Good times in Memphis...
John Daly, who lives on the course where he is playing in the Stanford St. Jude Championship, reported to authorities that his wife attempted to stab him with a steak knife early Friday, authorities said.
Daly, 41, called police about 6 a.m. on Friday to report the alleged assault, Shelby County Sheriff's department spokesman Steve Shular said.

When deputies arrived, she and the couple's children were not there. Deputies could not find the knife he claimed she used.
Red marks could be seen on both of Daly's cheeks as his warmed up on the course Friday afternoon. Play had been delayed by weather.
It will be Daly's decision whether to press charges, Shular said. No charges had been filed Friday afternoon.
* Daly comments:
"While I slept at home last night, I was the victim of an assault by my wife," Daly said.
"This morning, I filed a complaint with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. They are investigating, and I'll have no further comment on the matter while they pursue their investigation.
"My only concern at this point is for the safety of my children and myself, and we are working closely with local authorities and PGA Tour security officials to assure appropriate safeguards."
