Some exciting news For Calgary this morning as Golfer John Daly is coming to the Shaw Charity Classic.
Daly is a fan favourite mainly for his bad boy image which appeals to people as he seems like loads of fun.
And I can tell you from my own experience he is.
I saw John play at a Skins Game in Banff back in 2006. In a line up with Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Sergio Garcia; the 4 of them with all different personalities took to the course and it was a memorable couple of days.
I saw Daly do one of his famous long drives for it to go off the fairway and into the crowd not far from where I was standing and yes it hit a fan(but he was okay). I witnessed Daly tee off with the ball on a beer can…and yep, the ball went far and better yet and nice cold beer had been popped open and ready to be enjoyed.
The Shaw Charity Classic scored big time with this morning’s announcement and whether you’re a die hard golf fanatic or just want to see some entertainment this should ‘swing’ your decision into going. I would!
The Shaw Charity Classic will be at the Canyon Meadows Golf Course and runs from August 31st to September 4th. For more on this story and a history of John Daly, see the story below.
