Butch Harmon peeved that John Daly prefers booze to golf
Butch Harmon finally booted John Daly out of his stable of high-profile professional golfers after Daly “made a circus” out of the PODS Championship.
The last straw for Harmon was pulled as Daly was seen carousing behind a Hooters tent during a rain delay. John started his round 3 over-par and ended with a 77. Drinking beer and autographing the derrieres of women obviously fare better during corporate events than when big money and position are on the line.
This isn’t the first time that Daly has made a spectacle of himself. Previous escapades that made headlines included throwing thousands of dollars into slot machines and affirmations of losses upwards of $50 million dollars during a gambling spree lasting twelve years.
Harmon must have known when he accepted Daly into his inner circle that it would be an uphill climb, that a leopard never changes his spots and that it would be up to Harmon, not Daly, to improve upon someone who really doesn’t want help. But, at least “Butchie” (as Tiger Woods calls him) realized his mistake before it further smudged his own reputation.
With big names like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott among his list of credits, Harmon can now pick and choose which golfers he instructs and who is a representation of his skill. Of course, Harmon’s brothers have kidded him in the past saying, “he really isn’t a good instructor, he just knows how to pick clients,” but it’s also evident he also knows how to dump them!
