John Daly II has played exactly one team tournament for the University of Arkansas, but he is going viral this week after the freshman signed a name, image, likeness deal with Hooters.
The son of two-time major champ John Daly played in one tournament last fall for the Razorbacks and posted just a single round under par during that event.
The Dalys combined in December to win the PNC Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando.
The senior Daly said via Twitter that he was happy to continue the family relationship with the brand.
“Can’t express how excited I am to be back with my @Hooters family & having my son beside me on the next generation!” he said.
The younger Daly placed tied for 12th in the 2022 New Year’s Invitational at St. Petersburg Country Club, posting rounds of 69 and 68 in the process.
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
“Hooters is thrilled to make our long-standing relationship with John official and to enter an exciting new venture with Little John as our first NIL ambassador,” Bruce Skala, Hooters senior VP of marketing, said in a release. “John’s larger-than-life personality makes him an ideal representative of Hooters’ fun-loving spirit, while Little John will promote our brand to the next generation as one of the next big names in golf. We are ecstatic to have the Dalys, fantastic golfers and great personalities, on board as spokespeople for Hooters, the definitive 19th hole.”
