John Daly explains Tiger Woods beef from 2019 PGA Championship

Published

on

John Daly and his son John Daly II recently hit the headlines for winning the PNC Championship, with the father-son combo seeing off a strong effort from Tiger Woods and his son Charlie.

Following the win, the elder Daly took the time to appear on the Full Send Podcast, where he shared several stories from his colorful career on and off the golf course.

During the show, John Daly was speaking about his love for Tiger before host Bob Menery interjected, saying, “He did make a comment though, he busted your balls once”, referring to the 2019 PGA Championship when Tiger was asked about Daly using a cart, responding: “As far as JD taking a cart, well, I walked with a broken leg, so,”

On the podcast, Daly was quick to blame the media for the incident and said that Tiger even apologized for his comment.

“Yeah, but he didn’t know the facts because the media, ‘the media’ (sarcastic gesture) didn’t tell him I had diabetes and I had a bad two knees and my hips out and all this stuff. He apologized to me at dinner the other night. I mean, he’s fine. I love Tiger.”

Daly also added that he was one of the first men to text Tiger following his car crash in February and that Woods greatly appreciated the words of comfort from the 1995 Open Champ.

“Look, I was the only guy that texted him going through all this. Besides JT (Justin Thomas) and a couple of other players, when he had that wreck, I was the first one to say ‘Hey man, get better and do good.’

And at the dinner, when I was Santa Claus, he says, ‘Man, thank you so much for the texts. It means a lot to me.’ And that meant a lot to me.”

    JD is a legend… On the other hand these three with Full Send are complete tools. Might be one of the dumbest interviews i have ever seen. Get a grip and ask a real question without saying the word “fu*k” 9 times a sentence. Brutal. Complete waste of time.

    The media loves JD though and they will hump or suck anything to make a story no matter how false it may be. Without JD, there is not much else to report, right? LOL! He reminds me of Biden telling stories about all he has done and who’s he whipped.

    All you supporters of a failed one term loser who bankrupted CASINOS are the biggest snowflakes on the planet.
    Anybody who looks at Daly knows he’s a freaking train wreck health wise. I totally see some amputations in his future.

    Daly blaming the media, typical tRumper. Daly had diabetes due to his alcholism and weight, just another excuse for a career that could have been much more. Hopefully his son doesn’t follow in his steps.

    Tiger must not have many friends. Is it because he has so many things he hides, like his pill popping problem…
    One of the questions you get ask when you are on hard Messi’s , have you ever fell a sleep in a car at a traffic stop.
    He fell a sleep in the morning after just getting up, what a dope.

        Worse than golf equipment advertising propaganda. If we quit watching and clicking they will go away, just as if we quit buying repainted clubs every year.

Tour pro withdraws from Australian PGA after slicing hand mid-round

Published

on

After being postponed twice because of Covid, you would think the dominant story at the Australian PGA might be the first-round lead, held by world number 1387 Louis Dobbelaar.

However, in a bizarre incident Damien Jordan grabbed the headlines with a withdrawal, according to Australian Associated Press, due to ”slicing his hand trying to move a stake on the course.”

Full details are not clear as yet but Golf Australia’s editor, Jimmy Emanuel, first reported on the accident on Twitter, posting that Jordan “went to move a stake on course and sliced his hand the entire width from top to bottom. Quite heavy bleeding so off to see a doctor.”

At the event itself, Dobbelaar leads at 7-under and by one from Aaron Pike and Jediah Morgan with short-priced pre-event favourite, Min Woo Lee, just four behind.

Over at the accompanying WPGA event, Su Oh has a clear lead after the first round, being three shots clear at 5-under the card.

They all may ask their caddies to move boundary markers for the rest of the event.

20-handicap player achieves feat never accomplished by PGA Tour pro

Published

on

Ask any handicap golfer their dream shot, and in most cases, it will be the elusive hole-in-one.

Some may even say recording an albatross – three under par – is their flight of fantasy.

Imagine, then, recording both in a five-hole stretch.

The Irish Examiner recently highlighted that very feat, performed by Rowan McCarthy, a 20-handicapper playing Wembley Golf Course in Perth, Australia.

A member of the Irish Perth golf society, McCarthy, who now posts as @shankmagic on Instagram, told the Irish Examiner, “On 12, the hole-in-one, it was a beautiful 7-iron, 169 metres, that drew towards the hole, hit the front of the green and leisurely rolled towards the hole and dropped in dead weight.

“Then on 15, the albatross, it was 185 metres with a 5-iron, downhill, using the bank adjacent the green, ran towards the hole, hit the flag and dropped. I might have caught that one a bit thin.”

According to the golfer himself, “Statistically, the chances of a hole in 1 are 12,000-to-1 and an albatross is 6 million-to-1. The odds of one of each in the same round…who knows? Some say it is 72 billion to one. It is a day I will never forget.”

It was certainly an eventful round with five pars, six bogeys, two doubles and three treble-bogeys accompanying the two obvious standout holes!

A post shared by Rowan McCarthy (@shankmagic)

McCarthy told the Examiner that the thought of giving up had crossed his mind, knowing he would never top what he had just achieved, but ”I love it too much”. “That thought did enter my head” he admitted, ”but the craic, the banter and the friendships I’ve made,” he admitted. “I play off 20, hit thousands of bad shots over the years, there is lots of room for improvement and this will spur me on.”

As such, he hopes the new social media address will ‘influence and give hope to the average golfer that anything is possible.’

One thing that might not is the traditional hole-in-one bar bill!

Brandel Chamblee expertly analyses ‘Putting vs Ball Striking’ debate

Published

on

While discussing Hideki Matsuyama’s putting struggles over the weekend, Brandel Chamblee made some interesting comments regarding the importance of putting on the PGA Tour.

Often times we hear commentators claim that, “whoever makes the most putts will win”; or “putting is the most important aspect of golf”. Chamblee claims that it isn’t who putts the best, it’s who putts the best amongst the premier ball strikers.

“You can’t play this game at the highest level unless you are an extraordinary ball striker.

“It’s not about who makes the most putts, it’s about who putts the best amongst the best ball strikers.

“And when he (Hideki) has a decent week at putting he has a chance to win.”

Check out Chamblee’s commentary in full below.
