John Daly Shoots 13 On No. 4 At John Deere Classic

John Daly is the every-man's golfer, the kind of player an amateur looks up to and thinks, "I can be that." And on Friday at the John Deere Classic, Daly, who's known for the occasional blow-up hole, carded a 13 on the par four fourth, getting himself into so much trouble off the tee that it took 10 more shots to find the green. He two-putted, then, after forgetting what his score was, told a nearby reporter he thought he'd finished with an 18, setting off a small Twitter firestorm of jokes.

Instead, Daly shot a 13, including multiple penalty strokes and a hack-fest in the right rough. Here's what his 13 looked like on the PGA Tour's Shot Tracker.

Note that he was so far off the grid that his eighth shot went from a "native area" to "unknown."

While there's no video to use to walk through Daly's hilarious adventure, this is what happened. Daly's tee shot sailed way right, ending up in no-man's land in the right rough. In an impossible position, Daly took a couple wacks at the ball, advancing it just a few feet each time. In his own words, he said he took a couple unplayable lies before finally getting to a spot where he could advance the ball. From there, he promptly sent his shot into a greenside bunker. He then blasted out and, as he put it, "“Two-putted. Twenty-footer for 12.”

If there's any consolation it's that Kevin Na's 16 early this year, in which he even hit himself with his own ball, was still a worse hole. But this is John Daly and we love him and the entertainment he provides. You can't help but chuckle and feel sorry for him.
