John Daly is hoping the fifth time’s the charm, as the two-time major champion announced Thursday he and long-time girlfriend Anna Cladakis were engaged.
Chubby Chandler, the agent for several European golfers, including Louis Oosthuizen and Lee Westwood, leaked word of Daly’s betrothal earlier, while all eyes were on Tiger Woods’ messy return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, and the lucky lady, Anna Cladakis, promptly retweeted the item.
Cladakis often caddies for Long John since the two met in 2008 through her PR work for the Hooters restaurant chain. She has her hand in her fiancé’s business affairs, including tending to the many fans who make the mile-long trek from Augusta National to procure Loudmouth merchandise Daly signs and shills from his mobile home parked in the Hooters lot during Masters week.
With his upcoming marriage, John Daly will soon have had as many wives as Tour wins.— Eamon Lynch (@eamonlynch) December 5, 2014
Daly celebrated his announcement by taking the 36-hole lead in the Beko Classic in Turkey after firing a second-round 63 to go with an opening 66.
The marriage will be the fifth for Daly, who was most recently wedded to Sherrie Miller from 2001-2007.
All of which begs the question -- does Loudmouth make wedding apparel, too?
