“I have always rooted for him,” Woods said. “I have always been a John Daly fan and a friend.”
The support just doesn’t come from Woods. Former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy, tied with Daly at 68, said plenty of pros at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational crowded around the TV to watch Daly challenge at the Reno-Tahoe Open. He wound up tied for fifth.
“I’ve never seen more players more excited,” Ogilvy said. “Everyone wants to see him do well.”
“When I get on a run, six, seven, eight weeks in a row, I feel like I have a better chance of playing well,” Daly said. “It’s starting to pay off a little bit.”
Will Daly’s good play continue this weekend? He isn’t worried about it.
“If I walk out of here knowing I played the best I can, that’s all that matters,” he said. “And the way I’m hitting it, I just don’t want to get too up or too down about it.”
