John Daly's confidential personnel file at the PGA Tour became a matter of public record recently and uncovered a startling number of attempts by Tour officials to help the still wildly popular golfer with his issues on and off the course.

The 456-page file, obtained by The Florida Times-Union, covers the years 1991 through late 2008 and revealed the following:

That the PGA Tour, on seven occasions, ordered Daly to undergo counseling or enter alcohol rehabilitation;

That Daly was placed on Tour probation six times;

That Daly was cited 11 times for "conduct unbecoming a professional";

That Daly was flagged 21 times for "failure to give best efforts";

That Daly accrued fines of nearly $100,000 during the period covered in the file.

The final transgression listed in his file, according to the Times-Union, details Daly's six-month suspension from the PGA Tour at the start of the 2009 golf season after his October 2008 arrest, in which he was found intoxicated outside a Hooters restaurant in North Carolina.

Daly's personnel file also included accusations that he nearly struck an Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agent after failing to stop his car at a security checkpoint at the 2005 U.S. Open in Pinehurst, N.C.

Hopefully he will get his act together cause he is getting up there in age.

His latest reality show debuts on the Golf Channel tonight. I'm recording it, but don't know if it'll be interesting or not. Probably will be.
