Pounds or dollars, Daly gets zapped again

John Daly has officially experienced unintended, uncomfortable payroll deductions on both sides of the Atlantic.

The European Tour confirmed Thursday that the troubled two-time major championship winner was fined an undisclosed amount for his behavior last week at the European Tour’s Austrian Open outside Vienna.

During the second round, Daly took what was deemed to be an improper drop, and when questioned about it by a rules official, got angry, argued his point, threw a club in the lake and stormed off.

He was quite likely going to miss the cut anyway.

Last year, after getting his disciplinary jacket from the PGA Tour as part of discovery in a pending lawsuit, the Jacksonville, Fla., paper reported he had been fined $100,000 for various offenses on the U.S. tour.

The PGA Tour does not announce fines, but can nonetheless still fine Daly for any actions he would take overseas, because he is still a member of the tour.

The European Tour fined Daly for “breaching the European Tour’s code of behavior,” a tour press official confirmed to CBSSports.com on Thursday.

With almost no status left in the States, Daly is playing this week in the EuroTour's Dunhill Links event at St. Andrews.

@bogey533: Of course Daley can be honest and tell us everything; he has no reputation to protect, and hence nothing to lose.

Mr. Ellings write negative pieces because it's easier than writing about good, always has been and always will be, mostly beacuse that's what the public enjoys reading about, especially in times such as these, it tends to make (many) people feel better about themselves. Me? If I'm having a low self-esteem day I just go to Walmart, works like a charm :)

I myself am a P.G.A. Class A Golf Professional since 1997. Seems like these posts are about Ellings constant negative articles and J.D's golf weight and shirt sales. Fact is if you ask Daly a question no matter how controversly it is he will answer. Ask yourself this why do people love Lefty and dislike Tiger?  Daly can still play at a high level unfortunately the game is huge mentally and here is were Daly has problems. I still enjoy watching him play and is still capable of winning as evident in the Canadian open. Read his books I think you will agree he tells the truth. If you ever do see him playing a practice round or practicing ask J.D. about his wife, not sure what number she was, why the drying machine wasnt working as well as it should? Unfortunately she wasnt aware the machine HAD a lint tray and needed to be emptied. Hes still very entertaining in a not so perfect world.

Yet again Elling writes a negative article.  Where is the feel good story about Bill Haas, how about Luke Donald's great season?  No, it's easier to bash Tiger and Daly.  


Now I'm not defending Daly's actions, nor Tiger's struggles; for crying out loud Steve write something positive!

halfdolla23, do you watch golf? Check out the photo of Daly taken at the tournament where this latest incident occurred and you'll see he's obviously putting the weight back on. And the shirts will be from years ago, just like he was doing at the Masters a few years back when he didn't qualify to play. I didn't make up the stuff about selling shirts outside the main entrance, he actually did that.

Simply put, Daly is not relevant. He is and has been no longer a "draw". The free invites are basically gone so he will thankfully fade off into the sunset. I always laughed about the so called "blue collar" thing. Golf is, and always has been, a white collar sport.

Elling has to be down on someone and since Tiger's not available, Daly will get his come-uppance.  Er, did I just type that?

Elling knows nothing about the rules of golf.  John Daly, after he hit his next shot under a TV tower, looked for an official. Of course, there wasn't one present. He next called over his playing companions to ask where he should drop. Once, Jimenes told him that he should drop it on that spot, he hit his next shot. Way, and I accent the way, an official came over, while Daly was playing the next shot, and asked him about his drop on the previous hole. I don't blame him for walking off, all of you that do blame him no nothing about the rules of golf, nor how to play the game!
