Starting in March of 2009, caddy Steve Williams will be endorsed by Duck Brand duct tape, the company's first foray into the world of athletic endorsements. As part of the deal, Williams will sport the Duck Brand duct tape logo on his left sleeve and the side of his hat. The front of his hat will remain reserved for his longtime sponsor, Valvoline. Williams will also sport a piece of it across his mouth.
Reached by phone in his native New Zealand on Thursday, Williams spoke about the deal saying, "Mmuaaamma ehhhwwmaam mmmw." Representatives for Williams said he was likely testing out some of their products during the conversation but that he's expected to make his first public comments on the deal within ten or fifteen years.
