It's pretty safe to say that John Daly will never forget this weekend. 
For starters, he's over in Turkey, where he's playing in the Beko Classic, a 54-hole pro-am event that is sanctioned by the PGAs of Europe. And on Friday, he shot a 63 to grab the second-round lead in a field that also includes fellow major winner Darren Clarke.
That good news about Big John's game, however, pales to his great news off the course – Big John took to social media to reveal that he's engaged to his longtime girlfriend Anna Cladakis, who was a promotional director for Hooters when they met. They've been a couple since 2008, and Cladakis can often be spotted in Daly's gallery decked out in outfits that match his eye-popping Loudmouth Golf apparel.
This marriage will be the 48-year-old Daly's fifth, and the engagement comes as Daly's life is stable and his golf game is on the upswing. He made 10 cuts in 15 PGA Tour starts last season, and his tie for 29th at the recent Sanderson Farms Championship was his best result on the big tour since mid-2012.
Daly made no mention of a wedding date. We'll keep our eye out for that bit of news as we say congrats and best wishes to the happy couple.
