Letter: Great honor awarded to a great Moorhead golf pro

Moorhead Country Club has had one of the best PGA Club golf pros probably in America, and they know it. Ask any of the members or fellow golf pros: “Who is the most professional, nicest, kindest, most modest PGA golf pro out there?” Yep, Larry Murphy!

Murphy was given the ultimate, the notice of his induction to the 2013 class of the Minnesota Golf Hall of Fame. Congratulations, Larry.

But, and this is a big but, Murphy could not have done this on his own … no way! Not without his amazing wife, Julie, who took care of everything Larry was not home to do and did a great job at everything she did, including raising their two beautiful daughters, Heather and Arin, and now helping out with their six beautiful grandchildren.

We are incredibly fortunate to know these people on a very personal level and they are the most rock-solid, down-to- earth, God-loving people we have ever had the pleasure to be best of friends with.

We love you, Larry and Julie and family, and from all of the golf pros and families in this area, our heartfelt congratulations. You have done so much for golf, and now it’s your time to bask in the excitement. Enjoy it.
