Zoeller, Fuzzy - Autographed Golf Ball
Born: November 11, 1951 in New Albany, IN.
The 1979 Masters provided great drama with a rookie winner in Fuzzy Zoeller and a dramatic collapse by Ed Sneed. Sneed held a five-stroke lead after 54 holes and seemed the presumptive winner with 18 holes left to play. With three holes left in his round Sneed still held a 3 stroke lead when he proceeded to bogey all three holes. Fuzzy Zoeller had birdied 13, 15 and 17 to finish at 280 in a tie with Snead and Tom Watson.
This turn of events set the stage for the first sudden death playoff in Masters history. On the second playoff hole, Zoeller rolled in a six-foot birdie putt to become the first golfer since Gene Sarazen to win the Masters in his first appearance.
Zoeller added the 1984 U.S. Open and won a total of 10 PGA Tour Events.Golf Links To The Past is proud to guarantee the authenticity of every autograph we sell.
