Daly revealed that he was eight years old when he got drunk with his brother for the first time while his elder brother was nine.
John Daly said that he and his brother were helping out his father in making Muscadine Wine. It was during this time that Daly told his brother, “ f*** we’re making it, we might as well drink it.”
After finishing a jar of fresh-made Wine, Daly and his brother Jamie were nervous if their mother would make out if they were drunk. So his brother Jamie hid in his closet while Daly hid under the kitchen sink.
In the documentary produced by ESPN, ‘Hit It Hard’ Daly said, “I never had any alcohol on the golf course that I remember, except for one time, and that was the L.A. Open.”
Daly once humorously claimed that he would win every week on Tour if he could drink during his rounds. Many people believe that John Daly would have achieved a lot if he did not have such addictive drinking habit
