John Daly wonders why treadmills don’t have ashtrays, beer holders

It's not that John Daly doesn't want to exercise so much that he wants to light up while he's working out.

In an interview on WGN-TV, Daly, who was promoting his line of liquors, was asked if any guys on the PGA Tour are accessible figures. The two-time major winner didn't seem to think so.

"Most of the guys wear hats, most of them work out every day," said the 49-year-old. "I wish I could (work out), but I just don't want to. They won't let me smoke in the gym."

The interviewer plays along, bantering with Daly about this travesty.

"What is wrong," Daly asks, "with having a treadmill with an ashtray and a beer holder?"

That sounds like a money-making idea. John Daly could be golf's George Foreman.
