HOW DO YOUR MOM AND DAD REACT TO ALL OF THE PRESS THAT YOU'VE GOTTEN, PARTICULARLY THE NEGATIVE STUFF? AND HOW DO THEY ACTUALLY DEAL WITH YOU? IS IT A GOOD RELATIONSHIP?

JOHN DALY
OH YEAH, MY PARENTS ARE WONDERFUL. UM, THEY'RE KIND OF LIKE ME. THEY - THEY DON'T TEND TO READ - READ IT ANYMORE. UM, YOU KNOW, LIKE I SAID, THERE'S NOTHING BETTER THAN LOVE AND I'VE GOT IT FROM MY MOM AND DAD AND MY BROTHER.

AND WE JUST UM . YOU KNOW, I - I HAVE A PLACE THERE NOW THAT I GO THERE AND I SPEND A LOT OF TIME WITH THEM. UM, MY MOM AND DAD SORT OF HAVE A HOUSE RIGHT BEHIND MINE. AND UM,

IT'S JUST - IT'S KIND OF GOOD TO BE BACK HOME IN A WAY. AND UM . 'CAUSE THE BOTTOM LINE IS IT'S THE PEOPLE YOU CARE ABOUT AND THE PEOPLE THAT CARE ABOUT YOU, THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS IN THIS WORLD.

YOU KNOW, IT'S . THEY'VE - THEY'VE TAKEN A LOT OF HITS AND - AND THEY'VE GOTTEN THROUGH IT. AND UM, YOU KNOW, MY MOM AND DAD HAVE JUST BEEN THE MOST SUPPORTIVE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE.

PETER KESSLER
IN WATCHING YOU OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS, IT SEEMS TO A LOT OF US THAT ONE OF THE THINGS YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IS PEACE OF MIND. HAVE YOU FIGURED OUT A WAY TO HAVE SOME PEACEFUL MOMENTS NOW? DO YOU HAVE THOSE?

JOHN DALY
I DO. UH I, YOU KNOW, I STILL PLAY THE GUITAR AND IT GETS ME AWAY FROM ALL THE STUFF AND UM, YOU KNOW, AND . UM, JUST BEING AROUND THE PEOPLE THAT I - THAT I - THAT I KNOW CARE ABOUT ME. AND THAT'S - THAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

I MEAN, UM, IT'S TOUGH ON THE ROAD. IT - IT'S UH, AS A LOT OF THE PLAYERS DO KNOW. WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING GREAT, IT'S NOT TOUGH AT ALL. THE WEEKS JUST SEEM TO FLY BY WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING GOOD.

WHEN YOU'RE NOT PLAYING SO GOOD, THEY TEND TO LAST A LITTLE LONGER. BUT UM, YOU KNOW, JUST ASSOCIATE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT - THAT CARE ABOUT ME, THAT I CAN TRUST, UM . AND GO OUT AND HAVE FUN WITH THEM.

UM, LIKE I TOLD YOU, I HAVE A GREAT GIRLFRIEND. SHE'S WATCHING IN DALLAS AND UH, SHE RELATES TO A LOT OF THINGS I'VE GONE THROUGH. AND UM, SHE'S VERY ATHLETIC. AND SO SHE LIKES TO BE OUTDOORS DOING THINGS WITH ME. AND UM,

SO IT'S THE PEOPLE THAT - THAT I CAN TRUST. AND - AND UM, YOU KNOW, WITH SOME NEW RELATIONSHIPS THAT I HAVE, WITHOUT UH . BASICALLY CORPORATIONS MAYBE GIVING UP ON JOHN DALY, BUT A GREAT BUNCH OF GUYS IN ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA .
