Looks like he may have dislocated his knee cap. Ouch.

Having blown up a knee in uncle rico days, seeing knee injuries always makes me want to puke.

The key is to train (wisely/consistently) and keep your legs, butt, and core strong. Takes so much pressure off the knee.

Hope he recovers asap.

100%. My build had gotten to resemble his, although Iím a few inches taller. Iíve had a wobbly knee since about 1997 but this year I really noticed the stress I was putting on it. Dropped 20 lbs since May but slipped on a wet porch in September and felt my knee slip out for a split second. Havenít played golf since but certain I need something done to it. Waiting until January so it hits next yearís out of pocket. But no doubt the weight is a big factor for JD.

Whether it's the narrative that the gym is getting golfers injured, being obese or a hectic lifestyle. One way or another life finds a way to humble almost every man.

I dunno about Daly going forward but it's remarkable the career he managed with the lifestyle he lived. I don't know how he managed to get through reasonable tournament schedules even in his senior years. Most of us are shot playing a 3 day event. Daly rips cigs and diet cokes and plays 10-20 of them a year at 50+ carrying nearly 100lb of dead weight.

Get well soon Big John!

And goddammit, get a little fit! You earn a princely sum of money playing professional golf, so live at least halfway like a professional. Beer, burgers, M&Ms, cigarettes and diet coke are not a good diet for a 20 year old, but you are over 50! Almost all the senior pros hit the ball longer on average now than 20 years ago, you don't. You already lost your biggest advantage over the field, now do something to make your body fit for what you do. You are the biggest underachiever in the game of golf.

(I am NOT a John Daly hater, I like to see him play well, but to see him walk aroud with a fag in his mouth, his wobble belly hanging over his belt is pathetic)

I tore my ACL way back when, and in between the tear and getting it fixed (6-8 months), I went down several times. Just planted, thought it was firm, and it gave out. And, it felt like I tore it all over again. . .it swelled up; I had to be helped to a seat, etc etc. Also, it was going down steps and hills.

Can't diagnose it from afar, but this is the second time he's gone down on it in competition, right? And, he was on that downslope.

All I know is that the look on his face as he sat there on the ground looked very familiar to me.

Call me cold hearted, but I expected total failure for 3 of the 4 I've known it to happen to personally (they've never been the type to stick to diets/exercise/not drink alcohol excessively/etc) and they failed miserably. The 4th was the only eyebrow-raiser, he was gung-ho about the surgery and how it was going to help him curb his appetite. He only lost 60 pounds over a year and has put 40 of it back on (surgery was done 3 years ago) according to his wife when he was out of earshot. It really is a procedure that requires both self-discipline and  a lifestyle change to work; but gets billed as this magical cure-all for obesity. At any rate, all 4 refused to stop eating horribly or quit drinking.

Around here it's known as Chris Christie Syndrome.
