The two-time major championship winner is among the renowned name in golf. Maybe he is more famous for doing off-the-course than playing competitive golf. Apart from being a five-time PGA Tour winner, the American professional is also a father to three lovely kids. His three children include John Patrick Daly II, Sierra Lynn Daly, and Shynah Hale Daly.

Shynah is the eldest of all the three and was born on 10th June 1992. Followed by Sierra, born on 1st June 1995, and the youngest of them all, Little John, was born on 23rd July 2003.
