have never, ever fit the prototype of a clean-cut, classy PGA golfer like the rest of them, John Daly. For that, we thank you. The same man whose ex-wife revealed some saucy secrets about TPC Southwind just a short month ago has done it again. This time, Daly is sticking up for a man after his own heart — Tiger Woods.
On Wednesday, Daly spoke with 790 The Zone and the topic of the Tiger Woods scandal naturally came up. Daly said he believes Tiger would have been much better off had he just told the world the truth following the initial incident outside his home.
“I told him,” Daly explained. “I said, if you would have come out after that night of the incident and told the world what was going on, not listened to your agents, not listened to anybody else, what your heart said and thought – what you just told me – this story would have ended in one day. You’re looking at a guy all the way to his college days, all it was was golf, golf, golf, golf, golf..he never had a chance to live a life. You know, certain things people go through, certain things you like, certain things you don’t like…He found out late what he really liked…He didn’t have a chance to find out what women were like…until his late teens…almost 20.”
I’m sure Tiger appreciates the support, but I doubt he feels as though Daly’s comments will help improve his image. What he said next certainly will not.
“My exes…they didn’t want to have sex anymore,” Daly said. “And when that happens, and I’ve always been straight up front with every one of ‘em: I said, if you’re not gonna give it to me, I am gonna go get it somewhere else…is that adultery? Well, maybe so, but from what I understand, when you’re married they’re supposed to give it to you.”
The radio hosts then asked him if he thinks Tiger should have just come right out and told everyone his wife wasn’t giving it up so he went and got it somewhere else, to which Daly responded, “Exactly…that’s what I did.”
