Daly is known to be a frequent visitor of Hooters. He also signs autographs and sells merch from a Hooters parking lot during Masters week. Moreover, the golfer and his son, John Patrick Daly, had recently signed with the American restaurant chain and became its official ambassadors. 

The father-son duo signed the deal after they won the 2021 PNC Championship, in which Tiger Woods and his son Charlie Axel Woods won second place. Little John, a collegiate golfer, will star in Hooters’ social media campaigns. Meanwhile, his father will sport Hooters apparel and use Hooters orange golf bag with a retro Hooters logo on the Tour Champions events. 

After signing with the brand, Daly visited the chain in Nottingham for the first time. And he found Hooters as one of the landmarks of the England city. 

Fans’ reaction to Daly’s Twitter post 

Daly lives a free-spirited lifestyle. Unlike other athletes, he eats fast foods most of the time and drinks diet coke instead of water. Thus, when a post in which he was seen enjoying the hospitality of the Nottingham Hooters, his fans were more than happy for him. And they expressed it through their comments. 

As a man who enjoys the simplest things in life, John Daly can be seen enjoying his time at the American restaurant chain. He didn’t get to make a great memory in the UK a couple of weeks ago at the Open. However, his fans loved that he got to make it now!
