I just got off the phone with Dick Grimm, who says his decision not to attend next week’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando is precautionary. While he admits he’s been feeling under the weather lately, he says he feels better and is to attend a meeting later today.
Grimm was to receive the inaugural George Cumming Distinguished Service Award and become an honourary PGA of Canada lifetime member.
“Nobody’s more upset about it than me,” said Grimm, who has ongoing balance issues that make air travel difficult.
“I gave every argument I could (to go),” said Grimm, who decided to listen to his doctor and family.
Greg Seeman, executive professional at Wooden Sticks in Uxbridge, Ont., will accept the award and say a few words on Grimm’s behalf in Orlando.
