Daly in orange ... and red

Center Cut

John Daly rolls in a long birdie putt on the 10th hole at the FedEx St. Jude Classic on Thursday.

John Daly is off to another fast start on a Thursday. But will it continue? Daly, playing on a sponsor's exemption, carded a 2-under 68 in the first round and was in the top 10. He had five birdies and a double-bogey 5 on No. 11 when he hit his tee shot into the hazard. So was Daly happy with his round? "Normally I would be," Daly said. "It was a good ball-striking round for me. But I just didn’t make a lot of putts. So it’s kind of frustrating in that way. ... "It’s nice to feel disappointed about shooting 2 under. It really is." In four events this season, Daly has made three cuts. Each time, he's opened with a respectable score in Round 1 -- but it hasn't led to a high finish. At the Transitions Championship, Daly shot a first-round 69. He tied for 51st. At the RBC Heritage, Daly shot a first-round 70. He tied for 52nd. After a Round 1 73 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans he shot an 80 and missed the cut. He shot a 70 in the first round at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and tied for 41st. Daly has made 14 of 20 cuts in Memphis. His best finish was a T5 in 2001. We'll see if he can continue his solid play this week. Click here to replay Daly's round.
