For a number of players, their road family becomes what is affectionately known as The Truck.
At every Web.com Tour event, The Truck is the equivalent of ground zero, with a host of PGA TOUR staff members and volunteers serving as the heartbeat of the tournament, from logistics to operations to scoring and oftentimes to a sounding board for stories about putters gone awry.
On Friday, July 15, 2016, The Truck lost one of its own.
Dennis ‘Zink’ Zinkon, who assisted the Web.com Tour in all facets of operations, passed away from a pulmonary embolism. He was 55.
To those who knew Zink, he was a familiar face each week, often greeting players and complete strangers with his unique smile and understanding of the life professional golfers lead.
In 2016 we raised over $25,000 for the following charities:
The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA)
Wolfson Children's Hospital
Panama Championship Charities
To honor Zink's giving and caring nature,
we will continue raising funds for various charities.
Thank you for helping us honor his memory.
Always Our Brother
