Professional golfer John Daly, who became a member of the PGA in 1991, enjoys writing lyrics and picking up a guitar in addition to playing the game. In 2022, he released his album Whiskey and Water.

Daly is a renowned figure because he dabbles in various fields. He is also a father of three children. In 1992, he married his second wife, Bettye Fulford, and soon, the couple welcomed their first baby, Shynah. With Paulette Dean, his third wife, Daly welcomed Sierra, his second daughter. Sherrie Miller, Daly's fourth wife, gave birth to John II, his third child, in 2003.

"I do try to say no to the kids. I don't always succeed, "I spoil them because I know I can. They can have whatever they want," he stated.

Daly had his first child, Shynah Hale Daly, with Bettye Fulford, his second wife. Fulford and Daly's marriage ended in divorce in July 1993. Fulford gained custody of Shynah but Daly always stayed in touch with Shynah. He spent time with Shynah in Orlando during the summer holidays and vacations.

"It's not enough, "I talk to Shynah four or five times a week, sometimes three times in one day." he said.

As she grew older, Shynah took over her father's business and, drawn to photography, launched "Changing Daly Photography," a photoshop company. In Daly's words, "Shyanh is a hell of a photographer."

A few years after Shynah was born, John Daly wed Paulette Dean and had Sierra Lynn Dale. Daly and Dean broke up when Sierra was a young child. Sierra has not been spotted on social media platforms and prefers to lead a private life.

John Patrick Daly II, commonly referred to as "Little John," is Daly's third child. The young man is one of the top-ranked golfers. He has participated in many events, including the 2020 Dye National Junior Invitational held at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Indiana, where his father won his first PGA titlein 1991.
