Fan favorite John Daly won the Insperity Invitational this weekend near Houston, his first win on the Champions Tour — the PGA Tour’s circuit for golfers at least 50 years old — and his first win of any kind in the United States since the 2004 Buick Invitational.

It was a throwback Daly performance, complete with his signature wild pants, three bogeys on the final three holes to make things more interesting, and topped off with a champagne shower.

On Monday, President Donald Trump took a moment to congratulate Daly on Twitter, calling him “a great guy who never gave up.”

Congratulations to @PGA_JohnDaly on his big win yesterday. John is a great guy who never gave up – and now a winner again!

After the round, Daly was asked how he would celebrate, and his answer was typical Daly.

I just want a Miller Lite,” Daly said. “That’s all I want.”

Here are the highlights from Daly’s final round, via the PGA Tour.
