(Newser) – Hell hath no fury like a golfer's wife spurned, and Sherrie Daly has a new book out giving her philandering ex more than a little hell, reports the New York Post. The fourth ex-wife of hard-drinking, chain-smoking golfer John Daly dishes on the temptations of the PGA tour, their nine-year marriage, and the secret of the 16th hole, in Teed Off: My Life as a Player's Wife on the PGA Tour. Lowlights:

  • On her least favorite of Daly's sponsors: "There were all these Hooters girls with their (breasts) flopping around everywhere, holding up these signs and screaming for John. It was just nasty."

  • On finding Daly in bed with another woman, complete with dirty pics: "I went through every phone number [the woman] had in it, whether it was her boss . . . or her parents. And I sent them the picture of her coochie with a note that went something like this: 'This is the vagina of the woman I just found in bed with my husband.' "
  • On love in the PGA: "Little did I know that being a golf wife would mean fighting off strippers who think it's OK to be out on the golf course without any clothes on."
  • And on Southwind golf course's 16th hole: "I'd been told by many men in Memphis, including my banker, that there was a girl who'd give golfers [oral sex] when they got to the sixteenth hole ... Apparently, all they had to do was pay $300 when they got there, and she'd take them into the bushes."
