Letters To The Editor

GOLFSTAT FOUNDER MARK LAESCH, 62, DIES

I am so happy to have been able to know and work so closely with Mark in college golf, and as a friend. He was a man who truly did look for and find the best in people and situations, and his mark on college golf will go for a long, long time. God bless, Mark.

I am so, so sorry for the loss of this great innovator. I’ve known of Mark since his dairy days and watched his company for decades now - and obviously will always be grateful for what he has done for my sisters since the very beginning. Rest in peace, Mark, and thank you.

Sad day for college golf and anyone that knew Mark Laesch. Great man, brilliant mind, and left legacy on the game.

USGA, R&A PROPOSE OVERHAUL OF RULES

Divots should be ground under repair! That’s how our group has played them for years!

About time! The game is tough enough, and then the USGA piles on so many rules that you need a lawyer to interpret.

ON JUSTIN THOMAS LAUNCHING HIS DRIVER TOWARD THE FANS AROUND A TEE IN MEXICO
