While I was listening to the Dan Patrick Show this morning, he had an interesting poll that I wanted to hit on. The poll question was along the lines of who would be a better story? Tiger Woods in contention on Sunday or John Daly in contention on Sunday.
Dan interviewed David Feherty and Jack Nicklaus and they both had different answers. I personally think John Daly would be a better story. I also think more people would root for John Daly. I think Daly would be a better story for a couple reasons. First, Daly has done nothing in golf in over 10 years. And over those 10 years, John Daly’s life has been a complete train wreck. Second, more people are on his side and relate to John Daly more. I don’t know if John has more fans, but certainly Tiger has lost many fans over the last 8 months and John has a tremendous following.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge Tiger Woods fan and I still want him to win. But for the sake of the poll, I still think John Daly would trump Tiger for a better story.
