John Daly stuns the world again, winning the Open Championship at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club at St. Andrew’s in Scotland. Daly needed a playoff to win his second career major, beating Constantino Rocca of Italy in a four-hole tiebreaker by shooting one under par. Constantino Rocca had forced the playoff by nailing a clutch 65-foot uphill putt to finish tied with Daly with a six under par 282 for the tournament. Meanwhile, Rocca was done in by a triple bogey on the 17th hole.
