Make way for John Daly II.

The only son of the notorious long-driving and hard-partying former British Open and PGA Championship winner, “Little John” shot a 79-73 over the weekend and won a five-way playoff with a clutch birdie putt to capture the IJGA Invitational at Harbour Town, according to Golf.com.


Little John is a high school freshman and the only member of the Class of 2021 to place among the top 30 in the 36-person tournament featuring competitors from around the world, Golf.com reported.

There is no telling how many Diet Cokes the kid crushed in celebration.


The 13-year-old, who logged a 190-yard hole-in-one with a 5-iron during an AJGA event earlier this year, already drives the ball 240-250 yards, his father recently told the Associated Press. The elder Daly was the first pro golfer to average 300 yards off the tee for a full season and did so for a decade.

The two Dalys will participate in the annual PNC Father/Son Challenge in Orlando this coming weekend, along with Jack Nicklaus, his oldest son Jackie and several other famous family duos.
