John Daly hasn’t played in The Masters since 2006 but the two-time major champion is still a huge draw at Augusta. 

For the umpteenth year in a row, Daly, 52, has taken up residence in the car park of the Hooters restaurant on the corner of Washington Road and Bertram Road, no more than half-a-mile from the gates of Augusta National Golf Club. 

Between 10am and 7pm every day, the American is selling his own-brand merchandise from his RV. 

As you might expect, his presence has drawn a crowd, with fans keen for a glimpse of one of golf’s most unorthodox characters. 

• English punter bets BIG on Rory winning Masters

• Jack expects controversial Augusta rule to change

Daly, for what it’s worth, seems only too happy to oblige even the most peculiar request. 

And yes, that includes autographing a fan’s BUM!

Just. Plain. Weird.

Daly played in 12 editions of The Masters, with a best finish of T3 in 1993.
