I just heard that Corinne Hoffman died. It was a couple of weeks ago but I just heard about it. Maybe some of you knew her, so I thought I would post this. Below is an obituary on her I found on the net from her local paper. She and I had some major scream in your face arguments over the years but I will miss her. She was doing tournaments when no one else was and showed that local tours could work. She was a real hard worker, but man, could she get you aggravated sometimes.

Obituary.

I believe her sister Bonnie came in second in the ladies US. Open one year. She could really play, I saw her beat Dennis Hatch 11 to 1 in a mens tournament she entered. I think she has quit playing.

Corrine Hoffman is someone who deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. She almost single handedly saved the Florida Tour. This is sad news. Rest in peace, Corrine.
