Little about John Daly’s life has been mundane. When the two-time major winner was chosen to throw out the first pitch at a St. Louis Cardinals game, it follows suit that the experience would be unique.
Daly was on hand as the Cardinals hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers, a move that aligned with the PGA Tour Champions Ascension Charity Classic at Norwood Hills Country Club.
A noted Cards fan, Daly was eager to get the opportunity to take part in the ceremony, even wearing a jersey with the number 91, in homage to his winning the PGA Championship at Crooked Stick in 1991. A portion of each ticket that sold for the contest was donated to the Gateway PGA REACH Foundation, which positively impacts the lives of youth, military, and diverse populations by enabling access to PGA Professionals and the game of golf.
Fans who attended were treated to a Daly bobblehead and then saw the Arkansas product throw this pitch:
