John Daly turns 50 years old on Thursday, which makes him eligible for the PGA Tour Champions -- or the senior tour. It also netted him $150,000 from a fellow golfer.
Daly told a crazy story, as he typically does, about the time Fuzzy Zoeller bet him $150,000 that he wouldn't make it to 50.
"Fuzzy's going to owe me 150 grand,'' Daly told USA TODAY Sports. "I don't know if he remembers that bet or not, but I'll get that cash from him hopefully.''
According to Daly, the bet was made years ago at the Masters.
"I think it was Tuesday morning and we played nine holes and went to T-Bonz (restaurant) and had some lunch,'' Daly said. "Next thing I know, we were in the same clothes playing Wednesday at 7:30 in the morning and the par-3 tournament. We stayed through the whole nine (holes), drinking, having a good time and eating.
"Fuzzy said, 'I got 150 grand you're never going to make it to 50.'"
Unfortunately for Daly, the two never shook on the wager, which is obviously the only way to make a bet official. And because of that, Daly won't make Zoeller pay up 150 large ones.
"I'll just have him give me a free bottle of his vodka," Daly said. "That's about it."
