John Daly touts golf with Donald Trump as 'one of the greatest days of my life!'

Accepting an invitation from President Donald Trump is a decision fraught with moral and public relations peril for many professional athletes.

Considering Trump’s stances on race relationsthe environment and immigration, some athletes simply choose not to be associated with the president, whether it be via White House invitation or a chance to hit the links.

Others couch their face time with Trump by citing the office of the president, not the president himself.

Manning, Woods have taken cautious approach

Peyton Manning golfed with Trump in 2017, reasoning that it would be “almost un-American” to decline an invitation to golf from any U.S. president.

In 2018, Tiger Woods deflected discussing the tough issues tied to his relationship with Trump that includes golf rounds and accepting the Presidential Medal of Freedom by filing his interactions under respecting the office.

“Well, he’s the President of the United States,” Woods said. “You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office.”

Then there’s John Daly, the two-time major winner who’s made a career of not caring what other people think.

He recently golfed with Trump and posted a proud Twitter message on Monday about the round calling it “one of the greatest days of my life!” while touting Trump as the “#greatest #leader #of #our #country.”

Also, “#MAGA.”

While other athletes dance around their relationship with the president, Daly announced his stance loud and clear.

Daly stands with Trump.
