John Daly is back doing John Daly things. Daly aka Wild Thing aka Long John aka The Lion was having some issues during the final round of the Allianz Championship in Boca Raton Sunday and decided that he no longer needed his putter.

According to Links Magazine:

Starting his round several hours before the leaders, 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. Before he left the course though, he left Broken Sound and the fans a little present to remember him by.

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, so nobody knows the motivation behind the putter toss.

Daly tossing one of his clubs into the drink is child’s play in comparison to that time he tossed $55,000 out of his car window because his FOURTH wife Sherri was giving him shit about his gambling addiction. It should be noted that Sherri was later arrested after pleaded guilty to money laundering and went to prison before their 2010 divorce. She also allegedly tried to stab him with a steak knife. YIKES.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
