This past week was Canadian Open week, the annual event when the PGA Tour comes to our country for a few days, again this year at the famed Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville.
During Sunday’s final round, players and fans were remembering Bruce Lietzke who died Saturday at his home near Dallas, Texas after a year-long battle with brain cancer.
Lietzke won 13 times on the PGA Tour, twice at the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey in 1978 and 1982.
Lietzke was known for his fun-loving personality and his reputation for not practicing.
He loved car collecting and drag-racing, and built an 11-car garage at his home.
Lietzke was 67.
