    John Daly tells TV crew he's "done with golf."

    It would be nice to think that sponsors would stop giving him exemptions if he feels this way.

    But they'll probably claim that they can't help themselves, especially with Tiger sitting out until further notice.

    He "quit" while filming his new show for the Golf Channel. Hmmm...

    Fat, drunk, stupid and retired is no way to go through life, young man.

    With his new thumb stomach, he's only half the man he used to be.

    Can't speak for the other two attributes.

    I know. I thought I was retired for two seasons, too.

    I'd say stupid is still a slam dunk.

    OK, now Daly says he's not fat, drunk and stupid and retired. Just not-so-fat, drunk and stupid and broke.

    According to Golf Digest (Feb. edition), Daly made $4.7 million in off-course income last year. Must be a lot of alimony and markers to casinos.
