Daly says confidence low ahead of Thai event



Larger-than-life American John Daly on Tuesday said he was struggling for confidence ahead of the Thailand Golf Championship which comes less than a month after he pulled out of the Singapore Open.

Daly, whose two Major titles have been overshadowed by his turbulent personal life and years of indifferent form, pulled out of the Singapore event at 11 over par mid-way through his second round.

"You never know what you're going to get out of me, you never know what I'm going to do... I don't either," the plain-speaking American told reporters in Bangkok ahead of Thursday's tournament at the Amata Spring course.

"Hopefully I will play well but I don't have a lot of confidence right now."

"Wild Thing" Daly has endured well-documented drink and marital problems and has had a chequered reputation in the sport.

Career high wins came at the 1991 US PGA Championship and 1995 British Open, while lows include withdrawing from the 2002 Australian PGA Championship after hurling his ball and putter into a lake in a row over a penalty drop.

Daly's misadventures also include being disqualified from the 2008 Arnold Palmer Invitational for missing his pro-am tee time.

Daly will be joined at the Amata Spring course by defending champion Lee Westwood, US Masters winner Bubba Watson, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel.

The Thailand Golf Championship is the penultimate event of the Asian Tour calendar.
