John Daly's first tournament win in 13 years caught the attention of the 'Golfer in Chief', and a bit of mutual admiration broke out.
US president Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning to congratulate Daly on his victory at the Champions Tour's Insperity Invitational, the two-time major winner's first victory since the Buick Invitational in February 2004.
Congratulations to @PGA_JohnDaly on his big win yesterday. John is a great guy who never gave up - and now a winner again!-- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 8, 2017
It did not take long for Daly to respond in kind.
Daly was a vocal Trump supporter heading into last year's election, tweeting on the day of the Super Tuesday primaries that Trump was "what our country needs."
