In what was an emotional week for John Daly and his family, Daly’s son, Little John, ended it with a victory.
Daly II won the International Junior Golf Tour’s Fall Kickoff event at Bishops Gate Golf Academy in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida, on Sunday. The 16-year-old Class of 2021 golfer birdied his final hole to shoot 4-under 68 and finish the 54-hole tournament at 12 under, a shot clear of Filip Jakubcik.
The triumph came just days after the 54-year-old Daly senior publicly revealed that he had been diagnosed with bladder cancer and that he underwent a procedure last month to remove the cancer. Daly added that doctors told him there was an “85% chance it comes back.”
