Surgery looms, so let's cherish Daly
Sad news this weekend out of White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., where John “America Pants” Daly withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic three holes into his second round.
It’s not so much sad because Daly withdrew. He does that all the time (38 times in PGA Tour events, to be exact). And it’s not as though he was in contention. Daly fired a 75 in the first round and had bogeyed two of his first three holes Friday.
It is unfortunate, however, because the injury will require surgery and put Daly out of commission.

And if we know anything about Daly, it’s that whether he’s in contention or not, he keeps things interesting on the course. So now we’ll have to suffer through the rest of the golf season without...
His amazing sense of style, obviously:

And his marriage advice (and he would know, because he’s been divorced four times):

And by no means does Daly being injured mean he can’t give us something to talk about. He can be plenty weird, even when he can’t play:
Get well soon, John. We’re gonna miss you.
