A READER POINTED ME to this Christmas Eve story posted at FOX Sports Down Under.
“John Daly may play like the world's 734th best golfer, but in the popularity stakes the Wild Thing is still on a par with Tiger Woods,” wrote Iain Payten.
Can that really be true? I know Daly is popular, but I don’t see him as Tiger’s equal. Yet JD was worth at least $3 mil during his recent golf jaunt to the Southern Hemisphere, according to the article.
“Figures obtained by The Daily Telegraph show Daly's month-long trip delivered publicity and media exposure for Australian golf to the value of $3 million, and quite possibly in excess of that.”
For Daly, having a PGA Tour card appears to be irrelevant.
