According to his new book, MY LIFE IN AND OUT OF THE ROUGH, John Daly has lost between $50 and $60 million gambling at various casinos.
Daly's career golf earnings: $8.7 million.

Where the hell did the extra $41.3 million come from? Did he win the lotto? Whoever's letting Daly run up these debts is probably the same guy that kept loaning money to Robert DeNiro's Johnny Boy in "Mean Streets."

BTW I had the chance to meet Daly last year while I was with Warner Books. There's something inherently captivating about the guy, as he's probably the most unashamedly honest person when it comes to his personal demons as anyone I've ever met. Not to mention his skin is so leathery it looks like it might peel off at any moment.

At least he's honest. Unlike certain ex-baseball player/managers with horrible Prince Valiant haircuts who whine about being left out of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Funny story, my old boss at Warner actually published Price Valiant's, er, Pete Rose's first book, where he denied ever betting on baseball. He said Rose's book was the first tome that started out as non-fiction but ended up as fiction (of course this was before some other guy appeared on Oprah...).
