Don't look for a glass-smashing, hotel room-trashing John Daly in the golfer's new reality show, premiering next week.
Down more than 100 pounds after lap-band surgery shrunk his stomach and restricted his diet, Daly is slimmer, trimmer and sober as he tries to mount yet another comeback.
The first episode of "Being John Daly" airs Tuesday on the Golf Channel. The golfer says he's trying to adapt to golfing as a thinner person. Although he can walk farther on the course, Daly says he's having a hard time putting — because he's used to resting his arm on his belly.
The eight-episode show will focus on Daly's attempts to gain PGA Tour exemptions, as well as his music career.
