Mr. Bisplinghoff was an accomplished amateur golfer winning tournaments throughout the United States including the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship in 1952, the North South Championship in 1955 as well as the Florida Open and the Florida Amateur later that year. After his North South win he traveled to Europe where he lost in the quarter finals of the British Amateur and was runner up in the French Amateur. His performances in 1955 gained him an invitation into the 1956 Masters Tournament. He played golf at the University of Florida and met his wife of 42 years while she was a score keeper for him at one of his tournaments. She was also a golfer who played for Southern Methodist University. He went on to own and operate a successful wire business with his father and later with his son, Don Jr. who continues the business today.

Mr. Bisplinghoff will be missed by all family and friends as well as the members of Hidden Hills Country Club where he has been a member since 1965.

All friends, family and acquaintances are invited to attend the celebration of his life on December 5, 2012
