VIDEO: John Daly regrips club, jokes about getting high from grip glue


Don't ever say PGA Tour pros can't do things for themselves. They may be catered to, sucked up to and the like for their attention and time, but they didn't get this far not knowing how to make a golf club work for them.

Two-time major winner John Daly showed that ahead of the Open Championship this week by taking on the Regrip Challenge posed by PGA professional Rick Shiels. The challenge is simple: With an ungripped club in the vice, properly apply a new grip and get it on the ground in as little time as possible.

The 1995 Open champion gets the job done in a fairly remarkable 27 seconds, hampered by a slow epoxy well.

Daly remarks on how well he did considering it's not his full-time job to regrip clubs, then jokes if he can leave the equipment trailer to get high on the regrip glue because that's some potent stuff.
