John Daly is probably one of my favorite golfers of all time. His swing is somethin’ If you read his book, “Grip It and Rip It”, you will find that he does a lot of things that you don’t expect him to.
For example, John Daly does have one of the longest swings ever BUT he does has one of the best rhythms in golf. You don’t realize how great his rhythm is because all you are focusing on is his long swing and his distance. But look at his swing carefully and you will see a little Freddy Couples in him.
Even, Tiger’s previous Coach Butch Harmon, quotes John Daly in his book, Four Cornerstones of Winning Golf (By the way, THIS book, is way too cool…).
I used to try to copy his swing during one of my golf years and was pretty successful at it. I remember when I would read his book over and over again until couple pages decided to take lives of its own and take off somewhere in my bedroom…
Anyways, check it out. You should also read his book from couple years ago where he writes about his life but we will get to that so…

P.S. The weirdest thing is that I live in San Francisco right next to John Daly Blvd., right next to Daly City! It must be a coincidence that he’s among my favorites. I mean, of all the places you can live in, I am living next to John Daly Blvd and Daly City?!? John should really move here.
