John Daly is 48 today which is great because it gives me an excuse to write a post about John Daly.
Long John hasn't done much this year -- two made cuts -- but he remains relevant because, well, folks still love him. If you don't believe me head on over to Google Trends and compare Daly with another top 15 golfer like, say, Justin Rose or Henrik Stenson.
In fact, I'll do it for you (Daly in blue, Rose in red, Stenson in yellow):
The craziest thing to me as I scanned the news for him is the annual reminder that he has more major wins than the following golfers:
Davis Love III
I mean the dude only has five PGA Tour wins total, and two of them are majors. That's wild.
Also, for fun, an immortal GIF:
Happy birthday, Johnny!
