John Daly threw his putter in a lake and walked off a course in Florida
John Daly decided to ditch his final round at the Allianz Championship Sunday in Florida after reportedly aggravating a back issue – but before he left the course, he deposited his putter in the nearest water hazard.
Daly completed just seven holes in his final round, carding bogeys on three of his last four holes. According to Links Magazine, Daly then hurled his putter in the water and left the course.
“Daly was struggling with some back issues and not playing great golf. After back-to-back bogeys at 6 and 7, Daly decided he had had enough, withdrawing and citing a problem with his Sciatic Nerve.
Visibly frustrated, Daly threw his putter into the lake behind the 7th green, adding one more to the list of blowups and club tosses in his long career. Daly immediately left the course without speaking.”
