Thinner? Eh, it might be the hair
Given my open letter to John Daly a few weeks ago, I think it’s my responsibility to keep an eye on him. Again, I don’t want Daly to be thin. I really don’t. But I also want the guy to be around in our lives for the next 20 years.
Daly missed the cut this year and I don’t think hanging out at the Hooters “Owl Nest” after his day helped matters much.
With his weekend free, Daly returned to the course and hung around at the Hooters “Owl’s Nest” lounge at the course, drinking beer and signing autographs. He said his sponsors requested he be there.
That was the last straw for Harmon, who dumped Daly not long after.
“My whole goal for him was he’s got to show me golf is the most important thing in his life,” Harmon said at the time. “And the most important thing in his life is getting drunk.”
Come on John! No heart attacks and no puking on the golf course. Since my last visit it appears Daly may have trimmed off a couple but I guarantee you he reads Uncoached and that’s why. Do I smell John Daly exclusive in our future? I think so.
But as much as I think he might have shed some of the extra baggage, notice the clean cut semi-white trash haircut. I think it’s the ‘do that’s making him look thinner. Sites have him listed at 5’11 and range between 220 and 283 lbs.
I think the ultimate “fun beer guy” weight for his height should be around 230-240. John’s gotta be pushing 275.
I’ll be watching you big guy!
