After shooting 71 today at Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, Daly announced that he's quitting golf. Does anyone believe that? How many of us have said the same after a frustrating round? I can admit that I certainly have when nothing went right with my game. But, of course, I was out there again the next week.
I suspect it's marketing for his upcoming Golf Channel program, "Being John Daly." And, if it's not, his retirement will be short-lived. He's worked hard to get this far with his surgery, weight loss, better eating regimen, etc..
Sponsors love him because he's still a draw and, without Tiger, golf needs every possible draw. Look forward to seeing you playing again soon, John!
