Daly was atop the leader board at the British Open through 11 until he played 8 over the rest of the way and eventually missed the cut. He was among the leaders at Pinehurst No. 2 in the 1999 U.S. Open, where he shot 81-83 on the weekend. And he was the first-round leader at Winged Foot in the ‘97 PGA Championship. By the third round, he threw his driver over the fence.
He didn’t show up at Southern Hills completely in the dark.
Along with playing the slot machines, he jumped in a cart for a quick round on the course at the Cherokee Casino, found he was drawing the club too far inside and made a quick fix that seemed to work. And even if the slots were unkind, he had some luck at the PGA.
Daly was among the few who hit driver on the 18th, the ball landing on a sliver of grass between a bunker and the creek.
“Nothing he does surprises me,” Els said. “This golf course doesn’t even suit him.”
