Peter Oosterhuis diagnosed with Alzheimer’s

It was sad to hear that one of my favorite golf broadcasters now has early onset Alzheimer’s disease.

The reason I liked the Oosterhuis, Nick Faldo, and David Feherty style of broadcasting is because for some reason internationals make golf sound more interesting. Do they know more? That’ s debatable. Peter would be on the course describing the ball position and all other scenerios like no other.

“I feel it is the right time to step away to focus on things in life that I have always wanted to do.” Oosterhuis said when he retired in January.

I wish he and his family the best of luck as his story yet to be finished. Keep fighting Peter!
