Golfer John Daly had a wild weekend in Las Vegas recently—but not of the kind for which he's infamous. On his way to last week's International tournament in Colorado, Daly and girlfriend Sherrie Miller (below, with Daly) stopped in Vegas. At the end of a whirlwind three days, Daly was not only $630,000 richer thanks to a little gambling luck, but also married. He and Sherrie, 25, a car saleswoman whom John recently met in Memphis, were hitched on July 29 in the Chapel at Bally's. "She made me sign a prenup, because she has all the money," joked Daly. So what about that $630,000? Said Daly, "I paid a lot of stuff off."

... Actor Dennis Quaid might want to watch his step around new girlfriend Shanna Moakler. You might recall the nasty split Moakler had with her fianc�, Oscar De La Hoya, last fall. She changed all the locks in their house and slapped De La Hoya with a $62.5 million palimony suit, claiming that she and their two-year-old daughter, Atiana Cecilia, were used "as props to promote his public image as a good husband and father." De La Hoya's lawyer has called the allegations "totally false."

... Allen Iverson's musical tastes aren't limited to rap. At his wedding to Tawanna Turner last Friday in Voorhees, N. J., Iverson escorted his mother to her seat to the Jackson 5's I'll Be There. After exchanging vows, he and Tawanna walked back up the aisle to Ease on Down the Road from The Wiz. The reception was decidedly more hip-hop. Half the 9,000-square-foot ballroom was curtained off to create a nightclub atmosphere, with records spun by DJ Kool.
