Please Obey Course Rules

With the NFL adopting some new rules recently, I thought it might be time for golf to do the same.

John Daly, to some, is a loveable presence, a prodigal son who has strayed at times, but remains a sympathetic figure worthy of our care. To me, he is none of that. Daly is an utter disappointment, and at this point, a huge, and I mean HUGE black mark on professional golf. In truth, the word “... Read More...
