John Daly Steps Up To The Tee Box For Tiger Woods


Since everyone who is interested already knows all of the details, I will spare you them, but the important thing is that finally, the one person from the golf world who could shed some light on how we should treat the “Tiger Woods Situation” has spoken up:  John Daly.

Daly, in Sydney preparing for his appearance in the Australian Open, made known his concern for Tiger but insists that he doesn’t care about what occurred. And if anyone knows what it is like to have your personal life splashed all over the gossip pages, it’s John Daly.

“I don’t really care what happened between Tiger and … whatever happened. I’m just glad he’s OK. We need him, probably more than anybody on the tour, to keep things going, the way the economy is.”

“Tiger’s the biggest asset the tour’s had in a long, long time,” he said. “Whatever happened, as long as he’s OK that’s all that matters. Golf needs him badly … no doubt.”

Although I agree with him to a certain extent – Tiger Woods is immensely important to the overall health of the Tour – and despite Daly’s assertion that he doesn’t care about what happened, a lot of people are interested in finding out exactly what occurred that night. So, like it or not, Tiger Woods stories will continue to make their way around the tubes at least until, whether it is fair or not, Woods fully addresses what happened.

One good thing, though – at least until the situation fully plays itself out, we’ll have The Daily Telegraph documenting the best Tiger Woods crash jokes – so we got that going for us, which is good.

We don’t need the facts – we just need Tiger Woods, says John Daly [The Guardian]
