It is probably hard to read that headline and believe that a guy who played 42 rounds on the PGA Tour this year and broke 70 only seven times could have fired a round like that. Especially when the guy is John Daly.
Big John was just one of three players all week in the Hong Kong Open to shoot an eight-under 62, which he did in the final round to jump 38 spots to finish t-17. Daly fired two rounds of 68 to open the tournament but a 73 on Saturday, that included a four-over 40 on the back nine dropped him out of the hunt. His final round brought him right back in it.
"It feels really, really good. It feels like, 'Yeah, maybe I still can play a little bit,"' Daly said. "I wasn't expecting this much this week and to shoot one of probably my best rounds in three years, I'm pretty happy with it."
