Daly Disqualified at Golf Classic
Aug. 01, 1998
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) _ John Daly, renowned for his tantrums, had another outburst at the St. Jude Classic on Saturday.
Daly was 3-under-par on the front nine, before double-bogeying three holes on the back side, including the last two. He walked off the course without signing a scorecard and was disqualified.
Daly pulled a 5-iron shot out of bounds at the par-4 17th hole, took a drop, and hit the same club over the green _ then broke the club.
On No. 18 Daly hit his drive into the rough near the lake left of the fairway, hacked out and took his third double bogey of the round, finishing with 74.
He exchanged scorecards with Loren Roberts, then walked past the scorers' tent and away from the course without stopping to talk to anyone.
