John Daly has never been one to hide his emotions, and what happened on Sunday was no exception. Daly was playing the final round of the Champions Tour’s Allianz Championship in Boca Raton, Florida, when he suddenly withdrew from the event after making back-to-back bogeys and tossing his putter in the drink.
Starting his round several hours before the leaders, Daly was struggling with some back issues and not playing great golf. After back-to-back bogeys at 6 and 7, Daly decided he had had enough, withdrawing and citing a problem with his Sciatic Nerve. Before he left the course though, he left Broken Sound and the fans a little present to remember him by.
Visibly frustrated, Daly threw his putter into the lake behind the 7th green, adding one more to the list of blowups and club tosses in his long career. Daly immediately left the course without speaking, so nobody knows the motivation behind the putter toss.
