Video Confirmation: Both Daly And Feherty Are Nuts!

I missed the season finale of Feherty last night but I'm guessing there will be repeat airings for the next few weeks. And this is worth watching on a big screen because it's just that insane.

I watched most of it and kept wondering what was wrong with Daly. His eyes were watering, he was very lethargic and almost appeared to be drunk (I am sure he wasn't based on his commitment to sobriety). Then when the show ended I asked myself again "why did I watch another TGC program on John Daly?"
Best Feherty interview in 2012. Daly doesn't hid anything which we should all take note. So many people fake there way around life pretending to be someone they're not!! As humans we are imperfect.Daly isn't out to impress anyone.

@Paul Regalu - "Daly isn't out to impress anyone."

That's good, because he sure isn't impressing anyone.

I think we've just found ourselves a compelling Olympic golf format.

Daly, please go away. How sad is it he had lap ban surgery and is still a bag of donuts. If you are still rooting for John perhaps take a long look at yourself. The WDs, the quitting on the course. He is taking up spots an up and comer could be using. What a waste of talent.

Anybody else notice, now that he's started to put some weight back on, his golf is improving too?
07.31.2012 | Unregistered Commenteroldmanpar
LeeWatson, it's all about the benjamin's....Daly still brings them to the bottom line better than all buy a small handful of other guys. That's the bottom line.

JD is playing better, and he looks ''fatter'' than he is- if you've ever been around him, you'd see that- TV/movies''the camera'' really does add weight to a person.

JD was as honest as it gets, and more than once said that everything about his eff ups has been greatly exaggerated, and if you have ever been at any event (anything- a fire, a car wreck) and seen ''coverage'' later, you know that reporters ALWAYS use extreme adjectives- if it was ''bad'', then it is reported as ''the worst'', etc. So I give JD that.

Finally DF is the insane one, and he kept fishing for JD to admit to more than he would, and DF looked pretty bad doing that. Asking once in an interview is enough--- the 4th or 5th time is just annoyng.

Those like the one above who don't like JD, never will, and IMO, they are the losers, not JD.. He's as real as it gets.

I love JD, but every time DF tried to say come on big guy, you did eff up Daly kept saying most of it was overblown. That's honesty? He tore up hotel rooms, had a fist fight with the father of a player at the PGA Championship, hit his ball while moving at Pinehurst in the US OPEN, hit a driver over the heads of spectators that were about 50 yards in front of him. That isn't the press embelishing the stories JD. Feherty said he thought JD would be dead by the age of 40, which a lot of us thoght, and JD looked at him like he was nuts. That's not honesty guys. That's denial.

Ground control to Major John!
07.31.2012 | Unregistered CommenterTXQ
I don't like guys who WD constantly and quit time and time again, I guess if that means I'm losing out...
07.31.2012 | Unregistered CommenterLeeWatson
He is an enigma, last night fairly well spoken, gracious and sometimes funny. Later in the day, next week or next month, he'll WD, take a 15 on a hole or shoot 85.

All I could think of when I watched the show was that fine Southern expression, "Bless his heart."
07.31.2012 | Unregistered CommenterMike T.
LeeWatson....understood. But those that have a P&L on the line in what is a constantly escalating battle for attendance/coverage/media clearly have a different view....

digger, DF is kind of like a sobriety thumper at this point, trying to get JD to atone...
07.31.2012 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
Of course, we're all fine
07.31.2012 | Unregistered Commenterfwiw
Noted, all points, Ol' Harv, and pretty darn worthy of thought.

About that, DTF--yes, but better for off camera, not in an interview stting--- it was too''ambushy''.

Uh Lee...Lee Watson, this is going to upset you but right now JD is doing exactly the opposite of what he was known for. You
better take a close look at his scores here in the states as well as in Europe this year. He is currently in 6th place at the Reno-Tahoe.

Financial woes do tremendous things to people and JD is actually playing very well. And to that spot you say he takes up on tour..
yes..he does but you know what? People would rather see him for his unpredictability than some robot brat who gets thrown out
there and at the end of the day you were like so...he looks like all the others. JD brings in jing! He puts people on the course and
if you ask me he gets my comeback player of the year. The bag of doughnuts as you call hm couldn't make a cut last year...this
year he has two top 25's and a 10th not to mention making 14 of 16 cuts.

So Lee if he's taking up space when do we hear from you about booting Duval, Pride, Weir, Waldorf and a host of others hanging on.
