9780061010729: John Daly: Wild Thing

Part rogue, part ruffian, part artist, part magician, golfer John Daly has been compared to everyone from Jack Nicklaus to Sam Sneed. His skill is awesome and his concentration frightening. This book presents the rollicking, tempestuous, and ultimately heartwarming story of how a chubby kids from a penniless family taught the world, and the sport he loved, to take him on his own terms. of photos.

From Publishers Weekly:

Daly, raised in a rootless family that moved from California to Arkansas to Missouri, can hit a golf ball farther than anyone else in the game, and he cultivates a blue-collar persona that endears him to the public, if not to officials or his fellow players. He burst into the pro spotlight in 1991 at the age of 24 by winning the PGA championship, and three years later signed a $30 million contract with Wilson Sporting Goods, although his links career was spotty and he had endured a suspension and an alcohol rehab program. But he drew crowds and so got away with much that might have spelled trouble for a less popular figure. In 1995, he won the British Open and, in the view of Wartman (Playing Through), achieved a mature serenity. But readers who have followed Daly's career will wonder whether the author's characterization of him early in the book as "magnificently talented and endlessly fallible" is not still accurate.
