We all know that John Daly is a legend in the world of golf. But a recent video floating around on social media suggests that he has a mean jump shot as well.
For those who haven’t noticed, there are a lot of good things going on nowadays at the University of Arkansas. The basketball team is back to being competitive. They made it to the Elite Eight this past March, marking the first time that has happened since 1995. Not only that but the football team is off to a 3-0 start to the 2021 season as well under second-year coach Sam Pittman. He has them ranked in the AP Top 25 for the first time in five years. It is safe to say that spirits are high right now in Fayetteville.
All of that must have John Daly feeling pretty dang good. After all, that’s the same college that he attended. The two-time major champion was a part of the Razorbacks golf team from 1984 to 1987. And to add the cherry on top, Jon Daly’s son, known as Little John, has already signed a letter of intent to play for the Razorbacks next fall.
On Monday, John Daly and Little John made a trip down to his alma mater for a campus visit. It looks like they made great use of their time — the Daly men ran into the head coaches for both the football and basketball teams. As a matter of fact, the father and son were even able to attend an actual basketball practice. And thanks to that, we now know that John Daly has some Steph Curry-like range on the hardwood.
He posted a video of him hitting a 3-pointer from way downtown.
“1st take in slides..let’s go,” Daly captioned the video.
John Daly Throws Out First Pitch at St. Louis Cardinals
September has definitely been an eventful month for John Daly. The legendary golfer was recently chosen to throw out the first pitch at a St. Louis Cardinals game. And he threw the pitch in a way that only John Daly would.
Daly made his way to the Cardinals game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Everyone knows that Daly is a big-time Cardinals fan, so you can imagine that he was pretty stoked to throw out the first pitch at the game. He was even rocking a number 91 jersey in reference to him winning the PGA Championship at Crooked Stick back in 1991. Fans who were at the game got to witness a first pitch for the ages. Take a look at the video down below:
