John Daly is one of the most nonchalant golfers in the world. He has been a fan-favorite and a prominent name in the golfing world. He is famous for doing peculiar things on and off the course. And recently, we saw a video of Daly doing an incredible stunt. 

In the video published, Daly was giving lessons to a guy about doing a belly flop in the water. The guy jumped first. He climbed a chair and then did a belly flop, which means landing in the water on your stomach. However, Daly was not impressed. Therefore, he demonstrated how to do a belly flop to the guy and screamed, “That’s a f**king belly flop!”
