Herb Brooks’ legacy was evident June 13 at the Herb Brooks Golf Classic at Victory Links where 135 golfers, including a who's-who of big names in American hockey, showed their support for the idolized coach

The outing is held each year to benefit the Herb Brooks Foundation and help fund the mission of the foundation to grow the game of hockey, while paying respects to arguably the most iconic hockey coach of all time.

Minnesota Wild head coach Mike Yeo, who participated in the event, said coaching with Herb was an opportunity for him to learn from one of the best hockey minds and an overall great person.

Minnesota Public Radio ran a great story today about how two Twin Cities golf courses, Prestwick in Woodbury and Oneka Ridge in White Bear Lake, are diverting stormwater runoff and building ponds to irrigate their fairways and greens. In the story, "Golf courses start to reuse stormwater to keep grass green," reporter Elizabeth Dunbar told how the two courses will use stormwater to supply part, but not all, of their irrigation needs.
