Publisher's Summary

Ever since his astonishing victory in the 1991 PGA Championship, John Daly has enthralled fans with his big drives, bigger personality, and "Grip It and Rip It" approach to golf - and to life. Usually seen with a Marlboro Light dangling from his lip, John is the unchained, unpredictable, unapologetic bad boy of professional golf. "The only rules I follow", JD likes to say, "are the Rules of Golf." 

My Life in and out of the Rough is a thrillingly - and sometimes shockingly - candid memoir of a larger-than-life athlete battling assorted addictions (alcohol, gambling, chocolate, sex), his weight, and, perhaps worst of all, divorce lawyers. (He's been married four times.) 

A two-time major winner before he turned 30, John Daly is one of the most popular athletes in the world. Taking listeners with him off the fairway and into his $1.5-million motor home for a rollicking ride through his life - an ever-churning world of booze, burgers, casinos, country music, and breathtaking moonshots - Daly reveals how a down-home Everyman from Arkansas managed to rise to the peak of the golf world, escape from the depths of abject depression, and, finally, take control of his life. 

Well, sort of.
