WOW, what a shocker to learn my good buddy Frosty, a.k.a Jeffrey Rothstein of Delray Beach, Florida, has gone to the Big Golf Course in the Sky. Frosty My Love, Gone All Too Soon…

We first met in 2008 at the Ryder Cup in Valhalla and its been pretty much off to the races since then! Nearly ten years of walking the fairways together, teeing it up together and going out to dinner together. Frosty, for all of us blessed to know him, was a “together” guy.

He lived his life with gusto, persevered through health setbacks courageously and simply loved life and loved the people he met in life along the way. I Count myself truly fortunate to be one of those people.

The early days, the 2009 PLAYERS, the day we honored President Bush No. 41 and hung out with Pete Dye for a little bit!

He was the consummate good guy. If you were going to be anywhere near Delray Beach he wanted you to come by and visit. He was a generous man, always with a room for you to stay overnight and he was a wonderful chef too. His generosity went far beyond what most people knew, including offering long term shelter at his house to people who just needed a place to call home.

We were always laughing but right now I can’t remember any of the jokes. I do know he enjoyed eating with me or at least putting up with me with all my unknowingly “mhmm, mhmm, mhmm,” appreciatively enjoying my dinner. We shared hotel rooms together quite a few times over the years, probably more than he wanted to but that was the kind of guy he was.

It’s hard to believe he is gone and won’t be at the Somes’ PLAYERS party in a few months. Let’s do something special to honor Frosty this year at THE PLAYERS.

I guess this is where you have to feel the pain, bite the lip, and carry on knowing you were blessed to know the person and have so many wonderful memories… here’s a fw of them in the photo gallery below…
