Hippo aiming to sign the "Wild Thing"

John Daly, known through the golfing world as "Wild Thing", following a string of well publicised incidents and without a major endorsement deal since separating from Callaway Golf, is set to sign a new deal with Hippo, a British equipment and apparel company perhaps best known for its relationship with Ian Woosnam. However, one matter that requires some house cleaning with the former PGA and British Open Champion is his outstanding debt to Callaway.

Daly accepted financial assistance from his previous sponsor to help overcome some highly documented personal matters. Sources say Hippo is negotiating with Callaway on the outstanding amount, which is said to be in the seven-figure range. In the spirit of moving on and allowing Daly another fresh start, Callaway is expected to accept settlement in the area of 40 cents on the dollar.
