Earlier this week, John Daly was seen living his best life, chilling with Hooters girls at Tracy Lawrence’s Second Annual Mission: Possible Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament in Nashville…

Like he didn’t have the major PGA Championship to prepare for in a couple days.

Of course, that’s John Daly’s personality, and he probably wouldn’t want it any other way.

With that being said, the two-time major championship winner is currently tied for fifth at two under par through 12 holes of this year’s PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Needless to say, the Hooters girls might’ve been a good luck charm for him thus far.

The best part about Daly being in contention at some point of a golf tournament, is that a shit ton of wild stories resurface from his full throttle lifestyle, and today is no exception.

Will Brinson, Sr. NFL Writer for CBS Sports, recalled the first time he ever followed John Daly during the 2008 Wyndham Championship in one of the most glorious Twitter threads I’ve seen in a while.

Of course, Daly had to make a stop at the local Greensboro Hooters to sign autographs and hangout, as he does.

After watching the PGA Tour star for a full 18 holes, Brinson tallied up the following notes…

Daly consumed:

21 cigarettes

12 Diet Cokes

6 packs of Peanut M&M’s

0.0 ounces of water

Keep in mind, this was in the middle of August in Greensboro, North Carolina, which is considered to be one of the armpits of the Carolinas.

I would’ve been crawling down the back nine, waving the white flag if I were in Daly’s shoes.

Nevertheless, this is just further proof that the tour pro is an absolute unit.
