John Daly throws putter into lake, then WDs from Champions Tour event

February 13, 2017

John Daly has quickly made his mark on the Champions Tour. 

At his first event back in May, Daly rolled in an eagle putt on the 72nd hole then gestured to the crowd for a drink. At last week’s Allianz Championship, Daly reportedly threw his putter into a nearby lake after he withdrew in the final round. According to a Links Magazine report, Daly bowed out of the tournament citing a nerve issue with his back then left the course without talking to the media.

Daly had opened the event 71-75 and carded three bogeys in his first seven holes to start his final round. After the bogey on the 7th, Daly withdrew, then, according to the report, decided he didn’t need his putter any longer and threw it in the lake.
