John Daly used to drink 26-28 cans of Diet Coke a day

john-dalyAnyone who believes John Daly is a healthy human being should probably have their head examined. The 47-year-old has toned it down a bit in recent years, but he still smokes like a chimney and has admitted to binge drinking in between his frequent attempts at getting back on the wagon. He also slams Diet Coke like nobody’s business.

In a recent interview with Ewan Murray of The Guardian, Daly spoke about his personal life and the lap-band procedure he had done back in 2009. He has shed a few pounds and curbed some bad habits since having the surgery. For example, he has cut his Diet Coke intake in half. He still drinks enough to drown a small child.

“I still drink that but not nearly as much as I used to,” Daly explained. “The band won’t allow me to drink as many. If I don’t have ice, I can’t drink it. I can’t have it straight because of the carbonation. I have to drink it slowly and not out of a can, I need some ice. I used to have 26-28 cans a day. Now I have 10-12 at the most.”

I can’t decide if drinking a 30-pack of Diet Coke per day would be more or less dangerous than drinking a 30-pack of beers. Considering Daly probably did both in his drinking prime, it doesn’t really matter. Add the 40 cigarettes he said he smokes a day to the mix and you realize that John Daly is pretty much still John Daly. The pants he wore a few months ago could have confirmed that.

John Daly wears ‘SpongeBob’ pants at Qatar Masters

John-Daly-SpongeBob-pants

John Daly is known for many things. His long drive and love for partying are two of them. His wacky wardrobe selections are another, and the 47-year-old may have outdone himself this week on the European Tour.

Daly is playing in the Qatar Masters, where he has decided to redefine the pants game. During the pro-am event on Tuesday prior to the start of the tournament, he wore slacks with “SpongeBob SquarePants” plastered all over them. On Wednesday, he went with a sunflower theme for the first round of play.

I think I speak for all of us when I say I can’t wait to see what Daly has in store for the second round. And hopefully he makes the cut, because who knows what might be waiting in his closet for the weekend. It’s outfits like the ones you see above that inspire reporters like this.

John Daly tells Miley Cyrus sex is just as good at age 40 as it is at 20

john-dalyJohn Daly loves to party. They don’t call him “Wild Thing” for no reason. Despite his uncanny ability to drive the ball well over 300 yards on a consistent basis, Daly over the years has mastered the art of making headlines for all the wrong reasons. In that sense, he and Miley Cyrus have a lot in common.

Cyrus appeared on the “Today Show” on Monday morning and discussed a wide range of topics with Matt Lauer. Of course, Lauer had to ask her about stuff like swinging naked on a wrecking ball and dry humping foam fingers. At one point he asked Miley if her “sexual side” is just a phase that will run its course.

“Well, I heard when you turn 40 things start to go a little less sexual,” Cyrus responded. “Probably around 40, around that time. I heard that’s when people don’t have sex anymore, so I guess maybe around then.”

Daly, who has been married four times, is 46 years old and took offense to Miley’s comment. He sent her a tweet to let her know how he felt about it.

Not all guys in their 40s park their RV outside of Hooters and talk about how their ex-wife wanted them to pay for sex, John. Miley was just speaking in general terms.

John Daly hits ball off David Feherty’s face (Video)

Give David Feherty some credit because that man has some serious stones. The Golf Channel show host let John Daly hit a ball off a tee sitting in his mouth as a promo for the season finale of his show. Daly will be a guest on the show, naturally, which should translate to strong ratings based on the stories he tells. The season finale airs on Monday night at 10PM ET on Golf Channel. And if the show ends up cancelled, there may be an opening for him on “Jackass.”

John Daly parked his RV at the Augusta Hooters. Of course. (Photo)

John Daly won’t be playing in the Masters this year (he hasn’t since 2006), but that didn’t stop him from deciding to hang out in Augusta this week, because what does he have better to do these days? And in the most John Daly move ever, he parked his RV outside of a Hooters.

Turns out Daly served as the head rules official of the Hooters Wing-Eating World Championship on Wednesday. The star-studded event was headlined by Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas. Daly’s main responsibility was “certifying the wings to be used” in the contest. Don’t worry; I have no clue what that means, either. Whatever it was, it required a “wing certification ceremony.”

This is what happens when you haven’t been a member of the PGA Tour since 2007, are currently ranked 285th in the world and run out of balls at tournaments. But hey, hanging out at Hooters is never a bad thing.

Video: John Daly Goes Tin Cup at Australian Open

John Daly went Tin Cup at the Australian Open Thursday, hitting seven balls into the water before walking off the course after running out of balls. The meltdown was similar to Daly’s experience at Bay Hill in 1998 when he hit six balls into the water and took an 18 on the sixth hole. Daly was on the 11th hole Thursday and was already seven over par through 10 holes. A fan in the gallery took a video of Daly and posted it to YouTube. This was Daly after hitting his last ball into the water:

Daly has been invited to golf tournaments on exemptions from sponsors for quite some time, but you have to wonder why they even bother. Then again, people love John Daly for his meltdowns like this one, so maybe this is exactly what they want.

Daly won’t be allowed to play in the Australian PGA Championship after his antics at the Open.

Fist pound to LBS contributor Gene for the heads up.

John Daly: Ex-Wife Sherrie Miller Wanted $2,500 to Have Sex, Wasn’t Worth a Cent

John Daly has been a notorious party animal on the PGA Tour, the Tiger Woods before Tiger Woods, only with infinitely less discretion. He’s been the voice of reason, suggesting that Tiger’s relationship problems were the result of wife Elin not giving her husband enough sex. Daly would know because he says that’s what happened with him.

In an interview with Playboy, Daly says he’s really close to being a nymphomaniac if he’s not one already. He also explained what went wrong with each of his four failed marriages. No explanation was as humorous as the one he provided for his breakup with Sherrie Miller, his latest wife.
