  • Watch John Daly hit a golf ball perched on a tee in a fan's mouth

    This is something you don't see two-time major winners do very often. John Daly was at a Nashville pizza parlor over the weekend when,  apparently on a dare, he hit a golf ball that was on top of a tee held in a fan's mouth. Now, I'm thinking that...
