Though Daly is a great golfer, the 2003 season wasn’t a worthy remembrance for Big John. He struggled to make the cut in most events. In 22 starts of the season, Daly failed to make the cut 10 times, while withdrawing from four events. Moreover, he only had a single top-10 finish in 2003.

However, the exciting run was brought to an end after Daly released his anger. During one of the holes, the 56-year-old choked an easy putt. After missing the putt, ‘the Wild Thing’ decided to stroke the ball while it was still moving. The commission of the Valero Texas Open was understandably unhappy with the golfer and decided to disqualify him.
