British Open 2010: John Daly Shoots 66

Last year, Tom Watson returned to form and nearly won the British Open. This year, can John Daly do the same? The beloved golfer, whose struggles with alcohol and gambling have only endeared him further to his fans, shot a 66 in the opening round of the tournament. The only thing more eye-grabbing than his name near the top of the leader board—he’s tied for third—was, perhaps, his outfit: He wore purple paisley pants with a peach shirt and a light-blue sweater vest. Daly won the British Open in 1995 and his 66 tied his best score at the tournament. Twenty-one-year-old Rory McIlroy leads the tournament after tying the course record with a 63. Tiger Woods is also in the hunt after shooting 67.
