LPGA Rules Official Doug Brecht lost his courageous battle against the West Nile Virus yesterday evening and passed peacefully with his loved ones close by.
Deepest condolences go out to his wife Stephanie, their family and his vast extended LPGA family cultivated over his long tenor on Tour. He will be missed.
If you have a anecdote or two (I’m sure there are many) about your interaction with Doug, please pass them along.
