A golfer other than ME has made a 12 on a par 4!!! And breathe! The PGA veteran shot a 19-over-par 90 in the second round of the PGA Tour Valspar Championship on Last friday.
Turns out Daly had an adventurous day at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor. Daly carded a bogey or worse on half of the 18 holes he played en route to the worst round of his professional career.
Daly’s first three shots on that hole found the water, and by the time he finally found the bottom of the cup, he had taken an unbelievable 12 shots… Anybody else smiling a little? Seems these pros are human after all. Makes my 9 on a par 3 this week a little more comforting anyway.
Daly is known for having a great sense of humor, and it didn’t leave his side last Friday as he poked fun at his struggles on the 16th hole. Despite Daly’s erratic play, he continues to get invites to PGA Tour events, why? Largely because of the buzz he generates, but seriously 90? I’ll play on the tour and make sure I’m fun to watch?…Please?
He’s still a big-name golfer, and fans like to watch him since he is such an unpredictable person but come on! He hasn’t won a PGA tournament since taking the Buick Invitational in 2004, and his performance at the Valspar Championship doesn’t inspire confidence that he can break the decade-long drought any time soon.
