John Daly turned 50 last week and begins his PGA TOUR Champions career at the Insperity Invitational in Texas this weekend.
As David Climer writes on the PGATOUR.COM, "With all due respect, though, it is Daly whose arrival has created the most stir on the PGA TOUR Champions. Where fans are concerned, he is the biggest name to hit the tour since Fred Couples in 2010." Click here to read the full article.

PGA TOUR and it's Tournaments Set Record for Charitable Giving
Surpassed $160 Million in 2015
The PGA TOUR and its tournaments generated a record $160 million for charity in 2015; marking the first time they surpassed the $150 million threshold in a single year. This total includes donations made by tournaments on the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions, Web.com Tour, Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada, PGA TOUR China and PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.
With the announcement, the all-time total donated to charity is $2.3 billion since the first-ever charitable contribution of $10,000 was made by the 1938 Palm Beach Invitational. Of that total, more than $1.3 billion has come since the TOUR surpassed the $1-billion plateau in 2005. The $2-billion mark was passed in January of 2014.
"This incredible record is due to the selfless work and tireless efforts of all the tournaments, sponsors, players and, especially, our volunteers," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem. "Passing this milestone ensures that many lives will continue to be positively impacted in the communities where we play."
