GOLF is often considered a gentleman’s sport with old traditions and shirts.
But John Daly has broken that mold with his often hilarious antics and colorful outfits both on and off the golf course.
And he recently revealed one of his incredible stories when he told of a fan who footed his $27,000 (£22,000) bill at a strip club.
The two-time major winner spoke on Full broadcast podcastas he explained how a drunk fan had to pay his mega bill after missing the cut at the Masters.
He said: “Augusta when I missed the cut. I was very angry, I should have made the cut, but we are going to the.” [strip club].
“I had a friend, Shanae, she was beautiful, I loved her. And she says, ‘I’m going to the t***y bar with you’.”
“We went straight to the dungeon in downtown Augusta.”
He continued, “When I paid my bill for $27,000, there was a drunk sitting behind me.” [yelling] “John, how are you, man? I got your bill, don’t worry!”
“I said, ‘You do NOT want that tab, dude, no way!’ and he said, “Let me see.”
“[He saw it was for] $27,000 and he looked back and said, ‘I got you.'”
Daly gained a reputation on the PGA Tour for having a carefree attitude and bringing something special to the game.
And although he won both the PGA Championship and the Open, it was his life away from the fairways that often made headlines.
Sherrie Daly, the 57-year-old’s fourth ex-wife, revealed in her book “Teed Off: My Life as a Player’s Wife on the PGA Tour” that she had to fight off strippers who surrounded her husband during their days together.
