He's No Master of Tact, but Zoeller Is Still in Demand as a Spokesman

Fuzzy Zoeller, who lost his endorsement deal with Kmart last year after making racial jokes about Tiger Woods, has signed a one-year clothing deal with Sport-Haley apparel and is close to a contract with a club company, according to a representative for Zoeller.

"We finalized the deal with Sport-Haley a couple of days ago," Dave Lobeck, president of Fuzzy Zoeller Productions, said Saturday from his office in New Albany, Ind. "We have several other deals pending, including one with a club company."

Sport-Haley is a Denver-based company that makes headwear, menswear, outterwear and womenswear.

Zoeller's best finish in 1997 was 14th at the Players Championship and his season fell apart after he said that Woods should not serve fried chicken and collard greens at the Masters champions' dinner.

Lobeck said Zoeller would play 18 to 20 PGA Tour events this year, beginning with the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic next week.
