With his Golf Channel reality show and his legions of screaming, beer-drinkin fans, Long John Daly is arguably the most popular golfer on the PGA tour. On Monday, his status will become legendary when he releases his autobiography, My Life in and out of the Rough: The Truth Behind All That Bull**** You Think You Know About Me.
