‘This guy is living all our dreams’

GOLF cult icon John Daly was pictured trying his luck on slot machines just hours after his opening PGA Championship round.

The 1991 champion, 56, stole the show on the first day of the tournament at Southern Hills.

Daly began his round with three birdies in the first nine holes, racing into the top 10.

But it was his outrageous outfits that really caught the eye, with the Californian chain-tuxedo decked out in crazy floral SKULL trousers.

The back-nine wasn’t as successful for the two-time Major winner who eventually closed out on +2.

However, he still had time to kick with a trip to Hooters, where he gobbled up chicken wings and posed with the staff.

And eagled-eyed punters at a local casino were stunned to see the golfing star chancing his luck on the slot machines.

The image quickly went viral on a day when Daly caught the imagination of the public with his carefree attitude and bizarre on-course rituals.

One wrote: “This guy is living all our dreams.”

And another added: “This block is a role model to all.”

Daly munched his way through several bags of M & Ms during his round, smoked 21 cigarettes and topped it off with copious amounts of Diet Coke.

And he continued his unique diet at the casino, with a packet of cigarettes and his trusty can of choice perched by him.

One fan who noticed the drink commented: “Consistency is the key to golf.”

And another said: “Two packs of cigs and a Diet Coke sitting on the machine. What a legend.”

Daly has battled cancer in recent years and revealed in March that it is now “benign”.

He had a reputation as a hellraiser off the course and that was backed up by a crazy story from pal Pat Perez.

The PGA Tour star revealed how Daly once left hospital just SIX hours after having a stroke – to return to a house party and continue drinking.
