Green family hit by another tragedy

DALLAS: Hunter Green, the son of former professional golfer Ken Green, was found dead in his room on the campus of Southern Methodist University last week, school authorities said.

University officials said the body of a student was found around midday on Friday and the medical examiner’s office identified the student as 21-year-old Green. Officials said no foul play was involved and an investigation is under way.

It’s the second family tragedy in the past year for Ken Green, who won five PGA Tour events between 1985-89. He was a member of the US Ryder Cup team in 1989.

Green had his lower right leg amputated after a recreational vehicle accident eight months ago. The accident killed his brother and girlfriend.

In a personal blog, Green commented on his son’s death.

“Well, today is another sad day,” he said. “I’m sorry to say that my youngest son, Hunter, has passed. His journey in life has ended and I can’t tell you how difficult understanding this is.” — AFP
