The South Florida golf community lost another key member Sunday when longtime Hobe Sound Golf Club head professional Tom Yeager died in a Gainesville hospital.

Yeager, who had been undergoing cancer treatments, was 54. The Jupiter resident had been dealing with health issues since 2018.

Yeager had been the PGA Head Professional at Hobe Sound Golf Club since 2003.

“When you think of Hobe Sound Golf Club, you think of Tom,” said Meredith Schuler, assistant executive director for the South Florida PGA who twice did 100-hole daily marathons with Yeager to raise charity money for the section.

“He was so encouraging, inspiring and optimistic. It’s a big loss for the South Florida golf community. He was incredibly well respected by his peers and the entire golf community. “
