PGA: John Daly was still steaming Wednesday over the PGA Tour's drug testing program that he says is too predictable to be random and was "a big joke." Daly based his rant on being tested six consecutive years at the Valspar Championship, which starts this week at Innisbrook. His biggest complaint: Having to hold it in on the back nine knowing he will be selected to provide a urine sample after his round. "It's not fair to the tour guys," Daly said after his pro-am round. "I don't mind taking a drug test at all. When I'm sitting out here Thursday and Friday thinking I'm going to get drug tested, holding my [urine] for two hours, it affects your golf game."

LPGA: The tour is off this week.

Champions: The tour is off this week.
