Daly reveals apparent suspension
on January 7, 2009 by Administrator
It will come as no real surprise to golf fans that controversial player, John Daly, has created more drama by revealing that he is currently serving a ban from the PGA Tour for inappropriate behaviour.
Although the PGA Tour has remained firm in its policy not to talk about any sanctions or bans imposed upon individuals, the player himself has stated that he has been banned for a total of six months for behaving in a manner which brings the image of the sport into disrepute.
He revealed that he had chosen to speak about the ban in order to remain truthful to his fans and the tournament organisers who may be affected by his absence. The player has not been present on the Tour since October of last year and he has now revealed that he is feeling “the lowest” he has ever been.
It is thought that Daly’s suspension has resulted from four incidents which occurred during the latter stages of last year. One such incident saw police officers in North Carolina take the player into custody after he was found drunk outside a restaurant.
Daly is no stranger to controversy but Bud Martin, his agent, believes that he now has the potential to turn over a new leaf. Martin stated that Daly’s New Year’s resolution is to “make positive things happen on the golf course”.
John Daly has stated that he remains unsure as to when the suspension will end but he is hopeful that the end date will be around May.
