Appleby calls Daly "Train Wreck" & GM X's Tiger

Everyone loves to talk smack about John Daly! Perhaps it's the only way to get your "name in the news" if you're Stewart Appleby, and no one cares that you're ranked 35th in the world? Maybe if you updated your visors from the 90's Stewart darling?

According to ESPN Golf: "John Daly is unique," Appleby said. "As players, we only wish that he put a little bit more time into his game and less time into ruining his personal life. He would be a draw card, not just a freak card, because he's so gifted it's a joke."

Golf Couture: Dear Stewart, can you say "harsh"? I mean c'mon you bandwagon rider! Sure, Daly is havin' some probs, but how 'bout some words of positivity? Reach out to him bruh, since he's in your "wishes" and all... I wish my body looked like Britney Spears' in the "I'm a slave for you" video, and so I'm on the treadmill for that extra mile and eat plain oatmeal for breakfast (yuck!).

Appleby continues via "I'm not quite sure how that works. I guess he's a walking train wreck and unfortunately, people turn their heads to watch the train wreck."

Golf Couture: You're almost right Stewie, except when you folded up like cheap lawn furniture at the Masters and Players Championship, cameras turned heads away and didn't air your "train wreck"? Hmmmmmmm... Harsh!

Top News: On a lighter and fluffier note, GM will drop it's 7-million dollar endorsement deal with Mr. Tiger Woods, aka Mr. Hot Birdie Machine! Something tells me he will manage just fine...

Annika Go Bye Bye

Well Forks, we've come to an end of an era... we say goodbye to Annika Sorenstam. She single handedly took Women's Golf and made it recognizabe and exciting!

Aside from the 8 LPGA player of the year titles, the only woman to shoot 59 in a competitive round, being 1 of 6 players to achieve the women's career Grand Slam, and being the first woman in 58 years to compete on the PGA Tour (2003 Bank of America Colonial), you can't help but feel a simple and genuine connection with her.

On they created a "Quick 18 with Annika Sorenstam" interview, and we were there to give our 2 cents!

LPGA: What is your biggest pet peeve?
Annika: People driving slowly in the left lane.
Golf Couture: Me too! How bout just people picking their nose and driving slow? Geez!

LPGA: What is your favorite store to shop in?
Annika: I'm not much for clothes shopping and things of that nature, so I'll say Whole Foods or Fresh Market for groceries.
Golf Couture: Annika darling, we all know that you picked up a better short game in trade for your fashion sense, it is no mystery. I got your back with Whole Foods girlfriend!

LPGA: If you could be on a reality TV show which one would you choose?
Annika: I hope to get on Dancing with the Stars at some point.
Golf Couture: We called it Annika!

LPGA: Name one thing you always keep stocked in your refrigerator?
Annika: Silk. It's Vanilla Soy Milk.
Golf Couture: Water bottles, diet coke, olives, roasted chicken and yogurt:)
Real Deal: We say goodbye, but lets be honest... there is a good chance that she pulls a "Jack Nicklaus" and plays in a few more majors to keep the "hype". It's a solid marketing ploy and so what if she takes a spot from a "strugging and broke touring pro"? People love to see Annika and the event will thrive.

With pending golf course development/construction, an expanding "Annika" clothing line and a golf academy school... hype is mandatory!
