Ever since his astonishing victory in the 1991 PGA Championship, John Daly, known affectionately on the PGA Tour as ''Big 'Un,'' has enthralled fans with his big drives, bigger personality, and ''Grip It and Rip It'' approach to golf - and to life. Daly's play-it-as-it-lays approach drives My Life in and out of the Rough, 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.

I don't see John Daly as a dynamic character - the truth is, he is what he is, and that's what shows up the first half of the book. The second half doesn't ring true, first of all, because it's lacking all the f-bombs, and second of all, because he's not telling stories. He'll bring back memories of tournaments you've watched and give you some new perspectives. You'll laugh at him, cry for him, and sometimes want to shake him. You may not like him (I do, by the way, more now after having read this) but you can't deny that this guy puts it all out there.

John Daly is one of the most popular professional golfers in the world today

John Daly is one of the most popular professional golfers in the world today. Celebrated for his towering tee shots, Daly has won the PGA's Driving Distance Crown a record-setting eleven times. He was named the 1990 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year and went on to win the PGA Championship the following year and the British Open in 1995. John Daly is a thoroughly self-destructive man. When he becomes upset, and this does not appear to be an infrequent occurrence, he responds by hurting himself as opposed to hurting others.

The Truth Behind All That Bull . You Think You Know About Me. JOHN DALY. My answer is that laying my life out this way, trying to see it as a whole thing instead of a bunch of disconnected memories, helps me get a grip on the present and try to build a future. So I’m writing this book in part to help me understand myself-and get ready for whatever life throws at me down the way. But I’m also writing this book because I believe I owe it to you, my fans. You’ve always been there for me, and I want to strengthen the bond between us.

John is clearly an impulsive guy (food, booze, women, gambling and lastly - golf!) However the ending, with him doing his own Q&A, looks like he only had so much to write about and needed to fill up the last hundread or so pages. Still its recommended for easy, enjoyable reading. marcowatty2000, November 7, 2008. Written by a customer while visiting librarything. 0 0. Customer Q&A.

My Life In and Out of the Rough is the thrillingly—and sometimes shockingly—candid memoir of a larger-than-life athlete battling assorted addictions (alcohol, gambling, chocolate, sex), his weight, and divorce lawyers (having been married four times). Carrying readers off the fairway and into his $1.5-million motor home, Daly takes us on a rollicking ride through his ever-churning world of burgers, booze, casinos, country music, and breathtaking moon shots—and reveals how a down-home Arkansas Everyman rose to the pinnacle of the golf world, escaped from the depths of abject depression, and, ultimately, took control of his life.

Well, sort of . . .

  • Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down; being from Arkansas, John has always been one of those larger than life characters that has done our state proud. This book gives some interesting insight into the life of a professional golfer that golf fans in general will find most interesting.

  • I'm an amateur golfer, having a lot of golfers in my family. I was never a fan of reading any professional golfers biographies, but I chose John Daly because this book looked good. So let me start off by saying this is a GREAT book for anyone who wants a true insight on John Daly. Of course he discusses a lot about the Tour and challenges he's been faced with but he also gives a truthful, clean insight on his life. It's hard to believe the "average joe" only knows one thing about him: he hits the ball long. Read this book and you won't regret it! It's a lot more info than that…

  • Good honesty of his life and struggles, but not well written. Maybe he should have had s ghost writer help with it.

  • John Daly....Legend.

  • Didn't realize this was 10 years old, but an interesting read for golf fans.

  • Anyone who has ever played the game of golf or just watches it will enjoy reading this exciting book. You will find it hard to put down once you start reading it. John Daly is the real deal. Thank you John for a wonderful book you have written.

  • The sports autobiography may be one of the few genres in which the publishing industry has realized strong growth as there is no shortage of new releases concerning the athletes that so many of us admire. Golfer John Daly is the latest to tempt readers with an autobiography. Just after it was issued, it received considerable media attention, mostly due to its admission that the author gambled away, in the course of his career, over 50 to 60 million dollars.

    My Life in and Out of the Rough: The Truth Behind All that Bull**** You Think You Know About Me promises to be a wild and "shocking" ride, but, strangely enough, it isn't as John Daly is one of the few people on this earth whose personality and essence closely correspond with his physical appearance. Simply due to repeated observation, readers will not be surprised to learn that he is impulsive, undisciplined, gluttonous, financially reckless, extremely emotional, friendly, kind, prone to bad habits, and a complete "Razorback Redneck" (in his own words). Golf is the only thing in life that he's ever been really good at, and the links were the only place he felt comfortable during his troubled childhood. We can sum him up by saying that he is the epitome of a southern good old boy who happens to be plagued by, in the vernacular of our day, some serious issues.

    His daily behaviors exemplify that he is not one to idly chat about personal philosophy. Daly follows his mantra and is what he is which means he has little interest in self-improvement. "The Lion," the nickname he most prefers, will smoke, drink beer, and eat at McDonalds until one of the habits kill him. Intentional exercise also is not something to which he can relate. All of this leads us to the one aspect about the "Big `Un" not readily detectable via observation which is his toxic level of masochism.

    John Daly is a thoroughly self-destructive man. When he becomes upset, and this does not appear to be an infrequent occurrence, he responds by hurting himself as opposed to hurting others. He has trashed numerous hotel rooms, and even, after a fight with one of his wives, wrecked his own house. What these damages ended up costing him I cannot fathom.

    It is in this interpersonal area where his masochism is irrefutable. We know that he is perfectly aware of the pathology behind his matrimonial unions as he named one of his chapters, "All My Exes Wear Rolexes," but his cognizance has not altered his behavior. He is ripped off time and again by women who discard him as soon as they have put in the court mandated days for pension and earning vestment.

    All of these blunders should not amount to our being over-sympathetic towards the author as he is an adult who has made his own willful choices. He may be na�ve and ignorant but he is not stupid. These recurring disasters have been inflicted and enabled by his own mind. They are psychologically satisfying to him in a way to which the rest of us cannot easily relate. He rebelled whenever friends, family, sponsors, doctors, and society tried to change him which means that he will remain uneven and unfinished forever. The only consolation is that, when the final tallies are penciled onto the scorecard, the only person he's ever really hurt is himself.

  • John Daly may be the most talented golfer ever to play the game. He's never had a lesson and hardly ever practices, yet he competes with the best of the world class golfers who have had hundreds of hours of instructions and live on the range and putting greens.

    Those who follow the game know the story of John - part acholoic, part gambling addict, multiple wives, a real 'bad boy'. This book talks about the reasons John is the way he is. He makes no bones about who he is or the life he leads. He is brutally honest and never makes any excuses, which is why he is one of the most popular golfers on the tour. You can relate to him as a person. He's turned his life around and is struggeling with his personal demons. The book talks about how is attempting to get past those demons, what works and what doesn't work. But he is doing it his way and will continue to do it his way forever.

    The book makes a great read about overcoming troubles in our own life. It doesn't have a fairy tale ending and is as honest as John is big.
