I’ve been a big fan of Emmy Award winner Jim Huber for years. I really loved his work in the golf world. Every April I greatly looked forward to hearing Jim’s “Masters Today” pieces during the Masters. I’m saddened to have to post the news of Jim’s passing.
I met Mr. Huber last January (2011) at the PGA Merchandise Show. He was walking down the center isle opposite the direction I was walking. I stopped him and introduced myself, mentioning that I was a golf blogger. I told him how much I enjoyed his Masters pieces. He was thankful and appreciative. I half jokingly offered my services as his assistant at Augusta. He smiled and patted me on the back, letting me know that I hadn’t been the first to offer such a thing.
Rest in peace Jim. You’ll be missed.
