John Daly is without a doubt one of the most well-known figures in the sport of golf today. The American professional is well-known for his long drives, and as a result, he is considered to be one of the game’s most powerful players. Daly is well-known for his life both on and off the golf course, and for this he deserves to be recognized.
John’s first major championship victory came in the 1991 PGA Championship, which marked his professional debut. Daly made the seven-hour drive from Memphis to Indianapolis to compete in the event, which he did without participating in a practice round.
He was given the opportunity to compete in the tournament after Nick Price withdrew from the competition just before the start of the first round. The tournament was held at the Crooked Stick Golf Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

David Daly is well-known for his penchant for gambling, and he also leads an extravagant lifestyle. But it was what he did after the event that people would remember for a long time to come. Bad weather forced the cancellation of the first round of the PGA Championship in 1991, and the course was evacuated as a result of the cancellation.
Nonetheless, Tom Weaver, a native of the area, was in attendance to witness the event with his friends. Unfortunately, while returning to his car, Weaver was struck by lightning, and he passed away on the spot as a result. Tom’s wife and two daughters were the only ones to survive him.
Daly was the overall winner of the competition, earning $230,000 in prize money. A few days after his victory, John wrote a check in the amount of $30,000 for Tom Weaver’s wife, Dee. His two daughters, Karen and Emily, will benefit from the money Daly contributed to a college fund for them.
Karen shared her thoughts on Daly’s gesture. As she put it, “For him to win this iconic tournament and then be so selfless as to share his winnings with us, it really shines a light on his true character and the things that he values the most.”
