Our thoughts go out to Wesley's friends and family as well as members of Plainfield Country Club and his fellow PGA Members during this difficult time. Wesley was struck and killed by a car on Saturday night, January 3, in New York City. He had just finished his first season as the Director of Instruction at Plainfield Country Club. He exemplified all the qualities that a PGA Professional stands for and he will be greatly missed.
