Donald Trump starts Twitter lovefest with John Daly

Updated: 

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.

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."
