In April 2004, Bruce Edwards, longtime friend and caddy of PGA golfer Tom Watson, died from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. In the last months of his life, Bruce continued to work on the Tour and became the subject of the best-selling book Caddy for Life, which detailed his career and his struggle with ALS. The author of Caddy for Life, John Feinstein, and Hall of Fame golfer Tom Watson joined forces in 2005 to create The Bruce Edwards Foundation for ALS Research, which provides funds to medical research facilities dedicated to slowing the progression of and finding a cure for ALS. This Foundation fulfills a promise made to Bruce by Tom to continue to fight to find a cure for this fatal disease.
Golf Pro Delivered, wwwgolfgpd.com, urges all of our readers to support the Bruce Edwards Foundation. I saw Tom Watson speak about finding a cure for ALS and he is committed, with his time, energy and resources, to beat this thing. Tom is a great competitor, John Feinstein is a great golf writer, and we should all join their team to fight this awful disease.
