John Daly, the sometime Memphis-area resident who was the last major golfing phenom before the advent of Tiger Woods, may have had his troubles with women in the past, but, like other males before him, he's discovered the truth of the old adage: When it rains, it pours. This is the man who gained a reputation as his game's biggest hitter in the '90s but missed greatness while having problems with alcohol and a difficult first marriage. He's a newlywed again, though, and not only does wedlock seem to be treating him better this time, his new wife didn't even mind when another female - Lady Luck, to be exact - turned up on the honeymoon in Tunica. Some two weeks ago, the freshly married John and Sherry Daly visited Bally's and, according to a well-placed source, left with some $700,000 of the casino's cash. Whether that was what prompted the gesture or not, another Tunica casino, Horseshoe, has since decided to hold its own wedding reception for The Dalys on the night of August 12th. And if John wants to try his luck afterward, well....We'll keep you posted on how that visit turns out. And, who knows? Yesterday, Bally's. Tomorrow, Hollywood's. Maybe in the not-too-distant future, it'll be Augusta, Ga. Another Master's championship jacket would like nice on Daly if he wants to keep collecting green.
