 The LPGA Tour says longtime rules official Doug Brecht has died after a three-month battle with the West Nile virus. He was 62.

Brecht was hospitalized in August during the Jamie Farr Classic in Toledo, Ohio. He later was transferred to his home in Oklahoma to continue fighting the virus. LPGA Tour Commissioner Mike Whan said Brecht's wife told him he died peacefully Friday with his family close around him.
