What shot from his career will John Daly want to play again?

“Mulligan of my career probably be at DC. On 18, Bill Glasson got me. I pulled a 1-iron when I probably should have hit driver,” Daly said. He added that he hit 1-iron off the tee to the rough and only wants to hit the driver ‘right down the right side and hit a little L wedge in’.

Daly further explained that maybe if he made par, he would have a chance for a playoff. Maybe Glasson would still win, but Daly would have another chance.
