John Daly is a hyperbole machine and this sit-down interview with Graham Bensinger is no different. 

Daly talks about a variety of things with Bensinger but chief among them is how much money he lost gambling.

"I thought it might have been $20-$25 (million) but I had no idea it was $55-$57 million," said Daly.

That is a lot of money. Wow!

I don't know how much Daly has made off the course (I imagine it's more than $55 million-$57 million) but he has only accumulated around $10 million on it so needless to say the gambling losses crippled him quite a bit financially.
