John Daly withdrew from the PGA Tour Champions Allianz Championship on Sunday after seven holes, citing a back issue; but he apparently felt well enough to toss his putter in a lake before pulling out of the tournament, according to a report from linksmagazine.com.
Fresh off back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 6 and 7, Daly reportedly threw his putter into a hazard behind the seventh green before leaving the course without speaking about the incident.
While there is no video available, writer Dan Hauser did snap a picture of the submerged flatstick and he claims he wasn't the only one who gathered around for a look.
