Lietzke credited his older brother, Duane, for introducing him to the game of golf at age five.

Lietzke attended the University of Houston in Houston, Texas. He graduated in 1973 and turned pro in 1974.


Lietzke's first PGA Tour victory was in the 1977 Tucson Open. Although he had to wait until the Champions Tour to win a major in the 2003 U.S. Senior Open, Lietzke had a relatively successful career, winning a combined total of 20 tournaments on the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour. His career year on the PGA Tour was 1981, when he had three tournament victories.

The earnings of the fund are used to provide scholarships to worthy Wood County students who have shown an interest in golf."
