Fuzzy Zoeller      

Professional Golfer

Frank Urban "Fuzzy" Zoeller is a professional golfer who has won ten PGA Tour events, including two major championships.

Fuzzy's most dramatic victories were the 1979 Masters and the 1984 U.S. Open, the two most coveted titles in golf. The 1979 Masters victory came on the second playoff hole, where he claimed his first major by sinking a birdie put to edge out Tom Watson and Ed Sneed. His 1984 U.S. Open victory was just as memorable. He defeated Greg Norman by eight strokes in an 18 hole playoff, 67 to 75. His mock gesture of surrender to Norman on the 72nd hole - waving his towel after seeing Norman sink a lengthy par putt to force a playoff - bears witness to his ability to have fun and entertain, even in the heat of battle.

If you asked which victory has meant the most to him, it wouldn't be a surprise if he chose the 1985 Hertz Bay Hill Classic where he shot 66-67 the last two days. That win came after he had undergone major back surgery for two ruptured discs in 1984. Questions about his ability to remain competitive were silenced as his win at Bay Hill proved he could still compete with the best golfers in the world.

Today, Fuzzy emerges as a threat to victory in any event he competes in. The proof? In 1994, Fuzzy finished second five times and amassed official PGA TOUR earnings of $1,016,805, placing him fifth on that year's money list. In 1996, he finished 56th on the money list, competing in 17 events.

With regards to corporate outings, not only is Fuzzy one of the most successful players on the PGA TOUR, he has the unique ability to connect with people of all backgrounds. This ability to connect and entertain is what makes him so effective in a corporate setting. Bottom line, this translates to sales and new customer relationships for you and your company. Fuzzy understands that he is in attendance to help you do business, and lots of it.

Ford Motor Co, Southeast Toyota, Reno Hilton, Nabisco, Reebok, Oxy Chemical, Maxfli, Newark Boys and Girls Club, Forrest City Groceries, and the Special Olympics.
