Phil Mickelson is a cheater. John Daly is a quitter. Or maybe not, though Scott McCarron did assert Mickelson's use of a controversial club was cheating and Daly did tell a producer for the Golf Channel that he was done with golf after rounds of 79 and 71 left the 43-year-old Daly not close to making the cut for the final two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. "I'm done," Daly said on camera. "I can't compete. I can't play like I used to." D.A. Points and Ryuji Imada, meanwhile, are your co-leaders after two rounds, at 11-under-par 133. Points had an eagle and a birdie on his last four holes on the South Course to finish with a 65 Friday.

John Daly left Torrey Pines on Friday saying he was done with golf. He had missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open and he said in the parking lot, "I can't compete. I can't play like I used to." Since he left, though, Daly has been busy on Twitter telling his 42,000 followers that he is not retiring. Daly's "I'm done" comment was said to a producer for his soon-to-debut Golf Channel reality show, "Being John Daly." On Saturday, Larry Jackson, chief executive of Loudmouth Golf, the maker of Daly's attention-grabbing pants, told reporters at a PGA merchandise show in Orlando, Fla., "John's an emotional guy. He's not quitting, he's already said he just needs some time.

SOCHI, Russia - Locked in a battle for Olympic bronze, best friends Matt Antoine and John Daly knew one of them would leave disappointed. The American skeleton racers, however, never could have imagined the depth of that disappointment. Unable to catch the first- and second-place leaders, Antoine and Daly had engaged in a seesaw battle for third place during the first three heats at the Sanki Sliding Center. At the start of the final run Saturday, Daly sat in fourth, just four-hundredths of a second behind his teammate.

A federal judge has refused to dismiss charges against a Southern California man charged with exporting missile parts to Iran. The judge also ruled that the man's lawyers may not see five classified government documents. The rulings cleared the way for jury selection to begin Monday. Chief U.S. District Judge T. F. Gilroy Daly said defense motions to dismiss the charges were "devoid of merit" and also denied a renewed motion to set bail for Arif Durrani of Westlake Village.

We have to pull for the members of a ghetto family in Gerry Daly's "Scotch and Milk," determined to con some way out of their miserable hellhole of a neighborhood. It takes imagination to come up with the idea of buying into a ritzy white section of town (in this case, Detroit) on the basis of an initial down payment, then scaring your neighbors with such antisocial behavior that in stirring up their elitist, racist attitudes, it spurs them to buy you out.

Question : As an employee of a hotel, I wonder what is the proper way to offer an accessible room to someone I think might need something other than a standard room. I don't want to offend that person if he or she doesn't want that kind of room. Is it rude to offer alternative accommodations when they have not been requested? Russell Daly Salt Lake City Answer: It's not rude, but it could be a bit risky. When Daly asked this question, I wondered whether there were legal ramifications.

Regarding Mary Daly, the "radical feminist" professor at Boston College who refuses to admit men to her courses (Feb. 26): Her excuse for this discriminatory conduct is "her belief that women tend to defer to a man whenever one is present." Does Daly have any idea how demeaning it is to women for her to have made that statement? She is saying that the women who take her course are so stupid and conditioned that simply having a man in the room will make them in some way subservient?

This is something you don't see two-time major winners do very often. John Daly was at a Nashville pizza parlor over the weekend when,  apparently on a dare, he hit a golf ball that was on top of a tee held in a fan's mouth. Now, I'm thinking that given Daly's history of drinking, letting him swing a driver at full speed toward my head is not the best course of action, but Daly was successful and it appears everyone enjoyed themselves. But what happened to the golf ball?

The "Today" couch just got a little more crowded: Carson Daly will be joining the NBC morning show as host of the "Orange Room," a brand new digital studio that will be unveiled Monday. "I think a lot of people associate me with nighttime," Daly said. "But truth be told I'm more of a morning person. "  The "Orange Room" will be a place "where 'The Today Show' viewer will feel like they have a home," Daly said.  The space, a "casual, lounge-like setting,"  will provide a "nexus point between the 'Today' audience and the show," NBC elaborated in a press statement.  INTERACTIVE: Fall 2013 TV preview Daly, who rose to fame as host of MTV's "Total Request Live" during the late '90s teen-pop heyday and has been a frequent guest host on "Today," described the show as "'TRL' for grown-ups" and characterizes his new role on the show as a "digital doorman.

Reality TV contestants have a reputation for being highly competitive, unabashedly outspoken and sometimes downright catty. The same isn't usually true of the shows' mild-mannered hosts - not without a bit of prodding, at least. During a conversation at the Envelope Emmy Round Table about the challenges of gauging a show's success, "The Voice" host Carson Daly alluded to another popular TV singing competition but didn't name names. "You look at shows that might put out an artist that infiltrates pop culture and becomes a top-10 [artist]

Screening Room: Assuming the Dodgers are not playing, on a Friday night I tend to have some close friends over to watch a movie. Sometimes on both Friday and Saturday, but it's hard to find two movies I want to watch on a given weekend. The only time I ever go to a theater is if there's a "Star Wars"-type movie.

The PR spin on this book has been all about the “Hollywood insider,” and I suppose she was, having been married for so long to entertainment executive Bob Daly. But to Angelenos who knew her, and they were many -- and not all of them having anything to do with Hollywood -- Nancy Daly was a formidable woman, an advocate for children whose email address was "lovedkidsla" and who was for a time, as Mayor Dick Riordan's wife, L.A.'s first lady. Nancy died in the autumn of 2009, and now her daughter, Linda, has written a book, “The Last Pilgrimage,” about her mother's well-reported life and about her private death from pancreatic cancer, in an RV, traveling toward L.A. with her children after a trip to visit her East Coast childhood home and to the faith healer John of God. Linda writes with a sardonic eye about that man, who seemed to be in worse condition than her mother; and yet she respected her mother's awe, like that of a little Catholic girl who had just seen Jesus, she writes.
