That guy's got to learn who really cares about him and who's just looking for the ride. Ely Callaway supposedly really cared and wanted to help him.....and I guarantee you those doctors were doing what they thought was best for him -- not Callaway.

I'd really like to see Daly play well again. From what little I've seen, he seems like a guy with a good heart and a lot of problems. For me, I just wish the circus that always seems to be swirling around him would stop, whether it's his records being released, him putting out phone numbers on twitter, etc.

The guy does not seem to want to be accountable for either his character flaws or actual mis-steps. He always seems to have an excuse :blink:

 

You're right, it always seems like there's someone else to be blamed. That said, I've always gotten the feeling that he's a genuinely decent guy. I'm not a huge fan either, it's just the impression I've always gotten. I imagine part of the problem is that there are/have to be a lot of enablers in his life since he's been famous.

My first reaction was that a person has sole responsibility for that they put in their body. I'm a fan but John has a tendency to blame everyone else for his troubles rather than looking in the mirror. He won't ever be free of his demons unless he recognizes the role he plays in all this.

Yikes.

 

Daly doesn't really get it. If you want to get back on Tour, knocking sponsors is never the way to go.

John needs to man up and spot blaming other people. Damn. It's ridiculous. He's jumped from so many OEM's because it was THEIR fault. Right... right... right...

Current bag: Some Callaway, some Cleveland. Down to 2 OEM's!

Just like his wife forced that knife on him, I'm sure there was no reason.....

 

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I have zero sympathy for John Daly. He has talent, money, popularity rivaled only by Tiger and Phil. HE has thrown his life away. HE got drunk outside of Hooters. HE pissed away his talent. HE ate himself out of the game. HE drank his life away. Everyone has choices. He has made some bad one. If he can turn things around, I'd "forgive" (not really the best word) him, hell I might even root for him, but I have no sympathy for him.

I think that his issues are related to undiagnosed or maybe diagnosed but not treated addiction issues. These addictions are physical and physiological. Looking from John's perspective, if not doing these things was easy for him, he would stop. The upside of stopping is huge. Plus the decay happens very slowly. Often imperceptibly slow. John is in the fat Elvis stage right now and trying to get back to the skinny Elvis. Elvis tried and obviously didn't make it. John is trying, but his demons are very very strong.

 

Not saying you need to feel sympathy, but maybe compassion.

I am watching it, and it's pretty good. The more I watch, the more I root for him to make a come back.

I'm feeling the same thing... I really like getting to see how the behind the scenes things work, and realize that even though they are millionaires, they are real people and deal with the same stuff we deal with...

His girlfriend is pretty hot, but, boy, she sure can't drive. Do see how freaked out he gets when he is flying? I think the only thing holding him back now is the mental side, he has the tools.
