GOLF: The enigmatic John Daly has ended a 13-year title drought by claiming his first victory on the 50-and-over Champions Tour at the Insperity Invitational in Texas.
Wearing red, white and blue pants, the man nicknamed The Wild Thing finished at 14-under-par 202 at The Woodlands outside Houston, edging fellow Americans Kenny Perry and Tommy Armour III by a stroke..
"It's awesome," Daly told Golf Channel after being showered in champagne. "Hey, a win's a win. I hung in there and did the best I could. It wasn't pretty at the end but I got it done. That's all that matters."
The 51-year-old, who became eligible for the Champions Tour last April, had not won on the PGA Tour since 2004, when losing a playoff to Tiger Woods at the 2005 WGC-American Express Championship.
Daly won five times on the PGA Tour, including two major championships - the 1991 PGA and 1995 British Open.
