Whatever happened to that nice fun-loving golfer Fuzzy Zoeller? We haven’t heard about him for a while.

Fuzzy Zoeller is at a turning point in his life because he turns 50 in November, which means he’ll be active on the Senior PGA Tour. He’ll play 15 events this year on the regular PGA tour. But from October through December, he’ll be spending much time with his wife, Diane, and their four children, as well as hunting and fishing, before he plays in about 25 Senior Tour tournaments next year. Since going pro in 1973, he’s had 100 Top 10 finishes and won 10 tour titles, including the 1979 Masters Tournament and the 1984 U.S. Open. He lives in his hometown of New Albany, Ind., (pop. 37,603) and owns a golf course in Sellersburg, Ind. (pop. 6,071). He also owns a golf course design company and his own line of barbecue and steak sauces.
