ORLANDO – John Daly putted so poorly on Saturday that when his son walked off the 18th environmentally friendly at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, he questioned a mate, “Teach my dad how to putt, please.”
John II wasn’t kidding but his pricey previous-dad, 55, figured things out with his brief stick on Sunday as Staff Daly poured in 13 birdies and an eagle en route to taking pictures 15-under 57 in the two-particular person scramble structure.
“Hit 7 naturals right now, so I aided the workforce now,” Major John stated of his rediscovered placing prowess.
The 36-hole complete of 27-below 117 was two strokes far better than Tiger and Charlie Woods, breaking the previous tournament scoring report set by Davis Like III/Dru Adore in 2018 by 1 stroke, and acquired Staff Daly the purple-leather-based Willie Park winner’s belts.
“He’s always wanted to gain people belts,” stated Daly’s longtime girlfriend, Anna Cladakis.

John II is a freshman on the University of Arkansas golf staff, his father’s alma mater, and he was decked out in a Razorbacks golf shirt, hat and belt buckle. The 18-year-outdated has been enjoying in this celebration considering the fact that he was 12.
“To watch him grow up to do the factors he could do with a golf ball,” the very pleased papa explained, “and a swing that’s so great, but saving my you-know-what from putting yesterday, and he played phenomenal and I helped him with a couple of photographs right here and there.”
Team Daly put together to birdie just about every gap except two on the inward 9 (Nos. 15, 17). Daly trapped his method at 16 limited for the birdie that would be the difference.
“We are employed to hitting like wedges up there, and I hit a terrible travel,” Big John reported. “I strike a 7-iron in there about a foot and a 50 % and it was a birdie there. I imagine that was a massive, huge turning stage for this 7 days suitable there.”
“When he produced that, we knew it was essentially about because I checked the leaderboard to see what Tiger finished at,” John II claimed.
Group Daly experienced completed inside the leading-10 in all 6 appearances at the PNC Championship, with a tie for 2nd in 2018, but had never ever gained the belts they so desperately preferred.
“Every year we usually attempt and acquire but this was the calendar year just liked it and staying listed here actively playing with him in the holidays,” John II explained. “I guess that is what comes about, when you earn.”
