John Daly’s lost a lot of money gambling — he estimates to the tune of $55 million.
Daly made that estimation in an interview with Graham Bensinger, but did not appear particularly upset with the massive losses — losing $90 million compared to $35 million won from 1991-2007.
“I should say I regret it,” Daly said on the program “In Depth With Graham Bensinger.” “But I did it, I move on from it, I had a lot of fun doing it.”
The two-time major winner divulged he has spent whole days in a casino gambling, at times playing a full table of blackjack hands at $5,000-$15,000 per hand. He also mentioned having played a $5,000 per pull slot machine at the Wynn casino in Las Vegas.
In his PGA Tour career, Daly has made $10.1 million.
