My Life in and out of the Rough
The Truth Behind All That Bull**** You Think You Know About Me
Add to Wish List
Ever since his astonishing victory in the 1991 PGA
Championship, John Daly, known affectionately on the PGA
Tour as "Big 'Un," has enthralled fans with his big drives,
bigger personality, and "Grip It and Rip It" approach to
golf -- and to life.
Long John, usually seen with a Marlboro Light dangling from
his lip, is the unchained, unpredictable, unapologetic bad
boy of professional golf. "The only rules I follow," JD
likes to say, "are the Rules of Golf."
Daly's play-it-as-it-lays approach drives My Life in and out
of the Rough, a thrillingly -- and sometimes shockingly --
candid memoir of a larger-than-life athlete battling
assorted addictions (alcohol, gambling, chocolate, sex), his
weight, and, perhaps worst of all, divorce lawyers. (He's
been married four times.)
A two-time major winner before he turned thirty, John Daly
is one of the most popular athletes in the world. Taking
readers with him off the fairway and into his $1.5-million
motor home for a rollicking ride through his life -- an
ever-churning world of booze, burgers, casinos, country
music, and breathtaking moonshots -- Daly reveals how a
down-home Everyman from Arkansas managed to rise to the peak
of the golf world, escape from the depths of abject
depression, and, finally, take control of his life.
Well, sort of.
