John Daly has been branded a “flamin’ gallah” by officials and turfed out of the Aussie Open. Daly kicked off his bad behaviour when he played the wrong ball from a bunker on 10 and then hit every ball he had into the water on 11.
Without a ball to his name, Daly then took his son, told his partners “I’m off” and headed back to the Caravan Park at Yabbey Creek.
"When u run out of balls u run out of balls. yes I shook my players partners hands & signed my card w/rules official," Daly tweeted after.
Tournament director Alf Stewart said he will never again be welcome at the Australian Open equating Daly to a hoodlum from Mangrove River. "Stone the crows. It's very disappointing, obviously, for the tournament, the surf club (and) certainly unprofessional and strike me roan I'm extremely bitter and disappointed that he's treated this championship this way," Mr Stewart said.
"We can't fine him because … he's not a member of ours, but we want it dealt with properly. We might get Heath Braxton or one of Jake’s crew to take him down."
