PETER KESSLER
ALRIGHT, HERE'S THE QUESTION POSTED TO OUR WEB SITE THAT WE PICKED FOR JOHN TONIGHT:

WHAT THOUGHTS DO YOU HAVE ABOUT A CAREER AFTER YOUR PLAYING DAYS ARE OVER? WILL IT BE GOLF RELATED OR WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY SOMETHING IN ANOTHER AREA? DAVID BORROWS SENT THAT IN.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

JOHN DALY
UH .THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS I'D LIKE TO DO. UM, YOU KNOW, I'D LOVE TO MAYBE TRAVEL A LITTLE BIT MORE TO OTHER PLACES WHERE IT'S NOT GOLF.

UM, I'D LIKE TO GET INTO SOME - MAYBE SOME . MY OWN KIND OF LIKE RESTAURANTS AND SPORTS SORT OF PUB THINGS. I'D LOVE TO DO THAT. AND UH, YOU KNOW, I JUST STARTED THIS NEW COMPANY WITH UM .

A LOT OF PEOPLE, WHEN I WAS YOUNG, THEY CALLED ME A LOT OF THINGS, BUT THE LION HAS BEEN THE ONE THAT HAS STUCK OUT THE MOST. AND UH, TALKING TO CHI-CHI ABOUT, I'D SAY 5 OR 6, 7 MONTHS AGO,

HE JUST BROUGHT IT UP. HE SAYS, YOU KNOW, YOU ARE THE LION. AND I'VE NEVER TALKED TO HIM ABOUT THAT BEFORE. HE JUST BROUGHT IT UP. HE SAID 'THE GOLD HAIR, THE BLUE EYES .

YOU NEED TO BE THE LION PUNISHING(???)' THAT'S WHAT HE SAID. AND SO I GOT TO THINKING ABOUT IT. AND THEN UM, RONNY MCCAHAN AND MARK CAME TO ME AT THE JC PENNY. AND YOU KNOW, WE STARTED TALKING ABOUT THIS AND - AND .

I SAID, 'YEAH, THE LION, THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO BE.' AND RONNY BROUGHT IT BACK UP TO ORLANDO AND GOT A GRAPHIC GUY HERE IN TOWN AND DREW IT UP, FELL IN LOVE WITH IT.

AND UM, IT'S JUST . WE'RE JUST SORT OF PROMOTING IT TODAY RIGHT HERE ON THE SHOW TONIGHT.

PETER KESSLER
WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES FOR THIS THING? WHAT IS THIS NEW ENTERPRISE GOING TO DO? WHAT ARE ITS GOALS?

JOHN DALY
WELL, WE - WE WANT TO . WE WANTED TO MAKE IT FUN. UM, IT'S NOT GONNA BE SOMETHING WHERE YOU GOT TO SPEND A TON OF MONEY TO GET A DECENT QUALITY ITEM, WHETHER IT'S A HAT - WE'RE GONNA HAVE HATS, TEE SHIRTS, GOLF SHIRTS .

UM, BELTS . JUST A LOT OF FUN STUFF THAT, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE CAN . I WANTED PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO AFFORD IT. AND IT'S GONNA BE GOOD QUALITY. UM, CROSS CREEK HAS DONE A TON OF SHIRTS FOR US.

THEY'VE BEEN WONDERFUL TO DEAL WITH AND I'VE BEEN WEARING THEM A LOT. AND UH, YOU KNOW, THE HATS ARE REALLY . ARE REALLY COOL WITH THE LION ON IT AND THE SIGNATURE AND - AND THE SWING.

AND UM, BUT WE'VE BEEN KIND OF AROUND ALL DAY TODAY TALKING TO PEOPLE UM . UH, TALKED TO EDWIN WATTS TODAY AND - AND THEY'RE INTERESTED AND - AND UM, LIQUID UH GOLF DOT COM, WHO'S REALLY HUGE.

UM, WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF HOPEFULLY DOING SOMETHING WITH THEM TO SELL THE MERCHANDISE. AND UM, IT'S GONNA BE MORE - MOSTLY JUST A LOT OF FUN, A LOT OF STUFF THAT PEOPLE CAN HAVE FUN WITH IT.

UM, THE FIRST SET OF TEE SHIRTS ARE 'GRIP IT AND RIP IT.' THE SECOND ONES ARE GONNA BE 'HIT IT HARD.' WE'RE GONNA COME UP WITH A - JUST A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT FUN SAYINGS THAT PEOPLE CAN IDENTIFY. AND .

THE LION WILL ALWAYS BE ON THE BACK OF THE TEE SHIRT. AND UH, IT'S JUST GONNA BE A LOT OF FUN.

PETER KESSLER
DO YOU LIKE YOURSELF MORE THAN YOU USED TO, DO YOU THINK? ARE YOU BEING BETTER TO YOU?

JOHN DALY
YEAH, I AM. UM, YOU KNOW, I . I STILL GET PRETTY DOWN WHEN I DON'T PLAY GOOD, BUT I DON'T TAKE IT OUT LIKE I USED TO. AND UM, YOU KNOW, I'M - I'M EAGER TO GET TO THE NEXT DAY IF THINGS AREN'T GOING GOOD

AND UM, TO WORK ON MY GAME AND FIND OUT, 'ALRIGHT, WHAT'S GOING ON? LET'S GET THIS SOLVED.' AND THAT'S KIND OF THE WAY I'VE APPROACHED LIFE. UH .

UH, JUST IF YOU DON'T HAVE A GOOD DAY, THEN HEY, LET'S . LET'S JUST GET THROUGH THIS DAY AND - AND WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW, YOU KNOW. AND UH, NOT EVERY DAY IS GONNA BE A GOOD DAY.

BUT UH, I'M ACTUALLY HAVING FUN. AND - AND FUN IN A RESPONSIBLE WAY OFF THE GOLF COURSE, YOU KNOW. PEOPLE THAT USED TO BE AROUND ME WERE SCARED TO BE AROUND ME WHEN THOSE FUN NIGHTS TURNED INTO SOME DISASTERS BECAUSE .

SURE OVERDRINKING AND JUST DOING STUPID THINGS. AND I JUST DON'T SEE MYSELF DOING THAT ANYMORE. IT'S - FOR ONE, IT'S NOT WORTH IT. UH, FOR TWO, I REMEMBER HOW HANGOVERS USED TO FEEL. I DON'T LIKE THEM, DON'T WANT THEM.

UM, SO THAT PART OF IT IS JUST . GO OUT IF I WANT TO GO OUT AND HAVE SOME FUN. AND UM, I'M GONNA DO A LOT OF PROMOTION DAYS. UH, WE'VE - WE'VE HAD SOME GOOD TALKS WITH THE - THE ALE HOUSE HERE IN TOWN.

WE DID A PROMOTION LAST WEEK, JUST SIGNED SOME TEE SHIRTS AND SOME HATS AND - AND WE JUST HAD A GREAT TIME WITH IT. AND TO ME, THAT'S SOMETHING THAT I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO DO. UM,

THIS IS SORT OF A DREAM TO BE IDENTIFIED WITH SOMETHING. YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE . LIKE I'M SURE GREG NORMAN FEELS THE SAME WAY ABOUT THE SHARK AND NICKLAUS ABOUT THE BEAR AND TIGER AND THE WALRUS AND ALL THAT.

AND PEOPLE SAID IT'S A GOOD IDENTITY FOR ME. UM, YOU KNOW, THE LION IS - IS . IS JUST . IS . I THINK KIND OF FITS ME. I MAY - MAYBE NOT BE IN AS GOOD A SHAPE AS A LION IS. BUT UH,

TO - TO HIT THE BALL AS HARD AS I DO AND . AND EVERY NOW AND THEN, I MIGHT PLAY WELL. (CHUCKLE) SO .
