Now that John Daly is on the PGA Tour Champions, the 50-plus circuit is turning into one big party.
OK, not quite, but the 50-year-old, two-time major winner had some fun at the end of his run on Sunday in his first senior major, the Regions Tradition in Alabama.
Daly reached the par-5 finishing hole at Greystone Golf & Country Club in two, and then ended his tournament in style by making the eagle putt. As the crowd applauded Daly's finish, he turned to the crowd in the stands and hospitality suites, signaling if they could throw him down a beverage. We're not sure if he meant a Diet Coke, a John Daly or another drink, but it's that kind of post-round celebration that seems a whole lot more exciting for many fans than the tame, muted 72nd-hole ra-ra.
This kind of reaction is why we all love Big John. https://t.co/l8JNnzRSic

The eagle wrapped up a final round of 2-over 74 for Daly, who finished in a tie for 15th place, 12 shots back of dominant winner Bernhard Langer.
