John Daly admits to drinking mid-round in a 

US PGA Tour event ... and he played better!

Let's just say ESPN didn't decide to do a documentary on John Daly because of his history of sound judgment on and off the golf course although he did win the US Open and the Open.
Instead, it was for all the ingredients that have made Daly one of golf's most intriguing and mercurial figures: the multiple marriages, the on-course meltdowns, and the drinking. Lots and lots of drinking.
In a teaser for the upcoming "Hit It Hard," which will debut November 1 as part of the popular "30 for 30" series, Daly acknowledges there were plenty of occasions when he played tournaments hungover from the night before. 
But as far as drinking during the round, Daly says it was only one time, years ago in the Los Angeles Open.
"It was so slow and I played the back nine first," Daly says. "I think I'm two or three over. I went in the locker room and downed like five beers, and I think I shot four under on the front nine. That is the only time I know I drank during a round, and I played great. I played great that week. I finished strong."
If Daly's candour from the one clip is any indication, we suspect the ESPN film will be worth watching.
