Kyle VanWinkle honored with annual golf tournament

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The family of a victim of a deadly beating at Arrowhead Stadium is honoring him through a sport he loved.

The first Kyle VanWinkle Golf Classic took place at Meadowbrook Golf and Country Club.

Last December, a group attacked VanWinkle after he was found in someone else’s vehicle. He collapsed and died at the hospital.

“It’s really moving and it really touches you to see all the support for the family, for his wife and will especially,” his father Dean said. “I’m using his putter today to get him out here with us the best we can.”

Prosecutors charged Joshua Bradley with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Kyle VanWinkle.
