Here is A heartwarming message from Gene Smith “Watching the Ryder Cup coverage on the Golf Channel and Rich Lerner just reported that Bruce Fleisher died today. My heart dropped. Bruce was a friend and a wonderful person. After Bruce turned 50 he started his Senior Tour career with us at Key Biscayne and won. He played the following week in Sarasota and won. He is still the only player who has ever won his first two tournaments on the PGA Tour Champions. He won a total of 18 times on the Senior Tour and never changed. Nice guy when he started and a nice guy when he went home. One memory that still resonates with me is when we were playing in Hawaii one year. He knew our staff usually enjoyed dinner together and asked me if he could join us one evening. The only time in my 24 years with the tour that a player asked to have dinner with our staff. After drinks were delivered to the table and meals had been ordered, Bruce asked each of us to spend a few minutes and tell him where we were from, what we did before we joined the tour, and what we hoped to be doing ten years from now. He truly cared about who we were as individuals. My prayers are with his wonderful wife, Wendy, and their family.”

“Bruce Fleisher was my first postgame (post round) interview when I was 22, fresh out of college and nervous as hell. I remember shaking the microphone. He was so kind and understanding and hospitable. Had his golden days on Champions Tour. Rest In Peace.”

“Bruce Fleisher died today of cancer. I was on the Miami-Dade Community golf team in 1969 with Bruce. He had won the 1968 US Amateur. Great guy and great player. I was not in his league, but I was fortunate to know him even for a short time. Sad news and may he Rest In Peace!”
