Daly inks sponsor deal with All Sport
Thursday, June 4, 2009
AUSTIN, Texas — A week before his return to the PGA Tour after a six-month suspension, John Daly has signed an endorsement deal with a sports drink company.
Daly agreed to a multiyear deal with All Sport and will display its Big Red brand on his golf bag.
“Corporate America believes in his comeback,” agent Bud Martin said Thursday.
The PGA Tour suspended Daly for a series of off-course events that brought negative publicity, including an overnight stay in a North Carolina jail to get sober last fall.
He is to play in a U.S. Open qualifier on Monday in Memphis, Tenn., then compete in the St. Jude Championship.
