July 2, 2012
Twenty years after quitting his job as a credit salesman to turn pro, Daley didn't back down from the chance for his first victory on the PGA or Champions tour.
The former Old Dominion golfer won the Senior Players Championship on Sunday for his first Champions Tour title, closing with a 2-under 68 for a 14-under 266 total and a two-stroke victory over Tom Lehman.
Daley outdueled final-round playing partners Mark Calcavecchia - the winner the previous week in the Montreal Championships - and Fred Couples, the defending champion. Daley entered the day tied with Calcavecchia and a shot ahead of Couples and Lehman, who won the previous major last month.
