Trump congratulates 'great guy' John Daly on his first win in 13 years

Fan favourite John Daly won the¬†Insperity Invitational this weekend near Houston, his first win on the Champions Tour — the PGA Tour’s circuit for golfers at least 50 years old — and his first win of any kind in the United States since the 2004 Buick Invitational.

It was a throwback Daly performance, complete with his signature wild pants, three bogeys on the final three holes to make things more interesting, and topped off with a champagne shower.

On Monday, President Donald Trump took a moment to congratulate Daly on Twitter, calling him “a great guy who never gave up.”

After the round, Daly was asked how he would celebrate, and his answer was typical Daly.

“I just want a Miller Lite,” Daly said. “That’s all I want.”

Here are the highlights from Daly’s final round, via the PGA Tour.
