Daly Declines Counseling, Brand Coaches Worldwide Breathe Sigh of Relief

Mark Soltau reports on John Daly's Tuesday talk with reporters.
"My life is unbecoming of a professional, basically," Daly told a handful of reporters Tuesday.

Daly met with PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem for 15 minutes on Monday at Quail Hollow. "He said he thinks I should have counseling," said Daly. "He said, 'I won't make you.'"

Asked if he would consider it, Daly replied, "I'm not really into that."

Actually, Finchem offered to put Daly in touch with a branding coach recommended by Carolyn Bivens.
"Harper Collins wanted to change it," said Daly. "They changed it about eight times. Too many cuss words. The whole book is not just about gambling, it's just life. A lot of good things, and a lot of bad things. It was kind of therapeutic talking about it. I'm 40, and it was cool to get one out now. And, hopefully, there'll be a sequel or a movie, maybe."
