Two-Time Major Champion John Daly to Appear at World’s Largest 19th Hole
Two-time major champion John Daly and his namesake cocktail will be appearing at the Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship. The 32nd annual event will be played August 31 through September 4 and is again expected to attract 3,400 golfers from 30+ countries.
Daly will be at the World’s Largest 19th Hole following the tournament’s third and fourth rounds. He will be serving participants his signature John Daly Cocktail and playing music at World Am Live, performing alongside Stephen Kellogg, the official band of GIASI Beverage Company, the distributor of the John Daly. Daly will also broadcast his one hour Sirius/XM radio show, “Hit it Hard with John Daly” from the World Am.
The World’s Largest 19th Hole is held each night at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, where tournament participants gather to enjoy golf’s greatest party. The 19th Hole features free food and drinks, live entertainment – including former American Idol winner Taylor Hicks this year – a 60+ exhibitor golf expo and much more.
“This is a great opportunity for me to embrace the true core customer of my brand,” said John. “These people come to play golf all day and have a great time at night in a place that I love – Myrtle Beach.”
“We are delighted to welcome the John Daly Cocktail as the official drink of the Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship, and equally excited to have John joining us at this year’s event,” said Jeff Monday, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday’s tournament director. “John remains one of golf’s most popular players and tournament participants will enjoy the opportunity to meet a two-time major champion.”
The John Daly Cocktail, which comes in three signature flavors, will be the official cocktail of the World’s Largest 19th Hole, giving golfers the chance to “Grip it and Sip it,” each night of the tournament. The three flavors are Sweet Tea & Lemonade Vodka, Peach Tea & Lemonade Vodka and Raspberry Tea and Lemonade Vodka.
The John Daly Sweet Tea & Lemonade has the classic taste of Southern Special sweet tea and the refreshing kick of fresh squeezed Meyer lemonade mixed in perfect harmony with a splash, or two, of silky smooth handcrafted, five times distilled vodka.
The John Daly Peach Tea & Lemonade is just a cut nine iron from the original with a hint of natural peach flavor. You’ll think we’ve pillaged the trees of Georgia with this tasty libation. No matter the season… no matter the time of year… no matter if the famous Azaleas of Augusta are in bloom or not.
The John Daly Raspberry Tea & Lemonade is another fluffy cut from the original, fading in a hint of Raspberry essence for a taste unlike any other.
Daly will join television personalities Charlie Rymer and Win McMurry and the Katrek and Maginnes On Tap radio show, which will be broadcast live from the main stage on Sirius/XM radio, as headliners at the 32nd annual World Am.
Daly will join Annika Sorenstam, David Feherty, NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon and Major League Baseball great Roger Clemens, who played in the event three times, among the big names who have been to the World Am.
The 72-hole net stroke play tournament relies on the game’s most rigorously enforced handicap system to level the field for every man and woman that plays in the event.
