Early Life
John Daly was born in the city of Carmichael, California, back in 1966. But it wasn’t until his family moved to Arkansas that he started playing golf, when he was just 4 years old. His family moved around a lot when he was a kid.

Professional Volatility
Part of what made Daly famous among all fans was his unpredictable play. He could play exceptionally well one day, while playing absolutely terrible the next day. To perfectly illustrate this, take what happened at the Bay Hill Invitational back in 1998.

Personal Volatility
Daly’s personal life has been on full display in the media ever since he turned professional. One of his most well known personal stories happened in June 2007. Daly and his fourth wife got into a heated argument at a restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee during one of his tournaments.

Then there was the gambling. Daly had a reputation as a reckless gambler. He admitted that gambling addiction nearly ruined his life. One famous gambling story didn’t have anything to do with him losing, but actually winning!

Earning power
So how much money did Daly make? According to the PGA Tour, Daly has earned roughly $10.2 million dollars in his more than 25 years as a professional golfer. Then there are the millions of dollars he’s made with endorsement deals and media work.

The Rush
Everything changed for John when he had one of the biggest wins of his life in 1991 at the PGA Championship. The ironic thing was, he wasn’t even supposed to have played in the tournament. He was the ninth alternate!

Amex Championship Rush
It was simply the action of gambling that was more alluring than the actual result. Daly only wanted the adrenaline and he didn’t care about winning the money. He simply loved the action.

Gambling Totals
All the millions Daly lost were done in a span of 17 years. From 1991 to 2007, Daly lost on average $3.2 million a year. How did he know so much about his losses?

Gambling, drinking and Daly’s obsession with Diet Coke were the constant topics in the media. Daly claims that at one point he drank over 500 gallons of Diet Coke a year! He used to drink anywhere from 12-20 Diet Cokes per day.

But where’s Daly now today? He’s still playing golf, and he still gets paid to do appearances. And he also sells his own memorabilia himself out of his tour bus all around the country!

    Doesn't Daly know Aspartame is a know carcinogen?? I'm not surprised he got bladder cancer. That artificial sweetener should never have been released to the public. I knew it was a carcinogen about 25 years ago.
