John Daly will likely miss the cut at the PGA Championship, but that doesn’t mean he’s not enjoying himself in Tulsa, Oklahoma, during the first two rounds of the major.
On Thursday, Daly was the leader in the tournament for a brief moment after he birdied the first and fifth holes to start the event. It was enough for golf fans to cheer him in through the event. He finished the first round shooting a 72 –just off the lead.

According to TMZ Sports, Daly had dinner at a local Hooters restaurant and hit up a casino. He spotted with a pack of cigarettes and a Diet Coke while he plays the slots.
He told TMZ, however, he didn’t have any luck.
“The slots weren’t hitting,” he said.
In Round 2 of the PGA Championship, Daly shot a 76, finishing 6-over par for the round. When he finished up he was below the cut line, and it appeared his weekend was going to be over before it really got started.
He was 8-over par for the tournament after the second round.
As Daly was going through his first round, a story about him went viral on social media. CBS Sports NFL writer Will Brinson recalled a time he was covering Daly for the 2008 Wyndham Championship.
