VINE: John Daly whacks four balls into Lake Michigan, his club follows, kid fishes it out

Ah, John Daly.

You're the gift that keeps on giving

The most colourful man in golf (literally and figuratively) can always be relied on to do something spectacular.

Or at least wear something spectacular. Or smoke something spectacular [let's leave it there, shall we? - SportsJOE lawyer].

But even by his standards this is pretty special.

Daly was a respectable one over par for his opening round of the US PGA on Thursday and was even par after six holes of his second round on Friday.

Then came the meltdown.

On the par three seventh Daly hit a 10 (TEN) including FOUR balls into Lake Michigan.

Perhaps unsurprisingly his club then followed his golf balls into the drink.

It's hard not to have some sympathy for Daly.

Let he who has not hit four golf balls in a row into the water cast the first five iron (into the water).

Unsurprisingly Twitter reacted with glee...

Thankfully a resourceful youngster (albeit one with access to a speedboat) was on hand to fish the club out of the water and get himself a memento.
