Daly WD's From Event, Citing Length of Tournament Name
A sign of just how out of shape he's become, troubled golfer John Daly announced late Sunday that he is withdrawing from the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic Hosted By George Lopez after getting winded just trying to say the event's name. "A fan asked where I was playing next, I told him, and then I had to sit down for ten minutes," Daly explained during a strange Sunday news conference. He urged the Tour to consider shorter titles for their events or at least abbreviations, saying that unless they do something immediately, the only events he'll be able to play in are the FBR Open and Honda Classic.
