John Daly continued his Renaissance in 2005, finishing in the money 16 times and losing two hard-fought playoffs to the No. 1 and 2 players in the world, Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh.
Daly began playing golf at the age of four, and has since risen to become a leader of the game. His professional career launched strong from the start when he was named 1990 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. In 2004, Daly won his first PGA Tour event since 1995, and the rebirth of his career continued in what many describe as his most consistent season ever with a career-best of 17 cuts in 22 starts.
Along with his wife and four children, Daly resides in Cordova, Tennessee, where he splits his time between Golf, his family, and his love of music. My Life, his recent album of largely biographical self-scribed tunes, features guest appearances by Darious Rucker, Willie Nelson, Johnny Lee, and Daron Norwood. In addition, Daly is heavily involved in fundraising for both the Make-a-Wish foundation and the Boys & Girls Club of America.
