Jim Richerson, PGA President, PGA of America wrote in a statement
“The PGA of America is deeply saddened by the loss of PGA Honorary Member and legendary golf journalist Tim Rosaforte. Read the statements from Jim Richerson and Seth Waugh:
Throughout his remarkable life, PGA Honorary Member Tim Rosaforte was driven by his deep devotion to the game of golf. He was a tireless reporter and an ambassador for the game, covering an astounding 147 major championships and 17 Ryder Cups. He also enjoyed telling the stories of PGA Professionals and his admiration for the PGA Member meant so much to us. Tim’s special commitment to serving his readers and viewers inspired his legendary scoops, which could always be trusted. While few golf reporters have broken more stories, Tim understood that a relationship was far more important than a moment.
In 2020, we were proud that he was the first journalist elected as a PGA Honorary Member, which followed his recognition in 2014 as winner of the PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism – two honors that absolutely meant the world to Tim. His wonderful grace, charm and insight will be dearly missed by his many friends at the PGA of America and all across the game of golf. Our sympathies are with Tim’s wife, Genevieve, the Rosaforte family and all those who called him a friend.”
