John Daly-Callaway

When Callaway signed Daly to an endorsement contract in May 1997, it was under the provision that Daly not drink or gamble. Daly's Callaway bag even featured the slogan, "Keep It Straight, John." Two years later, Daly couldn't live up to the agreement, and the equipment manufacturer announced it was releasing him from the contract. "Regrettably, we cannot continue to have John as a company representative when he is not prepared to take the future steps that we feel are necessary to deal with the alcohol and gambling problems facing him,'' company chairman Ely Callaway said.
