More troubles for John Daly this week as random testing by the USGA revealed that his beer belly is no longer within USGA limits. "We've been watching John for the last six months," senior technical director Dick Rugge announced Tuesday. "And when our computer spit out his name for gut-testing, we knew we might have a problem."
According to the official report, the MOI [Moment of Inertia] of Daly's stomach is a startling 7350, far above the current limit of 5900. "The closest we'd seen to date came from Mark Calcavecchia," Rugge said, "but even he was just at 5400." Daly also was over the limit for TGZ [Total Gut Size]. When asked for the specific numbers, Rugge explained, "Honestly, we just eyeballed that one."
Neither Daly nor his stomach could be reached for comment.
