A Case of He Said He Said


Butch Harmon was not pleased Wednesday when reports reached him from Spain that John Daly claimed Harmon had apologized to him for Harmons recent sacking of Daly.
Daly told reporters in Seville, where he is playing in this weeks Spanish Open, that: I called (Harmon) the other day and he said he realized he didnt get the facts right and felt bad about it.
Daly was referring to Harmons decision to stop working as Dalys swing coach last month. At the time, Harmon cited, among other things, Dalys refusal to get help for his drinking problems.
Contacted Wednesday, Harmon told GOLF CHANNEL the following:
John Daly called me on Thursday and said he had lost all of his endorsement contracts because of me and my statements and asked if I could print a retraction. I said, John, you lost your contracts because of you and not anyone else.you need to quit blaming everyone else.I wish you well and I hope you play well.
For his part, Daly said reports of him partying and drinking were a bunch of lies.
