Baker & Taylor
A profile of controversial professional golf player John Daly describes his off-the-green personal life, including his disadvantaged youth, fight with alcoholism, multiple marriages, and disturbing rages.

Blackwell North Amer
Here is the whole, incredible-but-true story of life on the edge with pro golf's bad boy. Part rogue, part ruffian, part artist, part magician, he has been compared to everyone from Nicklaus to Palmer to Sneed. His skill is awesome and his concentration frightening.
He is a complicated man, one with a troubled past - and a brilliant future. In 1991 John Daly surged into the headlines with his breathtaking win of the PGA Championship, and his 1995 win at the British Open confirmed his stardom.
But his triumphs on the green have almost been overshadowed by his personal life. Always outdoing himself, even off the green, Daly has been arrested, walked off the course, been thrown off the PGA Tour, shaved his head, wrecked his own house in a rage, made controversial statements to the press, eventually discovered sobriety, married for a third time, and has even been attacked by a rival's father. And all this before he turned 30.
