SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — John Daly has reached his boiling point on Friday at the PGA Championship, and one of his misbehaving clubs paid the price with a watery grave in Lake Michigan.
Daly is struggling in the second round at Whistling Straits, taking a septuple-bogey 10 on the par-3 seventh hole. The 1991 PGA champion put three balls into the beach-lake hazard to the right of the 221-yard hole, finally hitting the green with his seventh shot. From there, Daly three-putted to make the 10.
As Daly walked up to the green at the seventh, Daly took out his anger on his club, throwing it into the adjoining Great Lake. Some time later, a boat rolled up to the spot where Daly’s club ended up and a kid fished it out of the water as a trophy.
Daly will have to play the rest of the round with 13 clubs, but the good news is that he probably won’t have to worry about playing the weekend.
