It’s rare that a golf commercial is turned down by a major network for being too wild. Naturally, this one, for Maxfli golf balls, involves John Daly. He’s shown singing in a honky-tonk bar, bringing beer to a golf course, using a beer can as a tee, and driving erratically in a golf cart. For Daly, this may be a tradition unlike any other, but CBS has refused to air the ad. Apparently those three visits to the Betty Ford Clinic for alcohol abuse did not help Daly much. Via Deadspin.
