Daly's Champions win a victory for fans, tour

Quick, name the last five winners on the PGA Tour Champions.

Ok, time’s up. And no, Bernhard Langer didn’t sweep every title.

But ask a casual golf fan about the over-50 circuit in the coming days, and he’ll let you know that John Daly is once again relevant after hanging on for a one-shot win at the Insperity Invitational.

The victory comes exactly a year after Daly made his Champions debut, and it gives the tour the much-needed jolt in the arm that his presence was expected to provide. Daly was surprisingly quiet last year, rarely contending and failing to quickly transition into success like many of his predecessors did upon turning the big 5-0.

But then came Sunday’s round outside Houston, and we were reminded how and why Daly has captivated audiences over the last 26 years.

Granted, it wasn’t pretty and didn’t exactly go according to plan. Few things with Daly ever do. He led the whole day but bogeyed each of his final three holes, essentially running out of time in his effort to hand the trophy to Tommy Armour III.
