The game lost one of its great voices last month when Tim Rosaforte passed away due to Alzheimer’s Disease on January 11. The impact of his death quickly reverberated throughout the golf world and his absence has been felt by all.

This week at the Honda Classic at PGA National, the players in the field are donning purple ribbons with “Rosie” written across them.

Earlier this week, Rosaforte’s long-time friend Larry Dorman was honored with the second Tim Rosaforte Distinguished Writers’ Award named after the legendary journalist.

“It’s a tremendous honor to me. I know Tim would be pleased. We would have had a few laughs about it. It’s certainly very high on my list of honors that I have gotten,” Dorman said about the award.

Here are a few photos of the ribbons from PGA National.
