"He's waiting to play well to love the game, but he needs to love the game and then wait to play well"
Ambition is one thing, love is another. In explaining what he thinks ails John Daly, the former US PGA and Open champion who shot 90 in his company in the second round of the Valspar Championship at Copperhead last Friday, Pádraig Harrington dismissed any notion that the Wild Thing had been a distraction in his own struggle to make the cut.
Making the cut - the top 5 best dressed pros
By Andy Dean
I’m not old enough to remember Walter Hagen or Jimmy Demaret and tragically, Payne Stewart no longer struts the fairways in all his knickerbocker glory. Gone, too, is Ben Hogan - a man with a sense of style even sharper than his swing.
The new millennium has seen some new stars shine brightly. Yet there are some old glories out there who still turn heads. For what it’s worth, here’s my list of the top 5 dressers on tour. They may not be winning majors right now, but they are grand slam champions when it comes to picking out a wardrobe.
Open dairy: Wednesday
The Open champion will pocket £750,000 - exactly the same amount that Padraig Harrington earned last year.
But the changes in the sterling-euro exchange rate have reduced the pay-off for a European player by a hefty margin.
Harrington got €1.1 million last term but if he wins again on Sunday his £750,000 prize will add just €935,628.
That's €170,989 less than last year or enough to buy 34,000 Titleist ProV1 golf balls.
