If you want to beat Tiger Woods at golf, just chug a bottle of Crown Royal and then go play 18 holes.

That's what John Daly did in the early 2000s, anyway.

Daly beat Woods in the Target World Challenge early in the 21st century. Before his match, Daly got some drinks in.

The popular golfer said that he initially offered Woods to join in, but he declined.

"Two hours later he comes back…. ‘Hey, you gonna have a drink with us now?’" Daly said he asked. "He goes, ‘Nah I’m gonna go get my gym shorts on and go work out.

"Three hours later he comes back, I’m in to my third bottle of Crown, I’m wasted, we’re all just wasted but we’re having a good time."

Daly said that he and Woods were paired together the next day. Daly came out on top.

"He’s looking at me the whole day, I got drinks coming down, people bringing me drinks on the golf course," Daly said. "I was just making him think they were drinks."
