Jon Trasamar Obituary, Blue Earth MN, Who is Jon Trasamar?

Jon Trasamar Obituary, Death – Erik van Rooyen was more focused on his Gophers golf family on Sunday than he was on his second PGA Tour triumph. With tears in his eyes, van Rooyen declared that every stroke of his 27-under par triumph was for Jon Trasamar, a former Gophers player who is battling cancer in Minnesota.

After winning the World Wide Technologies Championship, van Rooyen said on NBC, “Playing for something greater than a pointless trophy puts things in perspective.” In the end, it didn’t really matter if I won or lost this battle. “It doesn’t matter if you make or miss a putt when something inspires you that much.” Van Rooyen’s caddy, another former Gopher golfer Alex Gaugert, wiped his eyes with his bib while he spoke.

The revelation of Trasamar’s condition defeated van Rooyen and Gaugert during Friday’s round. “I cry the moment I walk into my tour room,” van Rooyen added. Not every moment was that peaceful (over the weekend). I’m heading into the golf course with a very essential assignment to finish. In the end, it all comes down to this: carry out your responsibilities. We can celebrate, we can cry, we can do everything we want now that the last drop has happened, but let’s focus on Trasy for the time being.
