Skins Game Despite Being Defending Champ
THE DALY SHOW: The Orange County Register's Mark Whicker said of Daly, "He's thrown away millions of dollars. He's ruined lives, yet the people go see him, he gets book contracts and he's a folk hero" ("Jim Rome Is Burning," ESPN, 3/12). The Denver Post's Woody Paige said tournament sponsors share some of the blame. Paige: "They keep bringing him in, giving him exemptions." ESPN's Kevin Blackistone added, "This is the way he's been surviving the last dozen or so tournaments, for the most part. He doesn't get in by qualifying. He gets in because tournament sponsors want him there because he attracts the crowds. ... People have been profiting off this guy's demise for a number of years now" ("Around The Horn," ESPN, 3/12). However, ESPN's Tony Kornheiser: "I thought Butch Harmon pretty cavalierly threw John Daly under the bus. They had maybe three sessions together" ("PTI," ESPN, 3/12).
