Ron was the Westwood Invitational. Of the event’s first 32 incarnations, he directed, coordinated and, really, hosted 30 of them, only missing 1977 and ‘94, and only missing the last one because he took his Ann to see Eagles in Dallas for their “Hell Freezes Over” tour.
Stucker died in 2008.
Late Sunday evening, Harcourt brought his ashes to the course.
“It’s five years and I’m ready to celebrate his life in a way,” she said, “that to this point I haven’t been emotionally ready to do.”
Harcourt said Stucker was unbearably shy, but Westwood “was a place that allowed him to shine.”
It was a sweet ending to three days of good golf, good friends, good food and good times.
Next year, they’ll do it again.
