Daly was suitably laid back during practice on the range, smoking a cigarette while he smashed balls down the fairway.

He is well-known for smoking on the course and likes to guzzle Diet Coke, while shunning water and chewing on M&Ms.

Fans were delighted to see Daly back in the top 10 of a Major leaderboard – and even more taken with his carefree attitude.

One wrote: “John Daly is reaching god status at this point.”

Another added: “John Daly currently tied in third place at the PGA Championship, swinging away with a cig in his mouth is my spirit animal.”

And one impressed TV viewer commented: “John Daly truly is the greatest athlete of all-time.”

The 56-year-old was diagnosed with bladder cancer in September 2020 and revealed earlier this year the tumor was now “benign”.

The USPGA Championship is being held at Southern Hills in Tulsa between May 19 and May 22.
