John Daly turns his attention to the Country Club of Jackson for this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.
Daly is making the opposite travel plans than many TOUR pros this week. After playing in the World Celebrity Pro-Am, October 24th-26th, he now returns to the States. He is 7-for-9 at this event, but hasn't finished any better than T36, which came back in 1999. Daly has placed outside the top 50 in each of his last 11 PGA TOUR starts and will deal with a new course this week. Gamers should look elsewhere when selecting their fantasy squads. Nov 3 - 10:31 PM

John Daly enters the RBC Canadian Open ranked 204th in the FedExCup standings.

It looks like another lost year for JD on the PGA TOUR. While he's shown no commitment to PGA TOUR Q School in previous seasons, he has dropped down to play the occasional Web.com Tour event. It will be interesting to see if he can crack the top 200 in the FEC standings to earn a spot in the Web.com Tour Finals. An even larger question would be if he actually plays the Finals should he qualify.

John Daly has been added to the published field of this week's Travelers Championship.

He started the week as the fifth alternate, but gained entry when Neal Lancaster withdrew. Daly has cashed in just three of eight starts, none going for a top 30, and he's outside the top 200 in both FedExCup points and earnings. He's only 22-and-a-half months from turning 50. What a birthday party that will probably be, but the real fun could be realized in the kind of impact he'd have on the Champions Tour.

The second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic was suspended for inclement weather at 2:15 p.m. CT.

Only 13 minutes of play were possible in between the restart and this latest delay, which is the third already of the tournament. John Daly was one of the last to receive a sponsor exemption and he's capitalized. With today's 3-under-par 34-33=67, he's 1-under 139 and will make the cut. He buried six birdies today, including a 13-yarder from the fringe at the par-3 11th hole, his second of the walk. The big fella also holed conversions of 26'9" and 12'10" at Nos. 3 and 6, but his longest on a green dropped for bogey from 35'1" at the par-4 first.

John Daly has been added to the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Daly received a sponsor exemption to compete. He cashed his first paycheck in a non-major at TPC Southwind in 1989. That coincided with the first year that the course hosted this event. This will mark his 23rd appearance. He's T201 in FedExCup points this season with two paydays in seven starts. He's also 1-for-1 on the Web.com Tour where he's supplemented his income infrequently since 2010.

John Daly has been added to the published field of this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Daly was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Scott Verplank withdrew today. Relegated to Past Champion status again this season, Daly is just 2-for-6 with no top 30s. The big fella sits T200 in FedExCup points.

John Daly concluded his week at the South Georgia Classic with a final-round 13-over-par 48-37=85.

The good news is that JD gave it a good effort to make the cut, but once out of contention he fell fast. A third-round 82 meant that he played as a solo on Sunday, which obviously did not keep his attention. He swallowed a bogey, four double bogeys and a triple bogey on his outward nine, then settled down for eight pars and a bogey on the back. In March he signed a career-high 90 at the Valspar Championship, so he isn't exactly trending towards anything good.

John Daly received a sponsor exemption into the RBC Heritage.

A bomber off the tee that hits half his fairways on a good day. Not the ideal recipe for success at Harbour Town Golf Links, which traditionally requires precision off the tee. Nonetheless, John Daly is out there as a fan favorite, and will have a good time whether he makes the cut or not.

John Daly went ahead and signed for a 19-over-par 43-47=90 following his second round of the Valspar Championship.

This was vintage. JD went 0-for-8 in birdie opportunities and squared five bogeys, three doubles and a 12 at the par-4 16th hole where he rinsed three tee balls. He posted 22-over 164. Today's score is Daly's highest on the PGA TOUR. It eclipses the 89 that he carded in the second round of the 2008 Open Championship. The 90 is the highest aggregate on the circuit since Zack Miller's 92 in the second round at Mayakoba in 2012. When Daly penciled in an 18 on the par-5 sixth hole in the final round at Bay Hill in 1998, he still managed an 85 and beat two others that also completed 72 holes. That won't be the case today as no one was within 11 swings of him when he walked off Copperhead.

John Daly received a sponsor exemption into the Valspar Championship.

Though the fan favorite holds only Past Champion status, he has made his way into four event in 2013-14. Daly has made half of his cuts, including a T49 in Puerto Rico last week. He's teed it up eight times on the Copperhead Course, owning just as many withdrawals as paychecks, with two apiece. A T51 in 2012 stands as his best effort.

John Daly concluded the Sony Open in Hawaii with an even-par 37-33=70 to post 7-under 273, good for a share of 32nd place worth $30,986.67 and 36.50 FedExCup points.

Given that he irritated his right elbow during a wild 73 in the second round -- he had surgery on the joint last July -- and then chased it with a 64 on Saturday, the result is as good as expected for the polarizing pro. It's his best finish on the PGA TOUR since the 2012 PGA Championship. The only problem is that he needed no worse than a solo second to retain status. (The same finish was required for conditional status as only FedExCup points were applicable.) Instead, he fell short of meeting the terms of his Non-exempt Medical Extension by $520,953. Daly was 223.50 FedExCup points below the minimum required for conditional status. He'll head to the Humana Challenge on a sponsor exemption but does so with a demotion in status as he'll play out of the Past Champion category for the remainder of the season.

John Daly joined Will Wilcox with the lowest round of the day in the third round of the Sony Open, spinning a 6-under-par 32-32=64.

Hopefully the serious gamers in the audience didn't go up against a sentimental Daly fan in the Yahoo! format, or they would have been chewed up by a 20-point buzz saw. Beginning his afternoon on the back nine, JD circled three birdies without a bogey before making the turn. The front nine saw him add four birdies to just one bogey. After opening with a 66 and following that up with a 73, there's no telling what the final round has in store. He leads the field in putting average, with a 1.571 clip, and ranks first in strokes gained, picking up 2.105 on the field for the week. Lest we forget, his game isn't just about bombing it off the tee. He enters the finale tied for 18th at 7-under 203.
Jan 11 - 8:01 PM

John Daly lit up Waialae Country Club for a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Perhaps he's inspired by the fact that he loses his shred of status on the PGA TOUR (via a medical extension) if he doesn't finish worse than solo second. Whatever the case, this was vintage JD. He even split nine (of 14) fairways en route to 15 greens in regulation. Among his quintet of birdies were conversions of 10'7" and 15'3" at hole 8 and 15, respectively. He last went as low as 66 in the second round of the Byron Nelson last May, but Daly hadn't carded an aggregate this deep in a first round on the PGA TOUR since the 2010 Shriners.
Jan 9 - 6:02 PM

Unless he withdraws prior to his opening round of this week's Sony Open in Hawaii, John Daly will be making the final start on his Non-exempt Medical Extension.

In fact, he was given only one start to bank $551,940 or 351 FedExCup points and earn a promotion to the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season. Daly had conditional status in 2013 and underwent surgery on his right elbow in July. He needs no worse than a solo second worth $604,800 to meet the terms. (A solo second awards 300 FedExCup points, so the shorter route to the promotion is via earnings.) A three-way T2 ($418,133.33) or solo third ($380,800) would secure conditional status again. Short of the secondary goal, he'll tumble into the Past Champion category. He's 8-for-10 at Waialae but has yet to crack a top 25. He played 20 times worldwide in 2013 and failed to log a top 40.

John Daly enjoyed a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68 for his opening round of the BMW Masters.

His commitment to this tournament in Shanghai, China slipped under our noses. Daly has been sidelined since early July after having surgery on his right elbow. He had conditional status in 2013, so he was given a Non-exempt Medical Extension for 2013-14 affording him one start to earn $551,940 or 351 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category. When he'll burn that start remains unknown, but don't rule anything out after today's performance at Lake Malaren. He circled two of his four birdies on par 5s and signed his card with the early clubhouse lead.
