John Daly Gives Back to Community, Sues Children's Hospital for $100 Million

June 11, 2010

Children with cancer have been given a free pass for far too long. Someone needs to put an end to their tyrannical reign of Make-a-Wish montages and inspiring life stories. Luckily, John Daly is up for the challenge.

The somewhat professional golfer recently filed a lawsuit against the Honda Classic Golf Tournament and its sponsors (including a children's hospital) after an unfortunate fan incident at a 2008 tournament.

Here’s the gist of the lawsuit courtesy of Sports By Brooks:

Daly filed it two years ago after a woman taking pictures jumped in front of him in mid-swing. Daly claimed in the paperwork he aborted the movement because he feared killing the woman but felt his rib cage pop out. The paperwork reads that Daly and other players unsuccessfully tried three times before the incident to have security kick the unidentified woman off the course. Daly blamed the injury’s recurrence for his withdrawal from several tournaments this year. He even twittered about retirement.

Sorry kids. John Daly has to eat and there's no such thing as a free lunch at Hooters.
