Typical oh Hoooters- overserving shows a lack of community caring. Imagine had Daly not passed out- think anyone from Hooters would have gone through the steps to cover the Dram Shop laws?

Two items:

1.) The managers and servers at Hooters need to be held responcible for serving John (anyone) too much.
2.) The PGA Tour needs to set a policy for any substance abuse and stick to it

As a former golf professional, I can only say the tour used to be family oriented. Families stayed together, ate dinner together, the spouses and children used to do things together. The players and their familes have made this small circle into a business rather than a family united. You all need to get back to helping each other. John may be a "lost soul" and "lost cause" but the rest of you need to ask the Mize's, Simpson's, McGowan's, etc. what tour family means as they know what it means to be a part of the "tour family".

John is a super guy with a great heart! He goes out of his way to acknowledge his fans and could use their support now. I am sure he will rebound and be on top again. Good luck John!

This washed-up slop needs to go away. What a waste of a brilliant talent. So many others would give anything to have the chance to play this sport and he's f***ed up every opportunity he's ever been given. It's time for the PGA to turn it's back on this guy once and for all. Next year look for him on one of those celebrity detox programs or Celebrity Fit Club.

What a shame. He's ruining his life and his career. He's getting a bit too old for these antics.

He needs to be kicked off the golf curcuit until he gets clean. The man is screaming for help...but nobody is listening. Where is one's family when this is going on?

sad, sad, sad
