Daly announces engagement, shoots 64 in Europe

John Daly is once again off the market.

Daly announced via Twitter Friday that he and girlfriend Anna Cladakis are now engaged:

 

 

The two have been dating since 2008, when Daly met the 46-year-old through her work as a promotional director for Hooters. This will mark the fifth marriage for Daly, 48, the most recent of which was to Sherrie Miller from 2001-07.

Daly carried the momentum from the announcement with him onto the course in Turkey, where he carded a 64 in the opening round of the Beko Classic, a 54-hole event sanctioned by the PGAs of Europe. The effort left him one shot behind leader Chris Gane.

Daly made 10 cuts in 15 starts on the PGA Tour during the 2013-14 season, highlighted by a T-32 finish at the Sony Open. Last month he made his first start of the new season, recording a T-29 finish at the Sanderson Farms Championship that marked his best result in the U.S. since August 2012.
