Our prayers and heartfelt sympathy go to Lance Bennett, Matt Kuchar's caddie, and his four-year-old daughter, Emma Grace Bennett, along with their immediate and extended family. Bennett's wife Angela died very unexpectedly on Wednesday.

Angela Bennett reportedly had epilepsy, for which medical treatments are far more prevalent and effective than, say, 30 years ago. But Lance had flown home to Texas on Tuesday after his wife had suffered what was evidently a very serious seizure.

Among those who have gone to Texas to help the family are fellow PGA Tour caddies James Edmondson (Ryan Palmer) and Jon Yarbrough (Scott Stallings). Undoubtedly with Bennett's blessing, Kuchar is remaining in Boston for this weekend's PGA Tour playoff event, with Brian Reed substituting for Bennett. Kuchar released the following statement through his management firm, Excel Sports:
Sybi [Kuchar's wife], the boys and I are sending our thoughts and prayers to Lance and Emma Grace during this devastating time. Angela was a cherished friend, a wonderful wife and a loving mother who made a major impact on all who were lucky enough to know her, and she will be greatly missed."
After this very unwelcome news, social media came alive with tweets from across the world of golf. Below are just a few of the posts:
