British Open Update: John Daly pulls a Michelle Wie
Well, my initial instinct was right: John Daly couldn’t really be leading the British Open. I mean, come on! Thus, I kept refreshing my computer, wondering when the jig would be up.
And there he is, at 2-over-par through 17, having given seven strokes back to the field in five holes.
That’s a run that would make Michelle Wie proud. I’m guessing he ran out of cigarettes after holing out on the par-4 11th for eagle, which gave him the tournament lead at 5-under-par.
Dump Truck followed that up with:
*A double bogey 6 on No. 12
*A par 3 on No. 13
*A triple bogey 8 on No. 14
*A bogey 5 on No. 15
*A bogey 4 on No. 16
There’s no sign that there are any breaks on this train wreck.
This drop was so sudden, I can’t even remember the headline PGA.com had on its front page touting Daly’s lead. The web site has put back the picture of Paul McGinley, who is still the clubhouse leader at 4-under.
Thanks for the memories, John.

Your instinct was right;Daly was leading after
11 holes @ -5 under....
Leading a tournament after 72 holes is the goal.
The bleeding has stopped @ +3 ...
Big John knows he capable of going 5 under on this course so tomorrow should prove to be a grand day for Daly. Tee time 7:36 a.m.
Erin go bragh.

So let's set the record straight. John Daly never pulls a "Michelle Wie." Wie pulls "Dalys" from time to time, and Daly, of course, pulls JDs out of his hat like dandruff.
