PGA Champions Tour
What a weekend it was for the charismatic and swashbuckling John Daly on the PGA Champions Tour, after sealing his first win on the tour after 12 months of trying, the win at the Insperity Invitational at The Woodlands in Texas, after waiting 13 years since his last win it couldn’t have come at a better time for him.
Since joining the Champions Tour for seniors he hasn’t really had it his own way since he made his debut at the same tournament exactly 12 months ago, looking at his reaction after winning the tournament everyone will get the feeling that it will only be a matter of time until he follows this win with another one on the PGA Champions Tour.
Earning $322,500 for the win and shooting a 3 day total of 14 under the card, his final round 69 certainly sat well with his 68 and 65 in his opening two rounds, the three-round tally was enough to beat Kenny Perry by one stroke at the end of play.
During the last 12 months since his debut on the PGA Champions Tour he has not finished in the 10 of any of his previous 21 starts, so this win makes up for some pretty inconsistent and wild play from the wild man himself. His comments at the end of the round included “These finishing holes at Woodlands are extremely difficult and my iron play wasn’t the best but I hung in there” – that sort of sums it up really after starting the final round with a slender 1 shot lead, but after the first hole ‘eagle’ it sort of settled him down and left him with a few shots in reserve just in case!
Having won the PGA Championship and the Open Championship in his illustrious career, many of his golfing fans around the world will be hoping that this win will settle him down for more victories on the PGA Champions Tour, if he can dial in his irons as he done with his driver and putter I am sure many more victories will follow.
