Neil’s body was transported home from the USA kindly by many whom he had been working with during his time there and people he had met
There was a contribution at Neil’s service where £1800 was raised, this money was presented to The Paul Lawrie Foundation and asked to be used to help fund and nourish young raw talent in the North East of Scotland in the hope that someone may be able to follow in Neil’s footsteps and succeed in the USA
The Neil Fyfe Golf Foundation was created by The Fyfe Family to honour Neil’s memory
George and Steve Milne were the worthy winners but it was a mixed bag of emotions due to the loss of such a great friend and the reality of it all once the competition ended
What did come out of the holiday was the need to continue the great gesture by the Fyfe family to make sure Neil’s name would be remembered for the right reasons and not the manner he was killed.
The foundations were laid by taking this trophy “The Neil Fyfe Memorial Cup” and feelings generated by the Original Six home to Scotland, where we would organise a annual golf outing and all proceeds would be contributed to the Neil Fyfe Golf Foundation.
This competition is an annual event and contributes to Neil’s memory in the sport he loved, a lovely gesture from all Neil’s co-workers and the whole Golden Bear Franchise.
