Daly came on the Conan O’Brien show way back in 2002 where he spoke a lot of golf and his fashion choices too!
O’Brien said that Daly has a very different approach to golf, which is completely different from any other professional golfer. To which, Daly laughed and they quickly started discussing Daly not wanting to exercise, playing his game without wanting to overanalyze his swing.
The two then ended up talking about how Daly is against a dress code in golf, where Daly said “Grip it and hit it, I mean, I feel like somebody’s got a thumb in my throat when I wear one of them things,” Daly said while pointing at O’Brien’s tie. “I really do.” When O’Brien asked him about the dress code on his personal golf course, Daly said, “If you wear a tie you’re kicked out.”
John Daly has a company called JD Designs, which designs golf courses. One of its projects was the Sevillano Links at Rolling Hills Casino in Corning, California.
