John Daly Net Worth 2022
According To Uswhispers Professional golfer John Daly has a net worth of over $2 million. But John has lost tens of millions of dollars over the years due to a terrible gambling problem and multiple divorces, which have reduced his net worth significantly. We'll talk about this in more detail later on.
John Patrick Daly was born on April 28th of 1966 in Carmichael, California. Raised in a middle-class household, John moved about frequently across various southern states as a child. He first started playing golf when the family settled in Arkansas. Inspired by Jack Nicklaus, Daly began to take his golf career more seriously and won a number of championships as a teen.
John Daly Career
John Daly turned professional in 1987 and won his first victory at the Missouri Open of that year. In 1990, he won the Ben Hogan Utah Classic. By 1991, he had won his first PGA Championship.
This caused a widespread frenzy in the golf community, as Daly was a serious underdog. A solid season in 1992 followed, and in 1993 he placed third in the Masters Tournament. Unfortunately, Daly was suspended in 1994 for walking off the course mid-round. This caused him to enter rehab for alcohol abuse.
In 1995, John won the Open Championship before a long period of issues throughout the next five years. His drinking habits were beginning to catch up with him, and it was affecting his performances on the golf course.
According To Uswhispers
In 2001, Daly won the BMW International Open, sparking a comeback. More wins came throughout the next two years before John truly marked his return to glory with a win at the Buick Invitational in 2004. After a disappointing 2005, Daly returned to somewhat disappointing form throughout the next nine years.
