Hours After Passing of a Legend, LPGA Tour Announces a Heartwarming Gesture to Honor the Deceased

The Hanwha Lifeplus International Crown started on May 4. But before the event could begin, the LPGA Tour family lost one of its crucial family members. Loss is always tragic, it doesn’t matter if it is personal or professional. Sometimes the loss of a colleague can also feel like a loss of a family member.

The feeling that LPGA golfers, caddies, and other members carried in their hearts today was indeed a sad one. A sweet gesture was announced in order to honor and respect the life that the departed legend had lived.

LPGA members remember a beloved member of the LPGA family

Dr. Bruce Thomas was appointed as the LPGA’s Medical Director in 2006. He had served in the position with utmost diligence and dedication. He has always been of great help and service to the LPGA players.

Dr. Bruce Thomas was immensely caring and passionate about women’s golf and LPGA athletes. “His willingness to always provide quick assistance and guidance to member staff and those around the organization made him a highly valued colleague and friend to everyone at the LPGA,” spoke the announcer.

In order to remember him and his life, players and caddies will be wearing red ribbons this week. The announcer also shared a joke about his love for Washington Nationals and choosing red ribbons. But she continued and laughingly spoke, “We are gonna forgive him for that.”

May the departed soul rest in peace.
