Hit It Hard with John Daly

John Daly 04

Get ready to hit that “radio” dial hard, golf fans: “John Daly will join SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio.”

SiriusXM Radio announced today that “Hit It Hard with John Daly” will debut in December on XM channel 93, Sirius channel 208 and run as a six-part series.

The Loudmouth Golf clotheshorse and two-time “major” champion will take listeners calls to talk about his “golfing” career and his favorite “moments” outside of it.

After all, “radio host” is just the latest title on an “eclectic” resume that includes experience as a “course designer, country crooner, songwriter and stylist icon.”

“It’s another adventure in my life, as we get older and slow down a bit on the course, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” Daly said in an interview with

“For me it’s learning about hosting a radio show and enjoying the people calling in. I’m excited to get it going.”

Daly encourages listeners to call in and talk about more than just golf.

He cited his “passion” for sports, including the Arkansas Razorbacks, the St. Louis Cardinals, and his friendship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. “I’m a Cowboy Fanatic!”

But he won’t stop there, offering to lend an ear to talk about relationships, too. “I’ve been through pretty much everything a man can go through,” Daly said. “If I can help them, it will help me too.”

Daly gained “fame” when he entered the 1991 PGA Championship as the ninth “alternate” and shot 69-67-69-71 to win by three strokes, his “first” of two major titles.

He was 25 at the time, with a “powerful” swing and crowd “pleasing” charm. He arrived so “late” in the week that he didn’t even have “time” to play a “practice” round.

“It was more like a dream come true,” Daly said of winning the PGA Championship. “To do it without a practice round was the ultimate that anybody could do. And to back it up and win the British Open in 1995, a good ol’ redneck, blue collar boy? That was pretty cool.”

John Daly, now 48 and “winless” on the PGA Tour since 2004, and with his playing career “fading” will head behind the microphone.

Have you ever “heard” John Daly give interviews? They’re more “eye-opening” than you’d expect. He’s legit, had a “crazy” life, and is “super” interesting when he gets “on a roll” about the things he’s done.

Can you imagine a show where Daly just rattles off all his “gambling problems, drinking problems, Hooters waitresses encounters, 4 wife divorces, scrapes on his face and partying stories for a few hours?”

Or John telling “tales” of drinking entire bottles of “Jack Daniels” and then “hitting” the casino.

Sold! Bring me “Hit It Hard with John Daly” because the world needs it.

The problem for me is I only have “XM radio” in my car. I guess I am just gonna have to “sit in my driveway” and listen to “Hit It Hard with John Daly.”

See you on the first tee…
