John Daly Credits Donald Trump for Having 'One of the Greatest Days' after Teeing off with the President

Unlike several of his colleagues, John Daly is a big fan of Donald Trump. The golfer took to his Twitter page to ‘gush’ over the President after meeting him at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. 

On Monday, John Daly, who has five PGA Tour titles to his name, shared a rare image on his Twitter page.

The 53-year-old golfer shared a photo which captured him with the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, and it was apparent he was bedazzled!.

The photo was taken at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey. It showed Daly and Trump pose with a wide smile as they stood behind a golf cart.

The golfer donned a blue shirt and flag-designed short while Trump spotted a red face cap, white shirt, black trousers and a white pair of trainers.

The President had his signature thumbs-up pose in the photo. Daly shared the post alongside an adorning caption which read:

“I’m proud to be an AMERICAN, especially w/this man leading our country!”

He continued:

“One of the greatest days of my life! Thx you for a great day #potus #dad ….you are the best! @realDonald trump”

and followed it up with a list of hashtags:

“#americafirst #peoplefirst #greatest #leader #of #our #country #proud #American #MAGA”

The post which ‘lauded’ the President a lot won’t come as much of a surprise. Popculture revealed that the pair had been friends since 1992 and Daly is a staunch Republican.

Daly has always been outspoken of his affection for Donald Trump and defended him when protests were planned in one of his golf courses in 2017.
