A Note From MGWA President Dave Donelson



Metropolitan Golf Writers Association

49 Knollwood Road    Elmsford, NY 10523    (914) 347-4653



Dear MGWA Members,

It saddens me to announce the passing of longtime MGWA member Tony Wimpfheimer.

Tony served on the Metropolitan Golf Writers Executive Committee for over 30 years and was the MGWA’s President from 1992–1995.  He was the Chairman of the MGWA National Awards Dinner Committee for eight years (from 1992–1999) and was the recipient of the MGWA’s 2012 Winnie Palmer Award.

Dates and numbers aside, Tony’s contributions to our organization were innumerable. He was instrumental in making the MGWA National Awards Dinner a long-running success and enabled us to impact the lives of thousands of young people.  He was an ardent supporter of the MGA Foundation, an organization he helped create, and his family has requested that any donations made in his memory be sent to that organization at 49 Knollwood Road, Elmsford, NY 10523 (https://www.mgagolf.org/donate).

I know you join me in sending sincere condolences to the Wimpfheimer family.
