John Daly Will Once Again Sell Merchandise Outside Augusta National, Not Play
The last time John Daly played in the Masters was 2006. The last time he made the cut at the season's opening major was 2002. The last time Daly has been seen outside Augusta National? Well, '09! That's because at this point in his career, "Being John Daly" means sitting outside the gates of the most famous golf course in the country hawking any and all gear he can get his hands on. And he's back!
Via Wei Under Par via Daly's Twitter:
So—IS EVERYONE gonna stop by my Merchandise Booth the week of the Masters! Will have all new merchandise & I’ll be there— BEING JOHN DALY.
I’m not playing the Masters-but i’ll be there promoting my “Grip It & Rip It” & Lion brand gear—so please ya’ll stop by & still cheer me on
I'm not exactly sure what he means by "cheer him on." "SELL THAT SHIRT! SELL THAT SHIRT!"
As you probably know, Daly used to set up shop at the Hooters directly across the street from Magnolia Lane, but after he ran into some trouble at Hooters back in 2008 (while you're clicking Hooters stories, check out the one where my buddy Brinson tries to get an autograph from him) he decided to move locations.
He will now be outside a jewelry store (of course he will be) trying to give away whatever he can during Masters week.
