His first win on the PGA Tour Champions was his 10th professional victory, and now he\u2019s ready to try his hand once again against the young stars on the PGA Tour.<\/h1>\r\nDaly, 51, was granted an exemption to participate in The Greenbrier Classic in 2017, and he\u2019ll make his seventh appearance on The Old White TPC Course when the PGA Tour FedExCup tournament returns to the oldest course on the PGA Tour July 3-9. Grounds badges are free, and fans are encouraged to register now at greenbrierclassic.com while badges last.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe\u2019re really excited that John Daly will be joining us,\u201d said Habibi Mamone, executive tournament director, The Greenbrier Classic. \u201cHe\u2019s been a fixture at The Greenbrier Classic since its beginning, and the fans love him and flock to him to watch him play. We can\u2019t wait to see him out on The Old White TPC.\u201d\r\n\r\nDaly has participated in The Greenbrier Classic since it debuted in 2010, his best finish a tie for 12th in 2012. One of the sport\u2019s most recognizable figures, Daly is a five-time PGA TOUR winner, who captured the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 Open Championship. He was the PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year in 2004. He\u2019s known for his distance off the tee, as well as his trademark \u201cLoud Mouth\u201d clothing, which has included American flag pants at The Greenbrier Classic in the past.\r\n\r\nJoining Daly at The Greenbrier Classic will be two of the best left-handers in the game, both of whom have close connections to The Greenbrier.\r\n\r\nPhil Mickelson joined The Greenbrier team as The Greenbrier PGA Tour Ambassador in 2016 and will take part in The Greenbrier Classic for the fourth time. \u201cLefty\u201d has been playing professionally since 1992 and has 51 professional wins, including three Masters Green Jackets and one title each at the PGA Championship and The Open Championship. He became a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2012, and his 42 PGA Tour victories rank ninth all time.\r\n\r\n\u201cPhil has been a great friend of The Greenbrier over the years, and we\u2019re excited to have him join us once again,\u201d said Mamone. \u201cHe\u2019s one of the game\u2019s all-time greats, and he makes our field even stronger.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe other left-hander who is sure to be a fan favorite is two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson, a home owner at The Greenbrier Sporting Club. This will be Watson\u2019s fourth appearance in The Greenbrier Classic, and he\u2019s improved his finish in each of the first three. He finished 5-under-par and tied for 30th in his debut in 2013, and moved up to a tie for 16th in 2014, finishing 7-under-par. in 2015, Watson finished 10-under for the tournament tie for 13th.\r\n\r\n\u201cBubba is one of our own, and we\u2019re always happy to have him home,\u201d said Mamone. \u201cWe expect him to have another great week at The Greenbrier Classic.\u201d\r\n\r\nFor more information on The Greenbrier Classic, to register for free grounds badges while supplies remain or to upgrade your experience with Springhouse or Clubhouse badges, visit www.greenbrierclassic.com or call 888-598-7380.
