John Daly Drank Mid-Round During A PGA Tour Event

We’ve always known John Daly enjoys an alcoholic beverage, or several, on occasion, so this latest news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. In a clip released from ESPN’s highly-anticipated ’30 for 30′ film starring the two-time major winner, Daly openly admitted that he drank during a PGA Tour round.

Long John starts off by stating he’s never consumed alcohol on the golf course during a PGA Tour event but does mention he’s shown up to rounds hungover or that he “might’ve been still drunk,” which was expected. Then, like the showman he is, he drops the fact he did indeed throw back a few beers mid-round one time during the L.A. Open.

“It was so slow and I played the back nine first,” Daly says. “I think I’m 2 or 3 over. I went in the locker room and downed like five beers, and I think I shot 4 under on the front nine. That is the only time I know that I ever drank during a round, and I played great. I played great that week. I finished strong.”

The film is scheduled to air on November 1.
