John Daly rolls into the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship this weekend looking for a measure of success on the PGA Tour.
The 51-year-old fan favorite will be making his third appearance of the season. He made the cut at the Safeway Open in early October, but a final-round 79 sent him tumbling down the leaderboard to a 72nd-place showing. He was unable to make the cut at the CareerBuilder Challenge with a much stiffer and competitive field. There shouldn't be a ton of pressure at Corales, and a made cut and top-50 showing is certainly within his grasp. For your final DFS spot, especially with a low-cost player, you can certainly do worse. Mar 21 - 10:24 PM

John Daly burned bright with a 6-under-par 32-33=65 to hit the 54-hole stage of the Made In Denmark T3 on 11-under 202, three shots back of the leader David Horsey at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.

It is a few weeks over five years since Daly posted a top five finish on either the PGA or European Tours (the 2012 Reno-Tahoe Open at Montreux), but he has the chance to break that half-decade long duck on Sunday after his Moving Day charge. He painted the front nine red, ticking 3, 4, 6 and 8. Two more par breakers came at 13 and 15 only for him to bogey the tiny par-3 17th for a second day running. No matter, he dialled his approach to 17 into 12’0" and drained the birdie putt. He sits alongside three players at 11-under, Gregory Havret, Chris Paisley and Robert Rock. Invite Daly won the Champions Tour’s Insperity Invitational in May and was T3 on the same circuit last week.

PGA TOUR Champions member and sponsor invite John Daly tees it up in his 15th Arnold Palmer Invitational, first since a missed cut in 2006.

The 50-year-old is a 5-time PGA TOUR winner in 521 career events and 2-time major champ. His most recent victory was in a 3-man playoff at the 2004 Buick Invitational (Torrey Pines). The Arkansas product ranks 157th in all-time earnings with $10.2M, but made no money last year in three starts and was 2-for-10 in 2015, posting his most recent top 10 at the 2015 Puerto Rico Open. He's in his second season on the senior circuit and overall is 14-for-18 with six top 25s but no top 10s.

John Daly takes his talents to Springfield, New Jersey, for the 98th PGA Championship.

Daly is fresh off a T54 at The Senior Open Championship last week, putting his record on the Champions Tour at 7-for-9, failing to crack the top 10. This week he heads to Baltusrol Golf Club where he already sports some history. In 1993 he finished T33 at the U.S. Open held here and returned for the 2005 PGA Championship to finish T74. His length and course experience will certainly help but if he's not cracking the top 10 on the Champions Tour then it's hard to imagine he finds a way into contention this week against a record-setting OWGR strength of field.

John Daly will tee it up in this week's Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play at Murcar Links Golf Club in Aberdeen.

The big-hitting American is part of the 64-man line-up playing straight knockout on the Scottish links and will take on Spain's Jorge Campillo in the opening round. Their duel gets underway at 09:35 local time on Thursday. Two-time Major winner Daly has played just twice since March, missing the cut in both the Greenbrier Classic and the Open Championship at St. Andrews. His round scores of 68-71-71-74 were decent enough so he could be a dangerous opponent for anyone in this format where inconsistency doesn't always hurt as much.

John Daly cracks the field at this week's Greenbrier Classic via a sponsor exemption.

Daly is 2-for-6 on the season with one top 10 (T10, Puerto Rico Open). He missed the cut the following week at the Valspar Championship by 11 shots on rounds of 81-73. That was four months ago. There's been no tournament golf for Daly since. The 49-year-old has played in each of the five prior editions of the Greenbrier Classic, finishing 77th in the 2010 inaugural, T12 in 2012, and T79/MDF last year (WD/2013, MC/2011). Daly, making just his seventh start of the season, enters the week 206th in the FedExCup standings, his only other paycheck came at the Sanderson Farms Championship (T29), early in the wraparound season. The five-time winner on the PGA TOUR and two-time major champion, recorded his last top 25 on TOUR at the 2012 PGA Championship (T18).

John Daly capped the Puerto Rico Open with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 to post 5-under 283.

When we last dropped in on Daly, he was lurking at the 36-hole mark. A third-round 72 was poised to be so much more as he linked four birdies early in the round before giving it all back coming home. Today, despite missing nine (of 14) fairways and six greens in regulation, he limited the damage to two bogeys while picking off five birdies. He walked off positioned T11 on the leaderboard as the final groups played their back nines. Daly's last top 20 on the PGA TOUR was a T18 at the PGA Championship. His last top 15 occurred the week prior in Reno where he tied for fifth. He already has a sponsor exemption into this week's Valspar Championship, but a top 10 today would allow tournament officials to hand it to someone else.

John Daly reached the halfway point of the Puerto Rico Open in 2-under-par 72-70=142 and sits five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Daly remains a beloved figure even as he approaches the age of 50 in April of 2016. But it's been some time since he's provided any value inside the ropes. His last top 25 was at the 2012 PGA Championship where he tied for 18th. Thus far at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, the five-time PGA TOUR winner has counterbalanced six bogeys with eight birdies. He's hit only 20 greens in regulation, but leads the field in driving distance. It's still handy to be able to poke it, especially when winds are up. Daly would be quite a story if he retains position or even makes a run on the weekend.

John Daly authored a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 on the host course in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Why not. He landed 15 greens and buried seven birdies, including a pair from 13-15 feet. In his post-round interview on Golf Channel, he was quite happy. "It's been a long time since I've played that well," Daly said. Indeed. The last time he went that low was a third-round 64 at last year's Sony Open in Hawaii where he placed T32. He'll attempt to keep the momentum alive on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club on Friday.

John Daly searches for his first cut made at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am since 1991 as he tees it up this week.

The fan favorite has now gone 10 straight starts at this event without playing the final round. That was after a T20 in his 1991 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am debut. Daly enters the week on Past Champions status but his chances this week are slim to none. While it's always fun to cheer for the bomber, gamers should look elsewhere when filling out their rosters.

John Daly sailed into the holidays on the emotional highs of his latest engagement to a romantic interest and a victory on the golf course.

Long-time girlfriend Anna Cladakis said yes to JD's marriage proposal on Dec. 4. He then secured victory in the unofficial Beko Classic in Turkey at 15-under-par 66-63=72=201 at Gloria Golf Club in Belek, one clear of defending champion Robert Coles. Daly's fellow Open champion Darren Clarke was among the other notables in the 16-man field; the Ulsterman tied for sixth at 11-under 205. Daly, who pocketed $8,000 for the title, had shared 29th place at the Sanderson Farms Championship for his only start of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. He chased that with a T25 at the Turkish Airlines Open. He'll be 49 years of age in late April, so save another wind on the PGA TOUR, we're just 16 months from relevant news on Daly inside the ropes in the U.S. via competition on the Champions Tour.

John Daly turns his attention to the Country Club of Jackson for this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

Daly is making the opposite travel plans than many TOUR pros this week. After playing in the World Celebrity Pro-Am, October 24th-26th, he now returns to the States. He is 7-for-9 at this event, but hasn't finished any better than T36, which came back in 1999. Daly has placed outside the top 50 in each of his last 11 PGA TOUR starts and will deal with a new course this week. Gamers should look elsewhere when selecting their fantasy squads.

John Daly enters the RBC Canadian Open ranked 204th in the FedExCup standings.

It looks like another lost year for JD on the PGA TOUR. While he's shown no commitment to PGA TOUR Q School in previous seasons, he has dropped down to play the occasional Tour event. It will be interesting to see if he can crack the top 200 in the FEC standings to earn a spot in the Tour Finals. An even larger question would be if he actually plays the Finals should he qualify.
Tue, Jul 22, 2014 09:34:00 PM

John Daly has been added to the published field of this week's Travelers Championship.

He started the week as the fifth alternate, but gained entry when Neal Lancaster withdrew. Daly has cashed in just three of eight starts, none going for a top 30, and he's outside the top 200 in both FedExCup points and earnings. He's only 22-and-a-half months from turning 50. What a birthday party that will probably be, but the real fun could be realized in the kind of impact he'd have on the Champions Tour.

The second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic was suspended for inclement weather at 2:15 p.m. CT.

Only 13 minutes of play were possible in between the restart and this latest delay, which is the third already of the tournament. John Daly was one of the last to receive a sponsor exemption and he's capitalized. With today's 3-under-par 34-33=67, he's 1-under 139 and will make the cut. He buried six birdies today, including a 13-yarder from the fringe at the par-3 11th hole, his second of the walk. The big fella also holed conversions of 26'9" and 12'10" at Nos. 3 and 6, but his longest on a green dropped for bogey from 35'1" at the par-4 first.
