John Daly will likely miss the PGA Championship cut, but that doesn’t mean he’s not having fun in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in the first two rounds of the major.
On Thursday, Daly was the tournament leader for a brief moment after birdieing the first and fifth holes to start the event. It was enough for golf fans to encourage him throughout the event. He finished the first round shooting a 72 – just wide of the lead.

Daly had three birdies and five bogeys that day.
Between rounds one and two, Daly was spotted enjoying all that the surrounding area has to offer.

According to TMZ Sports, Daly dined at a local Hooters restaurant and hit a casino. He spotted with a pack of cigarettes and a Diet Coke while playing slot machines.
He told TMZ, however, that he was unlucky.
“Slot machines weren’t hitting,” he said.
In round two of the PGA Championship, Daly shot a 76, finishing 6 over par for the round. When he finished, he was below the cut line, and it looked like his weekend was going to end before it really started.
He was 8 over par for the tournament after the second round.
As Daly went through his first lap, a story about him went viral on social media. CBS Sports NFL writer Will Brinson recalled a time when he covered Daly for the 2008 Wyndham Championship.

Brinson tweeted that he had never seen Daly put on an ounce of water in a practice round before the tournament.
