‘I’m not gonna lie, I’m drunk’ – John Daly makes wild SEC Nation appearance



With the return of college football over the weekend, John Daly made an appearance on SEC Nation in Arkansas in preparation for the Razorbacks’ game against Cincinnati.

The two-time major champ joined Marty & McGee, with Daly rolling up in a golf cart with a cigarette and a red cup. When offered a beer by fans, Daly responded: “I got some good sh*t right here.”

Then when it was time for Daly to join the crew and announce the “Hillbilly Headlines,” the 56-year-old brought the house down by declaring: “Well, I’m not gonna lie, I’m drunk.”

Clearly enjoying himself, Daly went on to play beer pong with the hosts and even smashed a drive with Paul Finebaum stepping aside to let Daly show off his power:

“I don’t play golf,” Finebaum said, “nor, am I drunk, so I’m going to watch a guy who is drunk and is a two-time majors champion. It’s either the black ball or the white ball. I’m going to put the black ball, which is Cincinnati, for John to hit … Arkansas wins.”

To cap off the day, Daly’s Razorbacks went on to defeat Cincinatti 31-24, and we’ve no doubt that Wild Thing celebrated in style.

As one user put it on Twitter regarding Daly’s latest appearance: “This man should be protected at all costs. National Treasure.”

    Sad in a way. If he had Tiger’s mindset he would have won TONS more events, including many more majors. I saw a quote from Tiger that basically said that. But everyone is free to live out their lives the way they see fit.

    He’s living life to the fullest. Those thinking this is sad are A) Not having nearly as much fun as Daly is having and B) Need to loosen up and have fun in life!!

      Problem is most people can’t be a fun drunk like Daly. They turn into assholes and think they’re gods gift to society.

Data shows how much more difficult green become as the day progresses



For many a golf bettor, betting on the first round leader of any tournament revolves around the early starters.

Even a cursory look at this week’s Australian Open shows the morning wave averaging 1.73 shots better than the afternoon players, resulting in 18 early starters finishing in the top-10 by the end of the day, including current leader David Micheluzzi.

However, over on the South African Open, the roles are reversed, with current leader Thirston Lawrence taking up one of 15 places on the front page of leaderboard for the late starters, who shot around half-a-shot less than the morning groups.

Naturally, there are many factors – wind, temperature, dew, grass-types and, potentially, overall quality of the groupings, but these are variables that can change from day to day.

Step in Lou Stagner, data lead of Arccos Golf and all-round numbers guru.

Stagner does not deal in emotion or factors that cannot be measured. It’s facts, figures and that’s your lot!

He will tell you that from the fairway, 80-yards from the pin, professionals simply don’t get as close as many believe:

On Wednesday, the man who once built a Lego model of Augusta #12, tweeted a table showing the variance in putts made by PGA Tour members under morning and afternoon conditions.

Taking stats over 17 years, the table shows an advantage to the early starters, not by much, but enough to consider.

There are plenty of places to take the stats, with a few respondents asking for a table on grass types through the day – Bent v Bermuda v POA – and that will probably turn up on Stanger’s twitter feed soon.

Of course, on a Sunday, later starters have the pressure of trying to win a tournament, which is why we tend to see flashy rounds from those a few off the pace on Payday, but it is enough to consider when trying to get that illusive three-figure first (or second) round leader.

Either way, two-time major champion, and regular tweeter Justin Thomas, decided this was his chance to get in an early excuse when he’s off late in the day.

Make of what you will. Perhaps the stats will one day include how many of these are for par saves against birdie putts, or is that too much?

Either way, Stagner continues to bombard us with stats that delight and entertain, and that can be no bad thing. Unless you are a buddy of Lou’s…

Cam Smith fumes at ‘pretty s****y’ opening round at Australian Open



After an incredible week at the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship, Cameron Smith is off to a rough start at the Australian Open. The Champion Golfer of the Year struggled to hit fairways all day long and finished his round at +1 which is eight shots back of first-round leader David Micheluzzi (-7).

Smith, who received a massive ovation from the crowd, was extremely displeased, calling his play “pretty shitty” as he went from his post-round press conference to the practice range. The 29-year-old also said it was “as bad as I’ve played in a long time”.

“I don’t think it was a mixed bag, I think it was all rubbish to be honest,”

“Maybe some delayed tiredness, maybe. I did feel a little bit foggy out there at times, but it’s not really an excuse, it’s my job to do all that stuff.”

Despite the uninspiring round, the world number three still feels as if he can get back into the event and contend.

“It’s not like I don’t know how to play golf, it was just a bit of a bad day.”

“I’ve just got a few things to clean up, I think. Like I said last week [at the Australian PGA Championship], I felt as though the golf got better every day.”

The Aussie is incredible at recovery shots and finding his way out of trouble. But if he wants to be the first player to win the Australian PGA and Australian Open in the same season since 2011, he needs to start putting the ball in the fairway.

‘Take the first shot!’ – Epic outburst captured between golfers at Australian Club Championship



Early this week, a clip of a hilarious outburst on the golf course was circulating the internet.

At the club championships at Cranbourne Golf Club in Australia, a golfer exploded in anger at another player who followed him on to the fairway.

During the two-part video, it looks like the man in red is angry at the older gentleman for hitting into his group.

At one point during the exchange, the man in white and grey says “Wanna smash me up, do ya?! I’m 61 years old!”.

Golf is game that can certainly bring out all of our emotions. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
