John Daly took home his first PGA Tour Champions victory Sunday when he won the Insperity Invitational, and he received congratulations from an unexpected source Monday morning.
President Donald Trump sent a congratulatory tweet to the two-time major champion after his one-stroke victory on the senior circuit.
Daly, who hadn’t won a PGA Tour event since the 2004 Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines, thanked the president with a tweet of his own.
The 51-year-old finished the tournament at 14-under-par and held off Kenny Perry and Tommy Armour despite closing with three straight bogeys.
And Daly celebrated snapping his 13-year drought as only he could.
We hope to see Daly in contention at a PGA Tour event soon, as he’s one of the most talented and entertaining players of his generation.
