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.
