Sydney, Nov.30 (ANI): Golfer John Daly fears that the sport will suffer if Tiger Woods sustains any long-term damage from the mystery car crash outside his Florida home last week.
"Tiger's the biggest asset the tour's had in a long, long time," The Age quoted Daly, as saying as he began preparing for this week's Australian Open at NSW Golf Club.
"Whatever happened, as long as he's OK that's all that matters. Golf needs him badly ... no doubt."
Daly, the dual major winner, four-time divorcee and serial hell-raiser, managed to hide his bemusement at discussing someone else's private life - let alone Tiger Woods'.
He could shed no light on the out-of-character episode that has dominated golf discussion in recent days.
"I don't really care what happened between Tiger and ... whatever happened. I'm just glad he's OK.
"We need him probably more than anybody on the tour to keep things going, the way the economy is." (ANI)
