John Daly -- Finally Crashes After Killer Round

7/15/2010 5:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John Daly literally put every ounce of energy into his unbelievably dominant first round performance at the British Open today ... cause right when he got home, dude immediately passed the hell out.

TMZ spoke with Daly's girlfriend who told us after the round ... she ran out to pick up some dinner ... and returned to find Daly racked out on the couch ... catching some well deserved shut eye.

We're told Daly -- who's battled drug and alcohol abuse throughout his career -- did have a Bloody Mary before he played this morning ... but it was of the virgin variety. He went on to play one of the best rounds of his life ... tied for third place ... one stroke ahead of Tiger Woods.

Daly will be up in just a few hours to play round two -- we'll see if the power nap will help out his game.

I'd like to see Daly win the British Open again.

I hope anybody but Cheatah Woods wins.

after the win at the british open in '95 i think he rented a house outside of russellville (as i live a ways up the interstate) to have a party. even though the neighbors were far between he still caused a commotion.

the owner shows up and throws a fit, even though the house was just around $65,000 or so. john asked how much for the house, gets a price and writes the guy a check on the spot.

party on garf ...................

I watched him play early this AM (2am PST) and he was kicking butt. He should have shot 9 or 10 under but had a couple of putts lip out for birdie. He looks like he is swinging really good. Hope he can keep it together!! GO JOHN!!!

Unbelievably dominant?!

I like Daly, but the 21 yr old kid who shot a 63 was unbelievably dominant....

Daly, who shot a 66, is 3 shots behind him.

Good going John, keep it up, everyone is rooting for you! You are a breath of fresh air out there, great to see you back on the course. You may have problems, but was always up front and honest about them and never tried to hide them or be something you are not (like someone named Tiger, double life, lying cheating creep). Love the outfit, keep them coming!

He really loves the British Open and those fans from there.
If he can hang around and make the cut it would be great.
