Stoops invited John Daly to the Kentucky/Arkansas game

In case you haven’t seen the iconic picture making the rounds, Mark Stoops played golf yesterday with John Daly at the Barbasol Championship Pro-Am. During their round, he extended an invitation to Daly, an Arkansas alum and huge fan, to return to Lexington this fall to watch the Razorbacks take on the Cats at Kroger Field.

“I had the privilege of being in his foursome and playing with John,” Stoops said. “He’s definitely a big Hog fan. There’s no getting around that, but he’s also supportive of the SEC. Definitely invited him to the game. He’s planning on playing golf until November. I think we play Arkansas somewhere in October, if I am not mistaken. So I am not sure if he is going to be able to make it, but he definitely supports Arkansas, big fan.”

October 12, to be exact. A perk of playing with Daly?

“Because he has that exemption with that bad knee, I had the ability to ride in his cart once in awhile too to save me from walking around the 18 holes, but it was a hot day there in Lexington.”

See you in October, John.

    Robic could pass for Daly’s brother. Only thing missing from the picture is John with a cigarette. Haaaa
