John Daly Net Worth: John Daly is an American professional golfer who has a net worth of $1 million. John Daly was born April 28, 1966 in Carmichael, California. Daly is known for his driving distance off the tee (earning him the nickname "Long John"), his non-country club appearance and attitude and his rough-and-tumble personal life. His two greatest on-course accomplishments were his "zero to hero" victory in the 1991 PGA Championship and his playoff victory over Costantino Rocca in the 1995 Open Championship. Daly turned pro in 1987 and earned his first pro victory soon after at the 1987 Missouri Open. He joined the PGA TOUR in 1991 and won the PGA Championship that same year. Daly's victory gained quite a bit of media attention due to the fact that he was the ninth and final alternate for the event; the eight other alternates couldn't make it. John, playing in only his third major, secured a three-stroke victory, earning him PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year honors in 1991. He won the British Open in 1995 in a playoff with Italian golfer Costantino Rocca at St. Andrews. Daly is the only eligible, two-time major winner never selected to play in the Ryder Cup. John Daly went on to win the Buick Invitational in 2004 and earned the PGA TOUR Comeback Player of the Year distinction that year. Daly is also known for his involvement with many charities, including several in northwest Arkansas. His golfing swing is a flowing, self-taught swing built for raw power and distance. Daly takes his golf club back much farther past parallel on his backswing by extreme coiling of his arms and shoulders, which creates very fast club-head speed on his downswing. His unique golf swing, however, has also contributed to his inconsistent performance during golf tournaments, since nearly perfect timing is required for proper execution of such a powerful swing. No stranger to controversy, Daly has had his share during his golfing career, including breaking a spectator's camera at Royal Sydney's ninth hole at the 2008 Australian Open. He was given a suspended fine by Golf Australia and, in an unsportsmanlike move, he walked off the course during his first round at the 2011 Australian Open after hitting all of his golf balls into the water.
