Fan favorite and two-time major champion John Daly is known for toughness and coolness out on the course and is also widely regarded as the greatest hitter off the tee in PGA Tour history (Only Jack Nicklaus is considered better). But one thing that he fears is one thing that most of us fear. Snakes. On November 25th, JD got a rude awaking from a slithery little friend in South Africa and he had to get some snake exterminator dudes to clear the place of the snake. According to JD on his Twitter, it’s supposed to be a Mozambique spitting cobra and can spit venom on its prey. Cobras are believed to be the second most dangerous creatures in the world behind mosquitoes (Yes, mosquitoes). I’d say John doesn’t look to happy in the picture below now does he?

I don’t blame him though, I’d freak out too but anybody that knows me knows that I have a fear of spiders. Although I think spiders are quite interesting creatures, I just can’t deal with them personally but I’ll watch them on TV, sure! As long as they aren’t in the same room as me then I’m good. As you saw on tweet, he has a phobia for snakes and I’m sure he really flipped once he knew what kind of snake it was. Heck, I’d be terrified if I EVER saw a spider spit ANYTHING out of its mouth! Fortunately, John’s OK and he’s ready for more golf action, you the man JD!
