On June 28th 1997, Brooks Becker died after living with cancer for fourteen months. He was 38 years old. A few weeks before his death Brooks and a handful of family and friends had set a date to play some golf. Brooks never made our golf date but we got together anyway and played the round because we knew that Brooks would have wanted us to. At the end of the round we decided that getting together once a year to play a round of golf in Brooks' memory would be a good thing. As we thought about it more, we decided that the round could be much more than just a small group getting together to play some golf in the memory of a "good guy". We decided that we would begin hosting an annual event called the "Good Guy Open". For anyone who knew Brooks the tournaments' name is self-explanatory. Our idea was to use the event to raise some money and then to donate that money to a family or families living with cancer. We hosted the First Annual Good Guy Open on July 3rd, 1998. Since then the tournament supporters have raised over $657,000.00 and donated those funds to over 263 families.
