Quotes of the Week

"It seems the more I work, the worse I get." -- John Daly goes against conventional wisdom.

"That I was happy when I was a miserable drunk -- I played better when I was drunk." -- Daly again, smiling, when asked what he'd learned about himself down the years.

"I'm an idiot." -- Japan's Ryuji Imada after being hit for a staggering 26 penalty strokes, which relegated him from first to last at the Mission Hills Star Trophy in China.

Imada was docked two shots for each of the 13 holes in which the 34-year-old took a club length for his preferred lies, as per US Tour rules, instead of the scorecard's length permitted in Asia and Europe. He hadn't read the local rules sheet.
