John Daly‘s body has to be some kind of medical miracle.
It seems like the 57-year old golfer pretty much survives on vodka, cigarettes and Hooters wings at this point, yet he’s still managed to maintain his golf game and be able to keep up with some of the best golfers in the world.
Now, is he winning any major championships? Probably not. Especially considering his warmup routine:
“Well, I hit balls for maybe 20 minutes, putt a little bit, smoke four or five cigarettes, drink three Diet Cokes and go to the first tee. Some days I won’t even go to the range.”
But given the fact that Daly has said he can drink 40 beers or 3 bottles of vodka in a day, the fact that he’s even able to stand up or function at this point has to be some kind of modern medical wonder that could help scientists find the cure for hangovers and alcoholism someday.
If you ask John Daly though, he already knows the cure for a hangover:
Now, you’ll notice in the video that as he’s giving his advice, Daly is on the course with an entire bottle of vodka in the cupholder of his cart as he pulls a heater out to light up. Like the finely tuned athlete that he is.
But you’ve gotta think that if there’s anybody who knows a thing or two about how to cure a hangover, it’s John Daly. Although he might not even get hangovers anymore. It doesn’t sound like he gives the alcohol enough time to ever leave his system, so he may just be in a constant state of intoxication at this point.
Either way, I feel like science could benefit from studying the John Daly method and why it’s worked for him all these years – and how he’s still standing after all that drinking.
