I’ve heard worse. Not much else to say about this one really.
Long drive phenom Jamie Sadlowski will tee it up this afternoon at the Albertson’s Boise Open in his first ever Nationwide Tour start.
Sadlowski played in a 9-hole charity skins match on Monday with John Daly. While he lost the match to Daly 7 to 2 (shooting even par), he did manage to drive a 359-yard par-4 with a 14* hybrid, which reportedly left Daly “flabbergasted”.
Sadlowski’s stated goal is to try to beat Jason Zuback’s record of 5 Re/Max long drive titles before transitioning into competitive golf. He’ll have a shot at winning his 3rd title on Nov 4th in Nevada.
John Daly, that’s who. A 3rd round 67 has put him 3 off the lead going into Sunday.
Just when many golf fans were thinking that Daly was done, the 2-time major champion with eye searing clothing comes out and shows that he can still play with the best. It’s been a long time since we saw John Daly on a weekend leaderboard, and the real trick is whether or not he can perform like this consistently. But it’s certainly not a bad start.
Check out Daly’s post-round interview after the break.
Playboy recently published an piece on John Daly. (I probably wouldn’t click on the link at work). It paints an interesting, if not entirely flattering portrait. In the article, Daly talks about his relationship with girlfriend, Ana Cladakis (he claims to either be a nympho or close to it), his monthly expenses (a mere $43k down from $120k), and probably most notably, his problems with gambling and other addictions.
Daly has been through some significant highs and lows in his life, most notably due to his gambling. Fortunately for him, Cladakis seems to have put the kibosh on it, because “[she] hates it”. Of course it probably helps that he doesn’t have millions of dollars to blow through right now either.
Just a bit of self-promotion this evening… I happened to notice some hits in my server logs coming from John Daly’s MySpace page this afternoon. Lo and behold, when I headed over there I found my posts and tweets from last week’s Viking Classic featured prominently. I personally thought it was pretty cool. Maybe at next tournament that we’re both attending, John will be willing to give me a 5 minute interview. Hint hint…
