John Daly and Wife at Odds Again

MEMPHIS, TN - John Daly and his wife called a truce after dueling court claims of a drunken rampage, a knife attack and sexual assault.

Daly, a two-time major champion with a history of hard drinking and hard living, showed up at a PGA tournament at Memphis last Friday with a face full of scratches and a story about his wife attacking him with a steak knife.

His wife, Sherrie Daly, who went to prison last year in connection with a drug investigation, accused him in a court petition yesterday of sexually assaulting her and making up the knife attack to mask his own wrongdoing.

Both asked a Memphis court for protection against the other.

But Daly's lawyer said the hostitilities cooled yesterday after a meeting with their attorneys.

Steven Black said the two have agreed to refrain from further public comments about their marital troubles.
