Winning majors and other tournaments are not the only talents the American golfer John Daly possesses. He is also a gifted singer. And the golfer proved once again that he hasn’t lost his passion for singing by performing recently at a charity golf event.

The two-time major champion enjoyed the Saturday singing with the famous American singer Kane Brown. He celebrated his day at The Ally Challenge by singing Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door by Bob Dylan. Notably, the golfer performed the song in front of hundreds of people.

The Ally Challenge is an official PGA Tour Champions event played especially to benefit the local charities in the greater Flint area. The 54-hole tournament featured 78 Senior golfers on the Tour Champions and offered $2 million as purse money.

The Challenge also holds a Celebrity Shootout yearly. And the officials have announced that the multi-platinum singer/songwriter Kane Brown is the newest member to join the field. The singer was also the headliner of the fifth annual Community Concert presented by Ally. Daly and Brown shared the stage at the concert.

Since turning 50, Daly has been playing mostly on the PGA Tour Champions event rather than PGA Tour events. He has only attended the PGA and Open Championships on the regular Tour this season. On the other hand, the golfer has attended 10+ events on the Senior Tour.
