John Daly is living his best life at the PGA Championship.
The 56-year-old two-time major champion arrived at Hooters on Thursday, where he smiled broadly while posing with Hooters girls outside the famous restaurant in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“So excited to stop by and see my @hooters family from Tulsa and spontaneously grab some wings!” Daly wrote on Instagram.
Daly was also seen cruising around the Southern Hills Country Club with a cigarette in hand in a golf cart, which the PGA allowed him to do because of osteoarthritis in his right knee. As usual, Daly, 56, wore brightly printed trousers and tinted sunglasses.
The pro has a longstanding relationship with Hooters, which was the focus of his Masters journey back in April.
Every year, Daly lines up in his large tent in the parking lot outside of Augusta National to sell merchandise to fans – a tradition the golfing legend has continued with the restaurant chain since 1997.
Daly started the first round of the PGA Championship Thursday strongly before suffering a late-round crash in the sweltering heat at Southern Hills Country Club.
Daly was the first group from the tee and shagged the first and fifth holes to propel his name to the top of the leaderboard, where he was positioned for most of the round.
But Daly, who won the 1991 PGA Championship, had four bogeys in the last five holes, including the last three holes. After Daly’s 2-over-72, he skipped post-round interviews.
Daly’s Hooters stop came days after news he was disqualified from the first PGA Tour Champions major of the year, Regions Tradition, for not signing his scorecard.
