Golfer John Daly Dumped By Coach For Excessive Partying

It looks like Daly is breaking the Dennis Rodman rule of sports, which says you can get wasted all you want, as long as it doesn’t hinder your performance.

The last straw for Harmon came at the recent PODS championship event, where Daly spent 2 hours in a Hooters corporate tent (most likely drinking). When he emerged from the tent, he had Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden be his caddy for the rest of the day.

“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.”

Daly spent Saturday at the Hooters “Owl’s Nest” at the tournament, drinking beer, mingling with fans and signing autographs, including one on the back of a woman’s pants.

“I’ve let him know that after his actions of last weekend, we are no longer together,” Harmon said. “In all honesty, I’m a very busy person. I’m willing to help the kid, but until he helps himself and makes golf his No. 1 priority, I’m not his guy.

“Jon Gruden caddying, I thought was ridiculous. I thought he made a circus out of the whole event.”

I hear John Daly has a gambling problem too, he estimates that he’s lost over $50 million gambling away his money. I think we all know how this story is going to end….

    Butch is only partially right. John needs to focus on the game and winning. However, I think ‘his people’ don’t care about his golf and are still marketing the ‘down home, partying, don’t give sh*t, grip it and rip it aspect of John. He need to do to them what Butch did to him. Dump them and find someone to promote his golf skills and encourage him to win. And lastly, John needs to apologize to the ‘golf gods’ losing the integrity of the game and believe they will give him good bounces as a reward to his return to golf. John, I wish you the very best the golf gods have to offer and hope to see you once again smiling and enjoying your profession. I really miss watching you play.
