John Daly Implies Tiger Woods Cheated Because Elin Wasn’t Giving Him Any

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.”

John Daly Ex Says Golfers Paid for Sexual Favors at TPC Southwind in Memphis

When the fourth ex-wife of John Daly decides to speak out, one would assume her goal is to throw golf’s notorious bad boy under the bus. While that may be true to some extent, Sherrie Daly seems to be targeting the entire PGA in her memoir, “Teed Off: My Life as a Player’s Wife on the PGA Tour.” Of course, Sherrie is the ex-wife of a wacky clothes-wearing, chain-smoking party animal, so her stories are bound to be colorful.

While Sherrie talks about everything from fighting off strippers and Hooters girls to finding her husband in bed with other women, Deadspin called our attention to one particularly entertaining claim she made about the 16th hole at TPC Southwind in Memphis.

I’d been told by many men in Memphis, including my banker, that there was a girl who’d give golfers [oral sex] when they got to the sixteenth hole . . . Apparently, all they had to do was pay $300 when they got there, and she’d take them into the bushes.”

I don’t watch a ton of golf, but I play quite a bit.  It has to be assumed that Sherrie is talking about practice rounds, because I don’t see how someone would have enough time to receive a sexual favor between holes 16 and 17 during a tournament.  Not to mention, the cameramen would probably be wondering where the golfers have been disappearing to after they sink their puts on the 16th green.  If this practice is going on during tournaments and no one has caught on, the price should probably be steeper than $300. Just saying.

John Daly Providing Wacky Clothing for Tennessee Vols

Get ready to puke because the orange for Tennessee will now have a new meaning. The Wiz of Odds shares the news that John Daly’s clothing company, Loudmouth Golf, has a contract with Tennessee to provide clothing for the university. The Knoxville News Sentinel has more details on the deal, saying Loudmouth will provide “check-pants, shorts, shirts and skorts.”

Sorry, but some assistance is needed here. What exactly are check-pants and what the heck are skorts? Even better question: who the heck would ask John Daly to design clothing for them? As Happy Gilmore said it best, if I saw myself in those pants “I’d kick my own ass.” Guess there was a method to America’s favorite party animal’s outlandish outfits on the course. Apparently goofy pants and a fat ass are the new requirements for cheering for the Vols. Here’s a sneak peak at the Vols John Daly gear, keep in mind those pants will set you back over $100. Really.

News Flash: John Daly Loves to Party

If you remember, John Daly got off one of his legendary quotes recently, saying he doesn’t work out because it makes him throw up. The money shot … why work out to throw up when you can drink and throw up just the same? Daly at his finest. Well, this just into the LBS newsdesk, John Daly apparently loves to party. Who knew? And this time it got to be too much for his swing coach, Butch Harmon:

“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.”

“All the guys I work with are working their (tails) off. John didn’t have it. I like the kid, but he’s got to get his head on straight. The partying and other shenanigans, if that’s the way he wants to be, I don’t choose to be a part of it.”

Tiger’s always said he works as hard as he does because he doesn’t have Daly’s talent. That say enough for you? And the recent shenanigans by Daly included letting Jon Gruden to caddy for him, and then spending the weekend at Hooters after missing the cut. Maybe he just goes there for the food.

John Daly on Throwing Up

You couldn’t possibly find more polar opposites on the golf course than John Daly and Tiger Woods. Woods is athletic, hard-working, and meticulous. Daly is carefree, out-of-shape, and sloppy. Woods gives golfers a good name in the athletic world. Daly single-handedly undoes 10 years of progress in the way golfers are viewed. So when Tiger Woods suggested being in good shape helped him rough the heat at Southern Hills in Oklahoma last weekend, it was no surprise to hear that John Daly was having none of that nonsense.

“Fat boys like me can get through the heat. Every time I worked out I threw up and I thought to myself that you can get drunk and throw up, so it’s just not for me.

“I’m flexible enough, there are probably some things I could do to keep my flexibility up, but I’d rather smoke, drink diet Cokes and eat. I get enough exercise walking five or six miles a day.”

You know what, there are similarities between the two situations. The more you do of each — drinking and exercising — the harder it becomes to throw up. Who knew? I guess Daly never wanted to get that far with working out.
