John Daly to appear in reality TV show

Professional golfer John Daly is joining the legions of Paris Hilton, Ozzy Osbourne and Donald Trump in the world of reality TV.

Daly will star in "The Daly Planet," a 13-part series for The Golf Channel beginning Jan. 18. The weekly Wednesday night episodes will follow Daly's daily life on and off the golf course.

The long-hitting, 39-year-old Daly has for years been one of the most popular golfers on the PGA tour. A two-time major championship winner, Daly has also battled problems with alcohol, weight and his temper.

Daly's life has seemed the stuff of fiction before. At an 1998 tournament, Daly shot an 18 on one hole, hitting shot after shot into a water hazard - virtually mimicking Kevin Costner's character in the 1996 movie "Tin Cup." In it, Costner plays a regular guy - a driving range owner - who has a chance to win the U.S. Open before stubbornly hitting balls repeatedly into a pond.

"I still say they made that movie after me," Daly said at the time.
