The sad, sad saga of John Daly

This guy was the most popular player in the game before Tiger. In fact, he would have been Tiger Woods if it weren't for his personal problems. He's currently earning enough to support his train-wreck life, but that will end. I predict IRS woes will follow this book, ending in bankruptcy within the next five years or so. Who knows? Maybe it will be the best thing to happen to him.

Anyway, here's the article. Excerpt:

But the gambling continued.

Daly three-putted from 15 feet on the second playoff hole against Woods at Harding Park. He headed to Las Vegas and lost $600,000 within 30 minutes. He said he took out another $600,000 line of credit and lost that in two hours.

"And here's how my sick mind analyzed the situation," Daly wrote. "My sponsorship payments would be coming through in January, so I'd be able to pay everything off and get back to even by the beginning of the new year. Everything's fine. Everything's OK. No problema. Hell, yes, there's a problema."

Sadly, the man is addicted to booze, crazy ex-wives, and gambling.
