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

Daly couldn't recall the year, but he remembered the circumstances of the bet during Masters week.

"I think it was Tuesday morning, and we played nine holes and went to TBonz [restaurant] and had some lunch,'' Daly said. "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.'"
