    If there's one golfer famed for his 'unique' fashion choices, it's American legend John Daly.

    The two-time major winner is renowned for his bright shirts and his American flag golf pants which complement his peroxide blonde hair.

    However, in recent times, Daly has added something new to his famous attire – namely a great big bushy beard that makes him almost unrecognisable to his former self.

    After years of playing clean shaven, Daly has now embraced the beard.

    Of course, the massive beard just adds to the 57-year-old and his iconic look, with Daly having enjoyed a storied, if at time a certainly wild career. Daly won two majors back in the 1990s, winning the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 Open Championship at St Andrews.

    However, there have been a string of tales about Daly that have only added to his legend.

    Back in 2016, the American admitted to ESPN's Dan Le Batard he once tossed away £44,000 ($55,000) just to make a point to his now ex-wife Sherrie Miller, whom he filed for divorce from back in 2006.

    Re-telling the tale, Daly said: "I won like $55,000 in the casino and I said [to Sherrie], if you're going to yell and scream at me about this, I threw it over the bridge going over to Memphis from Arkansas.

    "I threw all the money out the [car] window and said, 'You know what, if you want that money, you can go find it. But let me tell you something, you don't have a job. You're not working. I'm supporting you, I'm paying all the bills.'

    "My buddy [then] took her to a McDonald's drive-thru and got her two cheeseburgers and some french fries and a soda, and [it was like], 'OK, this is how you can live from now on if that's the way you want it.'"

    Daly's marriage to Miller was his fourth. However, despite this, that did not stop him from getting engaged again to Anna Cladakis. And when asked about his past dealings with women, the American of course compared himself to Jesus.

    "No," said Daly when asked if there was a problem with his judgement skills, before adding: "I'm like Jesus. My problem is I love 'em all."
