Watch John Daly's son sink a clutch birdie putt to win a junior golf tournament

December 12, 2017

The golf world got a good look at John Daly II last December during the PNC Father/Son Challenge. "Little John" showed off some solid pop, a great touch, and most importantly, some serious swagger.

A year later, nothing has changed.

On Sunday, Little John, now 14, won his latest International Junior Golf Tournament in dramatic fashion. Daly got into a five-way playoff thanks to a strong final round at Harbour Town and won on the first extra hole with a birdie. Check it out:

Nice putt. Nicer fist pump.

Golf fans will get to see more of Little John, who also made his first hole-in-one this summer, this week when he teams up with his dad again at the PNC Father/Son Challenge at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando. Here's a look at the field of 20 two-men teams:

Angel Cabrera / Angel Cabrera Jr.
Stewart Cink / Connor Cink
John Daly / Little John Daly
David Duval / Nick Karavites
Nick Faldo / Matthew Faldo
Fred Funk / Taylor Funk
Retief Goosen / Leo Goosen
Padraig Harrington / Paddy Harrington
Lee Janzen/ Connor Janzen
Tom Kite / David Kite
Bernhard Langer/ Jason Langer
Tom Lehman / Thomas Lehman
Justin Leonard / Larry Leonard (Dad)
Jack Nicklaus / Gary Nicklaus Jr.
Greg Norman / Greg Norman Jr.
Mark O'Meara / Shaun O'Meara
Jerry Pate / Wesley Pate
Nick Price / Greg Price
Lee Trevino / Daniel Trevino
Lanny Wadkins / Travis Wadkins

The Dalys tied for ninth in their first appearance in the event that pairs major champions with their offspring. David Duval and stepson Nick Karavites are the defending champs.

Big John, of course, won the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 British Open, but Little John is quickly making a name for himself on the course. And if LJ keeps rolling in clutch putts, he might just have another trophy to share in school at show-and-tell time on Monday.
