IOWA CITY, IA – Funeral arrangements for former Iowa golfer Cade Pleggenkuhle have been set. Visitation will be held today from 3 to 7:30 p.m. at Ward Van Slyke Colonial Chapel in Clear Lake, IA. His funeral will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. at Zion Lutheran Church, also in Clear Lake, IA. Cade died last Saturday, February 5, 2005, in a motorcycle accident near North Liberty.
Pleggenkuhle, 24, transferred to Iowa from Western Florida last season. He walked on in 2004, became the No. 1 golfer of the Hawkeyes, and the team MVP. In his only season with Iowa, he compiled four top 25 finishes and two top ten finishes. He led the team with a 74.7 shot average and tied for low round of 69 in the spring 2004 season.
“I’m glad that I got to be associated with him not only as a coach but as a friend,” Iow Golf Coach Terry Anderson Said. ” He will forever be remembered here at Iowa and will always be a part of the program. He was not only a great golfer but he was really a great person.”
