Daly says on Twitter to talk to golf writer

John Daly was so irritated that a Florida newspaper wrote about his PGA Tour disciplinary file that he referred to the writer as a "jerk" on Twitter and posted the writer's cell phone number for his followers to call. The Florida Times-Union reported Tuesday that the file is now public record through Daly's unsuccessful libel lawsuit against the newspaper. The file is 456 pages and notes that Daly has been suspended five times and cited 21 times for not giving his best effort.

The story appeared the day Daly's reality show made its debut on The Golf Channel.

The two-time major champion has since removed his tweets. Daly did not return a voicemail. The PGA Tour said it would have no comment.
