Everyone knows that golfer John Daly has a few vices. It seems that gambling may be his biggest vice.

In a new interview with Yahoo's Graham Bensinger, Daly claims he lost approximately $55 million between 1991 and 2007.

When asked how something like that could happen, Daly offered a simple, one-word answer: "stupidity."

The golfer was also asked if he had any regrets about blowing away all that money.

"I did it. I moved on from it. I had a lot of fun doing it," he said, before explaining that it really just breaks down to only $3.1 million per year.
