Las Vegas has never been the best town for John Daly, whose prodigious appetite for gambling has been well chronicled, even by himself. In his autobiography, he claimed to have lost $600,000 in 90 minutes on a $5,000 slot machine at the Wynn Las Vegas one year.
His latest Vegas escapade has nothing to do with gambling other than to note that a man with his erratic history is generally a better bet these days to draw attention to himself for something other than the quality of his golf.
"Daly follows 8-under 63 with epic collapse, falls to last place," the headline in the Las Vegas Review-Journal said on Sunday morning.
In the third round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas on Saturday, Daly ran up a score of 86, according to the accounting firm of PriceWaterhouseCoopers that was brought in to audit a scorecard that beggared belief.
