In Memoriam: Bunker Mulligan, 1953-2005
Golf and politics blogger and foreign war veteran Mike Reed died Saturday at his home in Texas after a massive heart attack. He was 52 years old.
Known to bloggers as "Bunker Mulligan," Mike was renowned for his patriotism, his service to his country, his fierce loyalty to his home state of Texas, his concise and poignant political writing and his extensive knowledge of golf history and golf design. He was an excellent player, honing his handicap to single digits in recent weeks.
Regardless of what people thought of his politics, Mike was well liked and well respected by supporters of either side of the aisle. He was passionate with his views without being unfair, obstreperous, or dismissive of others. He was thoughtful and supportive to red and blue alike, and he loved his country with a patriotism that would have impressed even the founding fathers. Always willing to chat with golf bloggers, Mike provided thoughtful commentary across a wide range of the game's issues. Thoughts and tributes can be left at Bunker Mulligan. The family asks for donations to be made to Homes for our troops.
