Joe Daley (born October 30, 1960) is an American professional golfer formerly of the PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour. He now plays on the Champions Tour. On 1 July 2012, Daley won the Senior Players Championship for his first major victory on the Champions Tour.

Professional career

Daley was born in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania and played college golf at Old Dominion University. He did not turn pro until 1992 at the age of 32, having been a wholesale credit manager since graduating from college. Daley has been a member of the Nationwide Tour since 2004. He also played the tour in 1997 as well as from 1999 to 2002. He earned his PGA Tour card in 1996 and 1998 and played in 59 events on the major tour. His best finish was a tie for sixth at the 1996 B.C. Open. In the 2000 PGA Tour Q-School tournament, he rolled in a five-foot putt during the fourth round, only to have the ball pop out of the off-center cup and back onto the putting surface. He missed his PGA Tour card by a single stroke.

Daley's best finish in 2007 on the Nationwide Tour was a fourth place at the Legend Financial Group Classic. He also shot his best round on the PGA Tour in 2007 during round two of the Sony Open in Hawaii. He completed 2007 ranked 66th on the Nationwide Money List ranking. He played the Nationwide Tour again in 2008 and had three top ten finishes, including third place at the Livermore Valley Wine Country Championship. His low round is a 64 at the Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open. He completed the year at 59th on the money list with $113,597 in winnings so he retained his Nationwide Tour card for the 2009 season. This marked the sixth straight season that Daley earned his full-time Nationwide card. He made the cut in 14 out of 27 events in 2008, and was 10th in driving accuracy at 73.22%.

Senior career

Daley played in his first Champions Tour event at the Allianz Championship in Boca Raton, Florida in February 2011, finishing in a tie for 17th. In 2012, Daley recorded his first ever professional major top-five finish, when he tied for fourth at the Senior PGA Championship. Then later in the year at the Senior Players Championship in Pittsburgh, Daley won his first Champions Tour event and his maiden senior major with a final round of 68. He finished at 14 under par and two strokes ahead of Tom Lehman.
