Normally reporting on John Daly is as lighthearted as golf journalism gets, but this one is a little touchy.

Daly told The Golf Channel's Rex Hoggard that his email, Twitter and Facebook accounts had all been hacked into, and his girlfriend and two daughters were getting threatening messages sent their way by the culprit that forced them to close their accounts.

"(Daly’s girlfriend Anna Cladakis) got on Facebook and the guy was talking to her and says, 'If you want this back you know what to do. I will get you and I will get your daughters. I’ll steal their identity.'" Daly said in an interview that will air Saturday on Golf Central at 1:20 a.m. (ET). "Other things that were said scared me to death."

The FBI is currently investigating the situation, taking hold of Cladakis' computer to check and see exactly who the person is that hacked into Daly's accounts.

Currently, both John Daly's Facebook fan page and Twitter accounts have been deactivated.

As for Daly's golf game, he currently sits at six-under at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open, looking to jump up a few spots on the money list before the final event of the season concludes in three weeks.
