Daly makes a 10 (and a 7) (and another 7)

John Daly made a quintuple-bogey 10 on the par-5 first hole Friday (his 10th hole) in the second round of the Buick Open.

ShotTracker on pgatour.com shows that he hit his drive "314 yards to unknown." It apparently was out of bounds. He hit his third down the tree line and it, too, apparently was out of bounds. He hit his fifth shot from the tee to the left rough, his sixth to the left rough, his seventh to the right intermediate rough, 78 feet from the hole and then took three to hole out from there, the last of his strokes a 12-foot putt to save 10.

UPDATE: He bogeyed the third hole and triple-bogeyed the fourth to go 10-over par for his round through 13 holes.

UPDATE II: He quadruple-bogeyed the eighth hole (his 17th) to go 13-over par for his round.

UPDATE III: A double-bogey at his last hole finished a round of 88 that included 51 strokes on his back nine.
