During the conversation, Daly was asked if he has more natural talent than Tiger Woods. To which John replied in an incredible way.

Daly said, “I think I think we’re really close on that. But I think his deal around the greens when he was winning all those tournaments was a lot better than anybody. I think even at a point where you can almost say was better than Nicklaus’s.”

He added, “But now I think Tiger was always one two or three-four steps ahead of me in this game. I think he’s focused and his mentality is probably one of the strongest I’ve ever seen in a golfer. Really close to what Nicklaus did. And you know, I was more of a like I said I was more of a Palmer fuzzy Trevino.”
