Big John Daly Engaged to Caddie and Wins the Beko
‘Long’ John Daly and his caddie have engaged to marry. This isn’t an expose’ on a professional athlete revealing an alternate lifestyle in the way you sexists out there are thinking. John’s caddie is a female and she’s been on his bag (golf bag) for more than 5 years. John will attempt the sanctity of marriage for an impressive 5th time which is no small task considering some of the beauts he’s already made vows with.
Given the sheer volume of wives Daly has shot through in his relatively short lifetime, the bigger news today is the win he grabbed over the weekend. Daly corralled his first professional victory in 10 years at the Beko Classic. Here’s the storybook finish:
Thursday: ‘Big John’ announces engagement to Anna Cladakis
Friday: Daly fires a second round, 9-under 63 to be a contender on the weekend
Saturday: Daly holds on to the win by a single shot after a 72 in Saturday’s finale.
JD would wing on home with his first professional victory in a decade, albeit in a 3rd rate Turkish Bath House, PGA Europe event. Daly’s last win was at the 2004 Buick Invitational on the PGA Tour. With the win in hand and his caddie locked in for the foreseeable future, perhaps John is making a push to overtake Phil and Amy as the coveted first couple in golf. We doubt it, but if Mayor Ford and his wife are the first couple of Toronto, anything is possible.
