Over the decades, golf fans have been blessed with several items named after their favorite golfer. From Arnold Palmer‘s drink to Ben Hogan’s cap, iconic golfers have delivered many symbolic commodities for many years. However, John Daly, who is adored by the golf world, has also announced a product named after him which will be released soon.

Though Daly may be past his playing days in the sport, any headline regarding him still gets the most attention from golf fans. The two-time Major winner has earned the reputation of a ‘Bad Boy’ off the course while depicting great skills on the course.

Nonetheless, despite his bad-boy persona, the legendary golfer has diminished his controversies outside the sport. However, his schtick of smoking still exists, which eventually led him to the big decision earlier today.

While he is still recovering from his knee replacement surgery, Daly has been making big moves outside the sport. In recent weeks, he was spotted enjoying food at his favorite restaurant, Hooters. However, the 56-year-old’s latest announcement reveals how he has been making himself busy while he recovers.

San Giuseppe Cigars, along with Major League Cigars, announced the partnership for producing premium handmade Dominican Cigars. The soon-to-be-launched product is named after none other than the two-time Major winner, naming it ‘John Daly Cigar’.
