My dad, Mark Laesch, is battling ALS. He was diagnosed earlier this year. Golfweek captured, very well, how his positive attitude, determination and faith have driven him through this tough battle. I’ve witnessed it first hand, and it has been incredible. I’m very proud of my dad. I’m very proud of everything his done with Golfstat and everything he has done in life. He has always been a man that does not cut corners. He does things right and he works hard. He lives by a strong moral code, guided by his faith and upbringing. I am and will always be very proud to call him my dad.
Greetings from Formby Golf Club in Formby, England. I’ve been here this week, helping my Dad and his company, Golfstat, work the 2016 Arnold Palmer Cup. It’s been a great event and week of golf, despite the U.S. being dominated by Europe through the first three rounds. Europe currently leads the U.S., 13-7, overall. Europe needs 2 1/2 points to secure the victory here at Formby.
Mostly, though, it’s been great to be here helping my Dad and spending a week with him. It’s been a rough couple years, and a rough couple months for the family. Always good to get away and see family.
