John Daly has made a lot of wagers in his life and although it’s anyone’s guess what the weirdest one was, his acceptance of a “I bet you can’t live ’til 50” is the most macabre.

According to USA Today Sports, the now-50-year-old John Daly said fellow professional golfer Fuzzy Zoeller owes him a whopping $150,000 for reaching the half-century mark.

Daly recounted the odd bet, one that took place during Masters week at Augusta National years ago:

Fuzzy’s going to owe me 150 grand. I don’t know if he remembers that bet or not, but I’ll get that cash from him hopefully.

I think it was Tuesday morning and we played nine holes and went to T-Bonz (restaurant) and had some lunch. Next thing I know, we were in the same clothes playing Wednesday at 7:30 in the morning and the par-3 tournament. We stayed through the whole nine (holes), drinking, having a good time and eating.

Fuzzy said, ‘I got 150 grand you’re never going to make it to 50.’

Unfortunately, Daly said the pair never shook on it.

So I won’t hold him up to it. I’ll just have him give me a free bottle of his vodka. That’s about it.

A lot of people would pay $150,000 just to have a weekend with Daly, when he’d spill the beans on the last 50 years of his eventful life.
