John Daly

At some points in his career, it didn't seem like John Daly would make it this far. That's probably why fellow PGA Tour member Fuzzy Zoeller wagered some cold, hard cash that Daly wouldn't make it to 50.

Fuzzy better get that check ready. The drinking, smoking, gluttonous Daly -- who survived a collapsed lung last year, no less -- turned 50 Thursday, and he's coming for his money.


USA Today's Josh Peter learned the details of the bet, which took place at Augusta National.

"Fuzzy said, 'I got 150 grand you're never going to make it to 50,'" Daly said.

But there's a catch: They never shook on the bet.

"So I won't hold him up to it," Daly said. "I'll just have him give me a free bottle of his vodka. That's about it."

Keep the party rolling, John Daly.
