It took 22 starts, but John Daly is now a winner on the PGA Tour Champions.
Daly, 51, won the Insperity Invitational on Sunday at The Woodlands (Texas) Country Club. Despite closing his tournament with three straight birdies, Daly shot a closing 3-under 69 to finish at 14 under, a shot ahead of Tommy Armour III and Kenny Perry.
Daly began his day with eagle at the par-5 first hole. He added five birdies on the round. But he bogeyed Nos. 16 and 17, and led by just a shot late in the round. After Armour bogeyed his final hole, Daly had a two-shot lead entering the closing par 4.
Walking down the fairway, Daly bent down and kissed the grass, which had a large Arnold Palmer umbrella logo painted on it. He made bogey on the hole, but it was enough to close out the win.
