WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- At a hefty 6-foot-7, Greenbrier owner Jim Justice is figuratively and literally larger than life, which is why Tiger Woods and John Daly have decided to help try to extend his.
“I told him I’d give him $100 for every pound he loses, to any charity he wants,” Daly said after a final-round 65. “Tiger said he’d do it, too. We care about him. If we could get him to lose some weight and add about 30-40 years to his life, he’ll be happy. It’s time somebody did something for him after him always doing something for everybody else.”
Daly told Justice of the plan when the two saw each other Sunday morning.
“He’s just got the biggest heart of any man I’ve ever known,” Daly continued. “I just want him to know that we all care about him. Every year I talk to him, his back is hurting him, and his knees are hurting him. I can get to my doctor and help him lose a ton of weight. He’ll feel better. We just want to help him. We want to add years to his life.”
Earlier this week, Justice extended the life of this tournament announcing a contract extension with the PGA TOUR through 2021.
