John Daly has always been an interesting character to me. I just want him to sober the fuck up and golf – and I don’t even FOLLOW golf, let alone actually WATCH it. But, did I happen to mention that John Daly has always been an interesting character to me?
Maybe it’s the pants. I do like ’em, ‘cuz I’d wear ’em golfing ….. if I golfed.
Sooo – of course, this caught my attention.
Phil Mikelson left the tournament to be with his wife, Amy, following a diagnosis of breast cancer and upcoming “major surgery.” Thusly,
John Daly wore bright pink trousers during Sunday’s final round of the BMW PGA Championship in a gesture of support for Phil Mickelson’s wife after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Amy Mickelson was diagnosed last week with the disease and received a message of support on Friday from Darren Clarke, who lost his wife to breast cancer in 2006.
“I had a pair, so I figured I’d do that for her today. I thought it would be a good gesture,” Daly said of his trousers. “I know Phil very well and I know Amy. I’ve known them for a long time – we’ve played the Tour together. She’s a great lady. She has always been a sweetheart to everybody.”
My friend, Diane, died in April of 2002; she was 56. Her husband, Bob, had done the same thing in taking on the role of caregiver although he was a business executive with Lucent. Like the Mikelsons, Bob & Diane had been sweethearts from way back. In fact, the only time Diane & Bob weren’t a couple was the first 16 years of their lives. They were together 40 years.
All my best to Amy Mickelson. And Phil, join a men’s support group. Bob did and he was NOT the support group kind. However, he swore by it following his first meeting and went religiously. It helped him cope.
