PETER KESSLER
WE TALKED ABOUT YOUR KIDS AND WE TALKED ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK OTHER KIDS OUGHT TO THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE UP TO. WHAT DO YOU TELL YOUR DAUGHTERS ABOUT DOING THE RIGHT THING?

WHAT'S YOUR SENSE OF CHARACTER AND VALUES WHEN YOU TALK TO THEM, AS YOUNG AS THEY ARE?

JOHN DALY
WELL, THEY'RE BOTH SO YOUNG THAT UM . SHYNAH KIND OF UNDERSTANDS A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN SIERRA, UM, ABOUT LIKE THE REHABS THAT I'VE BEEN IN AND STUFF. AND I'VE TRIED TO TELL SHYNAH THAT

DADDY DRINKS A LITTLE BIT OF BEER BUT HE DOESN'T . YOU KNOW, I TOLD HER I WON'T DRINK IN FRONT OF YOU OR SIERRA. UM, IT'S JUST NOT, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING THAT I WANT TO DO. AND UM,

SO SHYNAH KIND OF KNOWS WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON AND - AND SHE'S KIND OF . KIND OF UP TO SORT OF THE PAST THAT I'VE HAD. BUT SHE'S STILL NOT QUITE SURE WHAT . WHAT'S ALL GONE ON. BUT UH .

PETER KESSLER
EITHER ARE YOU. (LAUGH)

JOHN DALY
EITHER AM I. I MEAN, YOU'RE RIGHT. YOU'RE RIGHT. I MEAN . BUT THE THING I DO IS I LOVE MY DAUGHTERS AND - AND I CHERISH THE TIME THAT I'M WITH THEM. AND TO ME, THAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

PETER KESSLER
LET'S CHECK IN WITH JIM IN MICHIGAN. GO AHEAD, JIM.

ARE YOU THERE?

JIM?

JIM, CALLER FROM MICHIGAN :
YEAH.

PETER KESSLER
FIRE AWAY.

JIM, CALLER FROM MICHIGAN :
OKAY. UH JOHN, HOW YOU DOING?

JOHN DALY
GOOD, JIM, HEY.

JIM, CALLER FROM MICHIGAN :
UH, I KNOW MR. CALLAWAY HAD A LOT TO DO WITH, YOU KNOW, HELPING YOU OUT THE LAST COUPLE YEARS. UH, DO YOU STILL MAINTAIN A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM? UM, DO YOU STILL TALK TO HIM AT ALL?

JOHN DALY
I HAVEN'T TALKED TO MR. C IN QUITE A WHILE. BUT UH, I'VE TALKED TO ALL THE . LIKE MIKE GALESKI (SPELLING-???) AND ALL THE PEOPLE AT CALLAWAY, WE - WE STILL TALK AND WE'RE ALL STILL VERY, VERY GOOD FRIENDS.

AND UM, IT'S BEEN . IT'S - IT'S BEEN COOL. I MEAN, THEY - THEY'VE ALL BEEN UM, VERY SUPPORTIVE IN - IN EVERYTHING THAT I'M TRYING TO DO. AND SO UH .

IT'S - IT'S COOL. IT'S THE FIRST KIND OF COMPANY THAT UH, WHEN THINGS DIDN'T GO SO GOOD AND WE DEPARTED WAYS, THAT HEY, I CAN CALL THEM AND SAY, 'HEY, WHAT'S GOING ON? EVERYTHING COOL?' AND .

YOU KNOW, AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT'S . I'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO DO. UM, I WAS WITH WILSON FOR A FEW YEARS AND I SEE MIKE BORLAND AND . AND A COUPLE OF THE OTHER GUYS. BUT UH,

IT'S WEIRD. WHEN YOU SEEM TO LEAVE THE COMPANY, YOU DON'T GET TO TALK TO THEM AS MUCH. AND NOTHING REALLY .

UH, IT'S JUST KIND OF GONE. BUT WITH CALLAWAY, THEY'LL NEVER BE GONE IN MY LIFE BECAUSE MR. CALLAWAY IS . LIKE I SAID, HE'LL ALWAYS STILL BE A FATHER FIGURE TO ME.

UM, AND I LOVE THE COMPANY. I ALWAYS - I ALWAYS WILL AND . AND I ALWAYS HAVE. AND, YOU KNOW, I KIND - I DO MISS THEM. I DO MISS THEM. BUT, YOU KNOW, I HAD TO DO WHAT I THOUGHT WAS RIGHT. AND MR. CALLAWAY HAD TO DO WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS RIGHT.

PETER KESSLER
YOU USED TO TAKE SOME GOOD ADVICE FROM SPORTS PSYCHOLOGIST DR. BOB ROTELLA. DO YOU STILL TALK TO DR. BOB?

JOHN DALY
OCCASIONALLY I'VE TALKED TO DOC. UH .

PETER KESSLER
WHAT DOES HE THINK OF WHAT YOU'RE UP TO.

JOHN DALY
UM, HE JUST - BASICALLY DOC AND I TALK ABOUT GOLF. UM, YOU KNOW . UM, JUST BASICALLY WHAT'S GOING ON, YOU KNOW. AND IT'S ALWAYS SORT OF ABOUT CONFIDENCE. AND IT - IT .

HE TRIES TO MAKE ME FEEL GOOD AND GOES BACK TO THINGS THAT I'VE DONE REALLY GOOD IN THE GAME AND QUIT DWELLING ON THE NEGATIVE PART OF THE GAME.

AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT - THAT . I CAN NEVER SEEM TO GET THE NEGATIVE, NOT ONLY OUT OF MY GOLF GAME, BUT SORT OF OUT OF MY LIFE BECAUSE IT'S BEEN PRINTED SO MUCH IN THE PAPERS. AND I HAVEN'T READ A SPORTS PAGE IN 7 OR 8 MONTHS.

I WON'T EVEN LOOK AT A NEWSPAPER. AND IT'S NOT - IT'S NOT . I DON'T KNOW, IT'S JUST I GOT SO USED TO EVERY TIME I WAS IN THE NEWSPAPER, IF I'M PLAYING BAD GOLF, EVERYTHING IS JUST WRITTEN BAD ABOUT ME.

AND EVEN WHEN I WAS PLAYING GOOD GOLF SOMETHING WAS WRITTEN BAD ABOUT ME. AND IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE I JUST . IT'S NOT EVEN WORTH READING THE NEWSPAPER ANYMORE.

I MEAN, IT'S NOT. I MEAN, THE WAY THE MEDIA IS NOWADAYS, IT'S KIND OF 'BRING YOU UP AND BRING YOU DOWN'. AND I THINK I'VE COME TO A CROSSROAD WHERE I'M JUST KIND OF TIRED OF IT.

I'M NOT REALLY THAT MUCH INTO DOING SO MANY NEWSPAPER INTERVIEWS ANYMORE. I - I LOVE TO DO TV STUFF 'CAUSE YOU CAN TELL LIKE IT IS. YOU GET SOMEBODY WITH A PEN THERE, MAN, THEY CAN WRITE ANYTHING THEY WANT TO.

AND NOWADAYS, IF THEY DON'T LIKE YOU, HEH, YOU'RE GONNA KNOW ABOUT IT. (CHUCKLE)
