“I always appreciated Ron and his passion and appreciation for college golf. He was a real quality man and did a lot to promote college golf
I didn’t realize he had been in poor health until the last couple of weeks. It’s a real loss for golf.”
– Phil Mickelson

So sad to hear of the passing of Ron Balicki. No one loved college golf more then him and it won’t be the same without him. RIP my friend

Devastated to hear about the loss of Ron Balicki. College golf lost one of its best, most loyal supporters today. What a great man #RIPRon

We are sorry to hear about the loss of @WrongRon Ron Balicki. His commitment to young golfers & their collegiate pursuits was unparallelled.
