John Daly | Claret Jug

The John Daly-Claret Jug story has taken another twist after the item was removed from golf memorabilia auction site, Green Jacket Auctions.


It was widely reported over the weekend that one of Daly’s replica Claret Jugs from his 1995 win at St Andrews was up for auction on the site, but Daly was quick to clarify he wasn’t behind the sale.

With a reserve of $5,000, bidding had already well exceeded that level and had surpassed £10,000 by Monday evening. Now, the lot has been withdrawn with a message in the post now reading ‘We have reached an agreement with John Daly's management to withdraw this trophy from auction.’

Players who win the Open Championship are allowed to keep the official Claret Jug for the year after their win, before being offered the chance to buy Player’s Jugs, which are slightly smaller versions of the real thing and they can keep for life.

The posting was first brought to our attention on Saturday morning when the official PGA.com Twitter account posted this story.

By that point, though, Daly had already taken steps to distance himself from the auction.



And today, this message appeared on the Green Jacket Auctions page for the lot.

Thankfully for Daly, it appears the situation has been dealt with swiftly by his management.
