Daly hits drive from out of man’s mouth

Bunker Mentality

John Daly has endured and enjoyed one of the most spectacularly chequered careers in golf, if not the whole of sport.

He has stood on top of the world many times, with his victories including an Open Championship at St Andrews and his breakthrough US PGA Championship win as a late alternate in the field, where he drove through the night just to make the first tee and tore the field to pieces.

But there have also been endless struggles with alcohol and gambling addiction, a string of failed marriages, and endless fines from golfing authorities for everything from claiming that most players on the tour were cocaine users to hitting shots while still walking.

One thing has never been in doubt, though: his amazing ball striking ability, and the 46-year-old proved he still has it by smashing a ball teed up in the mouth of former Irish professional turned US TV pundit David Feherty.
